Although the thermometer still tells us it is summer, our fall activities have already begun and therefore things are busy.    September is loaded with activities which means a very busy time.   As students become more engaged in activities and even class meetings, etc., it is important for them to stay focused on their grades.   Finding a balance between activities, studies and friends and family can be difficult at times.

     We all hear stories of accidents with school buses and people running through stop signs on buses.   As the school year is getting underway, please make sure to take caution when meeting or passing a school bus.   I actually had to fill in for one of our route drivers this year and it is a great deal of responsibility that you take on when driving a bus loaded with students.    It is important for everyone to follow the rules of the road when it comes to school buses and student safety.  

      I have posted information in the past on the Kansas Education Systems Accreditation.   It is the new five-year process that all schools in Kansas must work through to be accredited by the state.   We are currently in our third year of the process.   We have been working ahead in this process and feel that we are in good shape at this time.  We will have our year three visitation from an outside team in the spring.   

     School is off to a good and quiet start.   As always, I hope the quit part will continue.   If you have any questions for your child’s teacher, please do not hesitate to call.    Good communication between a parent and a teacher can make all the difference in a child’s education.  


 As always - I truly appreciate the support that this community shows for our students and our school.  Conway Springs is a great place to raise children!
