Teachers and staff met today to discuss our plans for continuing the education of our students. We will be working hard this week to prepare packets and any virtual learning activities. Your child’s teacher will be in contact with you this week to give you some details and answer questions you may have so far. Thank you for being patient with us through this process. Stay safe and tell those kids we miss them! 💗

Yesterday, the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) cancelled all spring activities and festivals for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. The removal of those items from the school calendar DOES NOT imply that events currently remaining on the calendar have not or will not be cancelled. Many events will need to be cancelled and those cancellations come from different sources. We realize that this is a difficult time for everyone. Please be patient as decisions are made by the many organizations and entities involved.

We’ve had a few questions about the beef stick fundraiser. Here is a note from Linseh, our PTO President: We have the following options for parents/guardians that owe money, need to turn in beef sticks, or have extra orders to pick up. 1. Commercial Bank in Oswego has set up as a designated drop off location for money only. They ask that all customers please use the drive thru. When they go to the drive thru, please ask tell them the money is for Neosho Heights PTO. They will then ask for the student's name in which to credit the funds to. They are keeping track for us at the bank, and we are ever so grateful! 2. For students that have sticks to turn in OR have extra orders of sticks to pick up, please have them text us at ‪620-423-1411‬, message us on Facebook, or email us at nehipto@gmail.com to make arrangements. We have already had parents starting to reach out (or stopping by my house to ask) and so we are slowly going to get things turned in.

We started practicing for our Pacer Test in PE. The Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity 20 meter shuttle run fitness test. The test is progressive in intensity-it is easy at the beginning and gets more difficult at the end. The test is set up to allow a period of warm-up running and helps kids learn about pace. Our method of testing in the past has been a long distance run. We replaced that method of testing with the Pacer test around 5 years ago. On the first day of practice MaKayla Farrow-Getman broke the 5th grade record of 50 laps. Kaitlyn Williams held the previous record. Makayla ran 54 laps. Congratulations, Makayla! You did a great job. I also need to give a shout out to her classmates. When I took her picture they all clapped for her and were sincerely happy for her to get the record. Great job 5th grade!

On the first couple days of school, fourth graders wrote poems using the 5 senses- see, hear, smell, taste, and feel. They first filled out a graphic organizer with their ideas, and then they put those ideas into lines of a poem. The next day, they typed their poems using their Chromebooks and were able to experiment with font types, size, and color. They also learned how to insert an image in their document. Finally, we printed their poems and hung them in the hall for others to read!
