New School Year Announcements!

Welcome back to another great year at Pawnee Heights Schools!  We have many new staff members we are very excited to welcome into our Tiger family, Lisa Hoffman is our new 2nd Grade Teacher, Brandi Boese is teaching 3rd Grade, JNell Green is new to our kitchen staff, and Antoinette Root has taken over as the 7-12 Principal.  We are very glad to have all of you!

Athletic schedules for the year along with the one-page yearly calendar have been updated to the website.  Also, we have a new Facebook page so everyone can keep up with the daily activities at the school!  The page is called Pawnee Heights Unified School District 496. 

The Pawnee Heights High School Football team will retake the field this Friday at home at 6:00 against Wheatland/Grinnel.  Admission will be $1.00 for everyone!  We look forward to seeing everyone cheer on the Tigers!

 
Help Earn Cash for Our School

One of the easiest ways to earn cash for USD 496 is by participating in the Box Tops for Education Program.  By clipping and collecting box tops, our school can earn hundreds of dollars per year!  Each box top is worth ten cents.  This money is used to purchase books for classroom libraries or reading projects that benefit our entire school.

There are 300 General Mills' products that bear the official logo of Box Tops for Education.  Examples of some of these products are: General Mills' cereals, Bisquick, and Pillsbury.

This is such a simple fundraiser! Here's what you need to do:

1) Clip Box Tops from participating products.

2) Send the labels to school with your child.  The school office and classrooms have a drop off box.

3) That's it! What an easy way to help our school!

With all of the products in the program it should be easy to increase our earnings.  USD 496 thanks you for supporting our school.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Mounday or Mrs. Durler at (620) 527-4211.

 
Credit Card Payments Now Available

USD 496 Pawnee Heights is pleased to announce the launch of KanPay Counter, the point-of-sale solution provided by Kansas.gov, to process student fee payments!

The school district understands the importance of providing a convenient method of payment for paying student fees.  More and more people are using credit and debit cards as a preferred method of payment and we are very excited to offer this from our partnership with Kansas.gov.  Payments can be made in the school office or by using the KanPay link under Main Menu on the left.  A 2.5% transaction fee will automatically be applied to any credit card payments.  

If you have any questions on how to use this service, please contact Traci Nuckolls or Shannon Milch at 620-527-4211.

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December.

Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl.

We should have known... ONLY women would be able to drag a fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.
