                          Our enrollment at the high school is 240

                          This past Wednesday we took all JR’s and SR’s on a College and Career Road Trip.

                          I have observed a number of classrooms and feel fortunate to have a great staff that

                        know our kids and have had experience with them.

                          Our Building Leadership Team met this past week

                        ● We discussed P/T Conference format for October

                          We are very pleased with the floor work done over the summer in the FACS room.

                          We will be sending a number of students to the State Fair for various reasons. As

                        always, the band will be performing on Wednesday. FFA and FCCLA students will be

                        attending as well and working in booths or providing service projects.

                          Our individualized PD day is up and coming. Teachers are to have their plans turned in

                        Wednesday for approval.

                          We will have our first staff meeting next week.  

                          I’ll be attending the KSHSAA Board of Directors meeting next Wednesday in Topeka                            and then heading to Manhattan. An area Superintendent named Mr. Grover volunteered                           me for mentoring two new high school principals in our area. The Kansas Educational

                        Leadership Institute (KELI) provides leadership training for administrators with their initial

                        license. I think it will be a learning experience for me as well.



                          MS Volleyball has enough girls for a 7A, 8A and Mixed B team this year.

                          MS Football is off to a 2-0 start.

                          The schedule is a growing problem, as we were barely able to get a full schedule for                            the A team and now two teams have dropped to 8 man games based on their numbers.                           I’ve reached out across the state to no avail on this year’s schedule. Our league is                             looking into joining other leagues for football scheduling purposes next year.

                          MS Cross Country has more girls than usual this year, but less boys.

                          HS Golf was able to recruit some new team members, so we will be able to have a V                            and JV team.

                          HS Cross Country ran at Clearwater and Hesston, both uniquely formatted meets, but                          now will settle into their “regular season” of standard meets.

                          HS Volleyball is working to find the right mix of girls as they had many holes to fill this                           season.

                          HS Football opened with a competitive and tough home game, coming up short                                    against Garden Plain at the end of the game. Our next two games will be league                                      opponents, but non-district games. This season begins a new format with 5 district                                   games.

                          We were able to recognize Harold Bohm at our home football game. 45 years of                                 service is quite the feat!

                          We have a Debate Coach, Jackie Ternes is able to fill the role for our kids involved in                           Debate.

                          Home Football vs Chaparral will be Hometown Heroes Night and the Mini Cheer Clinic

                          Our home golf tournament will be 9/17

                          Volleyball is on the road at Haven tourney and then a tough tri at Garden Plain,                                    featuring Rose Hill, one of the top 4A teams in the state.

                          Our Marching Band will perform at the State Fair on 9/12



                          We ended up doing two crisis drills in August.

                          Fall sports are underway.

                          Mrs. Weber’s 8th grade recently completed their ceiling tile project. They picked a                                significant event or person from history and then decorate a piece of butcher paper the                             size of a ceiling tile. This is the second year she has done this, and her room really looks                                awesome.

                          We have started our book discussion over Culturize by Jimmy Casas. We are sharing

                        our thoughts via a Google doc. We don’t have a time during the day for all of us to meet,

                        so this is the best way. Good conversations.

                          Teachers are preparing their submissions for the Personal Learning Day on Monday,

                        September 24th.

                          CMS has once again partnered with the Golden Age Home. Since we have seminar

                        every day, this gives us a chance to have a set day during the week for a seminar class

                        to go over and do an activity with the senior citizens.

                          We have also brought back clubs. Every Friday, the students go to a club of their                                 choice during seminar time. This allows students to see teachers in a different light. For                            example, Mr. Gillett is hosting the “Who’s Line is it Anyway?” club. Students and teachers                         are really enjoying it.

                          We also wanted to make reading a focus for this year. We will be giving away prizes to

                        students for reaching their AR goal and other accomplishments. Every Monday during

                        seminar is DEAR (drop everything and read) time. The students also have the reward of

                        Mr. Orsak spending a day on the roof if 75% of the students reach their AR goal by the

                        end of the semester.



                          We have completed our first two crisis drills, staff and students did a great job.

                          Ms. Long, Mrs. Kutilek, and I all attended the MTSS conference and it was                                           Phenomenal.

                          Today is our first FAB family day and they are SO excited.

                          Jump rope for heart kick off is also today.

                          Today was the first day for DARE and Chief Winter and I met with 5th graders                                      interested in crossing guard and that will be starting soon as well.

                          Finishing testing and then planning our implementation to meet the student in needs                             skills.

                          Professional Development days by teams will be happening next week and I look                                 forward to the time to work with our great team.



                          Mrs. Waltrip, Jeanine Long and myself attended the MTSS conference September 4-                            6th.

                          Our first FAB family event was Friday, September 7th.

                          Benchmark screening has begun for all students K-5 in the areas of Reading and                                 Math.

                          Teachers will analyze the data from the benchmark screenings and set up schedules                           for interventions to begin. All students receive core instruction and students in need will                            receive targeted instruction in addition to the core.

                          New teacher training continues in Pathways (K and 2nd) and Engineering by Design                            (K-5).

                          The individualized professional development day is coming on September 24th.
