Mrs. Schandorf’s Microbiology class took samples from around the school to see what would grow in their Petri dish.

Mrs. Schandorf’s Zoology class inspected and identified cow heart anatomy. Thanks to Creekstone Farms for the cow hearts.

Mr. St. Pierre’s Anatomy & Physiology classes have been working several class periods on a cat dissection.

Due to the potential for severe weather, USD 470 will dismiss school at 2 p.m. today, Monday, May 2, 2022. This decision was made in an effort to complete transportation routes prior to the onset of any severe weather in our area. We appreciate your understanding as we place the safety of our students and staff as our top priority.

Today's Arkansas City High School Softball make-up games at Andover Central have been postponed to Friday, May 13. Arkansas City Middle School Tennis in Wellington has been canceled. All practices/rehearsals are canceled.

Be sure to keep an eye on the weather today and know where to go should you need shelter. As a reminder, each of our elementary schools has a FEMA-rated storm shelter.

Adams: 1201 N. 10th
C-4: 11945 292nd Rd.
Frances Willard: 201 N. 4th
IXL: 6758 322nd Rd.
Jefferson: 131 Osage
Roosevelt: 300 N. B

While the primary function of district FEMA safe rooms is to protect students and staff members during the school day, the intent has always been to make them available to the public whenever possible. Neighborhood residents and district employees serve as FEMA safe room hosts in the event of a tornado or other severe weather outside of the regular school day. Every effort is made to open the storm shelters regardless of time of day.

Debido al potencial de clima severo, USD 470 cerrará la escuela a las 2 p.m. hoy, lunes 2 de mayo del 2022. Esta decisión se tomó en un esfuerzo por completar las rutas de transporte antes del inicio de cualquier clima severo en nuestra área. Agradecemos su comprensión ya que ponemos la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y personal como nuestra prioridad principal.

Hoy los juegos de sofbol aplazados de la Preparatoria de Arkansas City en Andover Central se han pospuesto al viernes 13 de mayo. El Tenis de la secundaria de Arkansas City en Wellington se ha cancelado. Todas las prácticas/entrenamientos están canceladas.

Asegúrese de estar atento al clima hoy y sepa a dónde ir si necesita refugio. Como recordatorio, cada una de nuestras escuelas primarias tiene un refugio contra tormentas calificado por FEMA.

Adams: 1201 N. 10th
C-4: 11945 292nd Rd.
Frances Willard: 201 N. 4th

Mientras que la función principal de los cuartos seguros de FEMA del distrito es proteger a los estudiantes y miembros del personal durante el día escolar, la intención siempre ha sido ponerlos a disposición del público siempre que sea posible. Los residentes del vecindario y los empleados del distrito sirven como anfitriones de los cuartos seguros de FEMA en caso de un tornado o algún otro clima severo fuera del día escolar regular. Se hace todo lo posible para abrir los refugios contra tormentas independientemente de la hora del día.

At the June 2021 Kansas State Board of Education meeting, Commissioner of Education Randy Watson announced the establishment of a Graduation Requirements Task Force, which includes members of the State Board of Education, business leaders, curriculum directors, high school principals, counselors, teachers, KSHSAA, local boards of education, and superintendents charged with examining graduation requirements in Kansas from at least three different lenses:

- Additional courses or deletion of courses required for graduation (if any).
- Examination of competencies and multiple ways to show mastery of skills that allow students to move at their own pace and time.
- Examination of any additional requirements in addition to the high school diploma (value-added assets such as industry-recognized certificate, college credits, etc.)

KSDE and this task force is asking for your feedback to help guide the work of this group. Please use this link https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScgh-IpVSnY3zDAAKh1UdVOs48u-bcjLjqxI8gOP2-8TYBQHA/viewform?usp=sf_link to complete a short survey regarding your thoughts on Kansas’ high school graduation requirements.

We’ve completed rotations of the play “Every Brilliant Thing” by Duncan MacMillan & wellness sessions at ACHS. However, this is just the start of the conversation as we debrief the play next week in advisory and continue to build healthy habits around physical and mental health.

There is still one performance for parents & community members on Friday, April 1st at 8pm in the HS Auditorium.

Students selected more wellness sessions when they weren’t attending the play—a group went fishing on Wednesday and another group spent time with students at Jefferson elementary. Others played basketball, learned dances, put together puzzles, played board games, made motivational posters, and learned new makeup skills: All different ways to decompress, relax, or build friendships that help us be our best selves.

9th & 10th graders also completed their state required CPR & First Aid — thanks to Deb and the pool crew.
