Principal's Newsletter

As usual, the last month has flown by and we are finding ourselves almost at the midpoint of another fun and eventful month full of love, happiness, and great learning opportunities for our students!  I am very blessed to work with such wonderful students, parents, and staff in Greyhound Country!

Our District Needs Assessment will be available this month.  Your input is important to our success and efforts to provide the best education possible for all students.  We appreciate your feedback in advance! 

            The Home & School Food Fundraiser is once again underway!  Students will have an opportunity to sell items to raise funds to support our school and have a chance to earn a LIMO ride with Thunder, Top Seller receives a FREE 1 Night Stay at Castle Rock with FREE Waterpark passes for up to 6, and many cool prizes!

            A HUGE Thank you to all families participating in our Candy-Grams Fundraiser!  We raised $193.00!!!  Way to Go Hounds!  All proceeds are being donated to the Sweet Springs Public Library.  A special thank you to our Elementary Student Council for all of their help in organizing this community service project!

Our 5/6 Basketball seasons’ finale tournament is this coming weekend in Concordia.  I’d like to take an opportunity to thank our players, coaches, and parents for an exciting season full of great sportsmanship, hard work, and team work!  Good Luck to all of our players and coaches as they head into this week’s tournament. 

Volleyball interest forms will be sent home with students in grades 3rd-6th later this week.       

As always, if there are ever questions or concerns, I am happy to discuss them with you.    My email is or by calling the elementary office at 660-335-6348.
