Message from our Superintendent Dr Jim Hinson
Here is a copy of the email that Dr Jim Hinson sent out Tuesday in response to Integrated Technology Initiative that was approved at the Shawnee Mission Board of Education meeting on Monday 1/27. Here is the link for the list of Elementary Schools that are part of the phase one roll out of the Apple Ipod Computers.
If weather conditions are severe enough to warrant closing school, it will be broadcast on radio and television stations during the 6:00 a.m. & 6:30 a.m. newscasts. The Shawnee Mission School District also has a 24-hour information line with school closing information. 993-7380 and www.smsd.org. Reminder, If you did not receive a text message you need to do the following: Parents and students, confirm with your school that the cell phone number is on file. Then text "Y" to 68453 to opt in.
Birthday Book ClubThe Birthday Book Club is an opportunity for you to donate a new book to our school library in honor of your child’s birthday.

Please use this form to join. Please direct all questions to Brandy Butcher at 913-422-4734.
Box Top for Education
Congrats to all!!! For the school year 2013-2014 we collected a little over $1500 worth of Box Tops. Please keep cutting those box tops and send them into school. If you want to continue doing Ms Gill's contest for free seating in the lunchroom here are some new collection sheets.
To do the contest only 10 Box Tops per collection sheet, they have to have 10 on the sheet. Please no bonus Box Tops and Labels for Education on the collection sheets. If you just want to clip and send in a zip lock baggie you can do that as well. You just will not be entered into Ms Gill's lunchroom contest. Any questions please email Celeste Kirmer.
