WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!!
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL - THURSDAY, AUGUST 27TH
The Board of Education and I would like to welcome all students, parents, employees and patrons back to school. We all hope that this will be another great year in USD 356. Conway Springs School District has many things to be proud of and we hope to build on our previous achievements by having another great year.
It is of great importance for teachers, parents and administrators to work together to help students succeed. As a parent, if you ever have questions, please don't hesitate to call. It is better to fix a potential problem early rather than let it grow into even a larger problem. Check student's grades often on power school and make sure you communicate with your student daily about how things are going at school. As with any school year, there will be good days and bad days for all students. Help them to understand that life is that way. Enjoy the good days and know that if you have a bad day, there will be good ones down the road.
At USD 356 - we set high standards and expect quite a bit out of our students. This is why our ACT scores continue to compare well with other schools and our activities continue to rank at a high level when compared. Therefore, students will be pushed to do their best and to behave in a way that is conducive to education success. Please help push your students to do well each day. Success doesn't always come easy. Hard work, focus and a unified push from teachers and parents will help a student reach their personal potential.
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 kids. As a parent, I have had two students go through our district and I am thankful each day for the education they received here.
I wish everyone well as we head into the new year. Again, contact your student's teacher if you have any questions.
