Beautiful day for NCKL Track at Concordia! Longhorns competed well all day! We will post team results when they become available!
[05/14/19] In case your student did not bring home the information paper about our reward trip tomorrow, here are the basics. We are leaving at 1:45 from the AMS parking lot, and we will be home around 10:30. Students do not need to bring any money, because the package we purchased includes two pieces of pizza and a soda. We have faculty chaperones riding the buses, and several parent chaperones meeting us in Olathe. Students are encouraged to bring their cell phones in order to call rides when we are 30 minutes out of Abilene on our way home. Other than that, they don’t need to bring anything else. Please feel free to call the school office with any questions.
Congratulations to our final Students of the Week for the 2018-2019 school year!!
