Good morning, Grizzlies! Today is Friday, December 1st  
and it is “A” Day.


Today is National Women Support Women's Day. This day has been recognized as an important day for women to celebrate themselves and each other in the U.S. The first International Women’s support Day occurred on February 28, 1909, when 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours and better pay. Today, women still march in cities worldwide each year to fight for equality, justice, and peace for all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or gender identity. 


Love to argue? Into acting? The speech and debate team is the team for you! We are having an informational meeting about joining the team on December 13th after school in Ms. Gerecke’s room 504. The team is open to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade!


The Boys Basketball teams suffered a couple of tough losses last night at Pleasant Lea. B team was led in scoring by Landen Johnson and had a super solid defensive performance turned in by Braxton Buckey and Carson Bedell.


The A team came up just short in their game against Pleasant Lea being led in scoring by Donnell Judie and Kaymon Moberg, while having a solid all-around defensive performance led by DJ Freeman and Graham McCluer.


The Grizzlies will be back in action again next week on Tuesday evening against Pioneer Ridge. Come out and support your Grizzlies!!! Go Grizzlies!!

Good job, girls! 😊


We are excited to announce that our students can participate in the “Backpacks for Hunger” program at Paul Kinder Middle School.

This is an exciting partnership with Church of the Resurrection/Blue Springs to provide nutritious, kid-friendly snacks every weekend during the school year for families in need.

It is our hope that providing nutritious food over the weekend will benefit your child in areas of self-esteem, concentration, attendance, and academic performance. We kicked off the “Backpacks for Hunger” program on Friday, October 6th.

Students in this program receive a grocery sack full of non-perishable snacks to take home for the weekend. The grocery sack will be placed in their lockers on Fridays.

If you are interested in receiving more information about this program, please email your student’s counselor.
