    Sublette School News

    The first quarter of the school year is complete! We feel like we have been sprinting to get things done with our late start this year.  Many things have changed for the better, and there is plenty to be excited about.

     

    You may have seen flyers around town or on Facebook advertising events for the littlest ones in our community.  Gayla Lohfink from Southwest Plains Regional Service Center has been helping the elementary school by promoting early childhood programs at the preschool, daycare centers, and the library.  She leads fun activities with the kids, and stresses the importance of literacy, beginning at a very young age.  This is also an area that the state would like to see all communities improve.  The push is for early learning that starts at home before kids even come to preschool.  The next LiNK read-aloud day at the Haskell Township Library is November 15, at 10:30.  

     

    Our literacy events are possible because we were fortunate enough to be awarded a LINK grant. We also use the LINK grant to fund programs for older students by holding literacy events in places where we will reach lots of kids. If you weren’t able to attend Touchdown to Reading, please mark your calendars for Reading with Santa on Tuesday, December 17, in between the girls’ and boys’ basketball games.  

     

    Our entire district adopted a new math curriculum for this school year.  So far, things have been going very well.  Our K-8th-grade classrooms chose i-READY Math, and we are very excited to see the growth of our students.  It starts with a computer program that places the students on a path that allows them to work independently at their level and back-fill any gaps they have in their learning.  There is also a games portion within the program.  So far, the teachers and the students are enjoying the new program. 

     

    The high school teachers also have new math materials from Pearson.  Their program has more digital components so that the teachers can assign a mix of textbook assignments, online assignments, and practice. 

     

    We have added a teaching pathway at the high school this year, taught by Ashley Winger.  We are hoping to encourage more students to explore teaching as a profession, and hopefully get some of those to come back to our community and work in our schools.  We love the idea of helping develop a field that is in dire need in Kansas!

     

    Finally, our BEST after school program is back.  This year it’s run by Michelle Avritt and Kelly Matteson.  We always have tons of kids in this program, and the teachers and helpers do an outstanding job of helping our kids with their school work and doing fun activities after school. 

     

    We love to show off what is happening in our school district, so please come see us!  Here are some upcoming events where you can find us:

     

    Veteran’s Program at the elementary school, November 11, at 2 pm

    LINK read aloud at the Haskell Township Library, November 15, at 10:30 am

    Grade School Program, December 16, 2 pm or 7 pm

    Reading with Santa, December 17, between the girls and boys basketball games.

    Middle School and High School Band & Choir Program, December 19, at 7 pm

    Sublette High Students attend Kansas Honors Program

    Each year, the University of Kansas Alumni Association recognizes area seniors for their academic excellence.   The program was held Wednesday, October 9th on the campus of Garden City High School.  For seniors to be recognized, they must be in the top 10% of their class academically.  This year, Dylan Watson, Elizabeth Horinek, and Alexa Brain represented Sublette High School.  All three were presented medallions by Kansas University Chancellor Douglas A. Girod, and the medallions can be worn during graduation ceremonies.  Congratulations to these outstanding SHS students.

    ANTI-VAPING INFORMATION

    I have received the following information from KSHSAA on Vaping and wanted to share it with everyone. As I stated at parents night I will make an effort to share pertinent information that I receive. Please take time to read the article and then click on the links at the bottom as it shares information on Vaping. At Sublette MS & HS we are taking a strong stand on eliminating Vaping in our schools.

    I hope this is helpful information. Mr. Marlin

    ANTI-VAPING INFORMATION

    Vaping or e-cigarette use is growing rapidly in our schools. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that 20% of high school students vape. The Kansas State Board of Education has created a task force to assist schools in addressing this issue by creating educational resources related to building a vape-free school, risk awareness, and cessation. Links to several of the resources available can be found below and many more resources will become available in the future. Additionally, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) has started addressing this issue through online educational content found at NFHSLearn.com, with the Understanding Vaping and E-Cigarettes course.

    Thank you for your continued efforts in promoting the health and safety of our Kansas students!
