Back in the swing of things:
Students have now been in school for a few weeks. We have had a very quiet start to the school year, which is always a good thing. Students seem to be back in the school mode and things have gone well.
As we look at the September calendar, it is a busy month. There is still some, beginning of school testing, that has to be done, many activities, school pictures, etc. fill the days. Making sure students keep up on their school work while being involved in various activities is always a challenge. However, KSHSAA continues to do studies showing that students who are involved in extracurricular activities tend to do better in school. The connection students make in these activities seems to be a major plus.
As we run through the month of September, there are many activities at both the high school and middle school. If you get a chance, come out and support the students in their activities. They truly enjoy having the support from the community.
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!!
