CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE ON A SUCCESSFUL BOOK DRIVE FOR USD 289 SCHOOLS!

As you all know, all levels of USD 289 Schools held a book drive to collect books for the three libraries within the school district. The books are still currently being sorted through, but many have went into each of the libraries.  With the books that cannot be used, the Wellsville Retirement Center will soon be going through the stacks to see what they can use for their residents.  We also plan to donate to various shelters and charities within the four county area.  With the remaining books, WMS librarian, Ardith Bell and WHS librarian, Chris Patton are taking them to be sold and then using the money received to buy additional books for the libraries.  It is a WIN-WIN situation for all of the students within the USD 289 school district.  With the middle school and the high school starting their book collection at the beginning of September, the middle school students donated a total of 2,862 books and the high school donated a total of 740.  The elementary began their book drive the first part of October and the elementary students donated a total of 1,855 books.  This combined for a GRAND TOTAL OF 5,457 books. 

Below is a chart of how many books each class donated.  Thank you to all of the students, the parents and everyone in the community who helped make this book drive such a success.  As promised, the elementary class that collected the most books will receive a pizza party that will be provided by the Wellsville High School FBLA organization.  Mrs. Sharon VanHorn’s 1st Grade Class won the competition with a TOTAL of 593 books collected.  They will receive their pizza party on February 3, 2017.  And to thank all of the other teachers and classes that participated, we have made personalized bookmarks.  (If you did not take school pictures during the month of September, however, we do not have a personalized bookmark for you.  Our sincerest apologies.)

 

ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED!  Happy Reading to You All!

“Books. . .are like lobster shells, we surround ourselves with ‘em, then we grow out of ‘em and leave ‘em behind, as evidence of our earlier stages of development.”

USD 289 community members:

Below is a description of what our Commissioner of Education, Dr. Randy Watson has been
working on this last two years. He, along with State Board of Education Members traveled the
state to ask questions about what education should look like in Kansas. This is the information
they have published and adopted. We are working to fulfill this vision of Kansas education and
are excited to say we had started a movement in this direction already. It will be a long process
but I am very proud of our students, teachers and the community support for this movement.
