February News: Superintendent Sherri Edmundson

Winter season is upon us! We have had typical Nebraska weather the past month! Please make sure your children are coming to school prepared for the weather. We feel it’s important for students to get outside as much as possible, so please make sure they are prepared for recess, and especially if they walk to school or to and from the bus stops.

Signs and crossing guards in the mornings and afternoons have helped tremendously with the flow of traffic on Central Avenue. I am impressed with how our students, staff, and patrons have followed the guidelines in the parking lot! It makes our parking lot and Central Street a lot safer when this happens!

The speech team did not get to compete this past weekend, but have more meets coming up. Girls’ basketball got 3rd in the B division at MUDECAS. The boys’ basketball team has to make up their game yet, but are playing for 1st place in the B division. Junior high girls are just getting started.

We have added a non-voting student member to the school board. That is Austin Herr, Student Council president. In Austin’s absence, the student body elected Shannon Jones to sit in. We look forward to seeing increased communication between the board and students through this person!

Our sympathies go out to our Pawnee City neighbors and students in the loss of their senior student, Kolt Byrd, to muscular dystrophy. These types of losses are very hard on communities and schools.

Humor of the month (because I had a birthday this month!). You know you’re old when the gleam in your eyes is from the sun reflecting off your bifocals, your mind makes contracts your body can’t meet, or when your back goes out more than you do! Enjoy the remainder of the school year and please take note of the days we are not in school because of in-service, speech meets, and music contests!

Go Titans!
