CH Teacher State Finalist for Presidential Mathematics Honor A Central Heights Elementary School teacher was named a 2018 state finalist for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching during a special ceremony Monday at Exploration Place in Wichita, a Kansas State Department of Education official said. Sarah Rand was one of three finalists for mathematics. The other finalists are Angela Knapp, Pray-Woodman Elementary School, Maize, and Marcia Mueller, Bentley Primary School, Halstead. The state finalists for science are Monica Dreiling, Lincoln Elementary School, Hays USD 489; Betsy Lawrence, Eudora Middle School, Eudora USD 491; and Zerrin Oelze, McLean Science/Technology Magnet, Wichita USD 259. Elementary and secondary educators are recognized in alternating years. This year, elementary educators are being recognized. Kansas had 12 mathematics nominees and 13 science nominees. Nicky Harris, Ottawa Middle School, was a nominee for the award. The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching are the nation’s highest honor for mathematics and science teaching, an education official said. They are presented to educators who show a high degree of knowledge, innovation, skill and leadership. Each of the state finalists received a $500 cash award and advance to compete for a national finalist title. Two educators from each state, one in the area of mathematics and one in science, may be named national finalists. Each of the national finalists will receive a $10,000 award. The awards ceremony took place in conjunction with the Kansas Excellence in Math and Science Teaching Conference, a two-day event that took place Monday and Tuesday at Newman University in Wichita. More than 260 science and math educators from across Kansas attended the conference, which featured math and science presentations and workshops delivered by leading Kansas educators. The conference was sponsored by Westar Energy and Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corporation.

A copy of this book will be available in our middle school library. We are very proud of Kaydance and her success. Eclipse Day by Kaydance Bond We came out from fifth hour, Middle school, high school, and all Middle school went towards the track By the fields where they play baseball We put on our glasses That blocked out the sun The teachers kept saying “Don’t take them off!” And for good reason The sixth grade went to the batting cages And the 7th grade went to the football field While we eighth graders were on the sidewalk Where we talked and laughed and revealed Everybody was eager to see the eclipse They kept on checking the sky But all they could see was the beginning Before some annoying clouds flew by Soon after it got darker We all knew what was happening The moon was in front of the sun But there was still clouds passing We checked more and more We all wanted to see What this wonderful experience Would really be After a while it got lighter And we all missed it Just because of some clouds That should have just split We got disappointed But it’s okay We saw the beginning And it was still a great day

Dear Parents/Patrons: As you know we are hosting a varsity track meet at Central Heights this Thursday. In past year we’ve always had high school students assist in running off our field events (high jump, long jump, triple, jump, shot put, javelin and discus). We’ve also had them be hurdle hustlers (move and adjust the hurdles depending on the races being run. For whatever reason(s) our students are not offering to help out as in years past. Therefore we are in DESPERATE need of help for the track meet on Thursday! The middle school coaches are trying to round up middle school students who might be able to help but if any of you would be willing to help out it would be greatly appreciated. I do not want to keep any of you from watching your child perform at their event(s). If you have a child who is running an event you would be able to go and watch him/her run. However if you have a child that is in a field event I could make sure you would work that event! The field events begin at 3PM so we would need helpers here at 2:45 if at all possible. If you are able to help please contact me via email (dnorth@usd288.org) or text me at 785-550-7533.

Good morning Viking family. Yesterday Wednesday March 14 was one of my worst days i have ever experienced. Things simply did not go well, and i want to begin today by explaining part of what happened. I will begin with the first call you received from me. I wanted to let evryone know there was a threat, but we didn’t want details out while the officers were investigating, so I sent out the first call. This morning the situation is different. Interviews have been completed and the actual situation has been disclosed to many people, so I can reveal the threat and not interfere with the investigation. A message was written on the stall of the boys bathroom in the high school circle stating someone was going to shoot up the school the first day back from break. (That is not an exact quote, but that is the general idea.) The sheriff’s officers interviewed several people last evening and were still working on that when I tried to send out the second call. That second call was a disastor and i apologize for it. Technology is great when it works well and frustrating when it doesn’t! The system would not send out my recorded message for some reason. We were having our regular monthly board meeting and I tried to send the call at approximately 10:00 with my cell phone. A short time later we realized that none of us had received the call! From then on it was a mess trying to find a way to send out the call. I am sorry we had to use the electronic robo call voice, but that was all that would work. During the board meeting we experienced some very tense moments when a staff member became ill and we called the ambulance. (I would like to express a very special thank you to those of you with medical skills that helped handle that situation. You were fantastic.) That situation was quite emotional and changed our focus on things. Getting reports from the investigating officers and sending out the folliw up call were not our priority during that episode That brings us today. I am posting this message quite early and HOPE to send out a phone call around 6:30 to everyone explaining this same imformation. The plan is to have law enforcement at school today and on the first day back from Spring Break. I didn’treceive a call last night saying we had a confession or a suspect so i can understand there is a reluctance to send students to school today. None the less, we will be open and having school today. Abssences will be excused, but I hope to see students attending and teachers teaching. In short, I hope we have a great day at school today at Central Heights. Brian Spencer

Good evening, I have been planning an update for everyone concerning the water, but I have held off waiting to assess the weather situation. It is time for a dual purpose message. First I will address the weather. Very cold temperatures with miserable winds tomorrow are a concern. Additionally, there are still some heating units at the school that haven’t been repaired following the broken pipes. Those two items are bad enough, but some very icy roads in the district have led me to join all the other schools in the area and cancel school for tomorrow, Tuesday, January 16. The topic of the water continues to vex us. We have made some upgrades to the system, and we continue to monitor the water in hopes those changes and flushing will lead to consistent good test results. It appears it may be some time before the water is undoubtedly clear of elevated copper levels. We will continue to use bottled water for drinking until then. Again, no school tomorrow, and we are still having to drink bottled water. Stay warm, and we will hopefully see you Wednesday.

We have gotten through the first two days back from the break amazingly well. We seem to consume approximately 800 bottles of water per day here at Central Heights. That may be a trivia questions years from now, so make note of it. I am sending out this update at 4:30 on Tuesday not only to share about the water situation but also to remind all of you it is Pack the House Night, and PTA is having their Chili Feed and Silent Auction Fund Raiser. If you haven't made other arrangements come on out to the games against West Franklin this evening. (Don't worry, we have good water for you to drink while you are here.) We are hoping for a big crowd to help us flush the pipes this evening. After the games this evening, we will let the system set idle overnight, and then collect samples tomorrow morning prior to the students arriving. Hopefully the test results will be good and we will be back to regular operations by the end of the week. I greatly appreciate everyone's patience and support with this situation. A special thank you to Walmart Distribution for donating a pallet of gallon jugs of water, and to Orschelens's for giving us a discount and making Pick-Up easy on the 20 ounce bottles. Again, it is Pack the House Night vs. the West Franklin Falcons, come out and and enjoy the Viking atmosphere.

Unfortunately the water system did not get the “All Clear” I had hoped for following the testing on Saturday. We will continue to flush the system and search for the source of the elevated copper levels. However, We will have school tomorrow as scheduled. We will provide bottled water for drinking and consumption. Students don’t need to bring their own bottles of water, but they may if they want. Copper is on the list of secondary drinking water contaminants. It is not a toxic contaminant, but it can cause gastrointestinal problems. Additional testing has ruled out any other contamination and confirmed that we are dealing with a corrosion issue which is impacting the copper waterlines. We are working diligently with several agencies and experts. The levels are declining but remain elevated. We do feel that we are making progress on the solution but remain cautious. We can easily avoid drinking the water for a few days while the system is continuously flushed by non-drinking usage. Again, we are having School and all activities as scheduled tomorrow, Monday, January 8, 2018. We will provide alternative sources for consumption and students may bring their own water battles if they choose. Thank you for your patience as we continue to make safety a priority.

We have taken action to mitigate the copper levels in the water. These actions have led to good testing results, but we must continue to monitor and assess the situation. We must conduct and pass one more round of testing for final approval from KDHE to allow full use and occupancy of the building. The samples for this testing must be collected at least 8 hours after the system has been flushed. We also have to test several locations, and any activity in the system anywhere can invalidate the testing process. With that in mind, we are asking that everyone please stay out of the buildings over the weekend. There will be no Rec. Games on Saturday. If any teachers or employees have to come to the building for something please don't use any water. It is imperative that those doing the collections be allowed to draw samples that meet the requirements during the day on Saturday. I am planning on having school as scheduled on Monday. If for some reason the testing doesn't go as I anticipate, I will send a message out Sunday evening with details and instructions concerning school on Monday. If all goes as I anticipate, you won't hear from me, and we will have school on Monday. Have a great weekend.

I’m truly proud of how far these students have progressed! The 5th grade band portion should not last longer than 15 minutes and then they are welcome to leave. I would like to encourage everyone to stay and listen to the other bands but I also know this is a busy time of year.

Dear Second - Fifth Grade Parents, We, the Central Heights Boys Basketball team, would like to give your son or daughter the opportunity to be selected as a basketball manager for a home varsity basketball game during the 2017-18 season. I am asking for parent permission in advance of the selection process to avoid announcing a student who is not able to participate. The selection criteria would be based on positive behavior, academics, character, and most of all, PRIDE. Our CHES classroom teachers will choose one boy and one girl from each class, grades 2nd-5th for the week. I will select our winners the Friday before the week of our home varsity games. I will select one boy and one girl for each game that following week. Parents will be contacted by phone and given details of the student’s duties for the evening. The student will be under my supervision during the boy’s varsity game. If your son or daughter are selected, they will get a team warm-up shirt and be recognized during halftime of the boy’s varsity basketball game. I believe your student will love the experience of being a part of our team, and hopefully become a basketball player themselves! Head High School Boys Basketball Coach Tyler Oestreicher Permission slips went home Nov. 21 and need to be returned by Tuesday, November 28.

No words can say how proud I am of these boys. They work their tails off almost every day of the week and when it's time to compete, they rise up to the challenge. The stakes could not have been any higher the past two weekends, but they kept finding ways to push themselves further than they (and their competition) probably ever though was possible. Of the seven runners on this State Runner-up squad, six of them ran their personal best on one of the hardest courses in Kansas. It should also be said that this group won Central Heights' first Boys Cross Country Regional Title since 1991 and equaled that team's Runner-up finish. 26 years has been a long wait, but for me, that wait makes this even more special. Merely saying 'thank you' or that we will miss seniors Kyle, Zack, Matthew and Coyd would be doing them a disservice; each of them brought something so important or unique to the program that they simply cannot be replaced. Caleb, Bryce, Tyler and Alex will need to step up as leaders while Jarod and the rest of the younger runners need to continue to grow. As the saying goes at Central Heights - Today is great day to be a Viking! Individual Statistics: 12th - Tyler Stevenson - 17:10 **individual medalist 20th - Kyle Cardin - 17:24 **individual medalist 26th - Alex Cannady - 17:48 33rd - Caleb Meyer - 17:54 56th - Jarod Crawford - 18:27 70th - Bryce Sommer - 18:52 95th - Zackrey Grabbe - 20:01 Photo (left to right) (back row): Mason McCurry, Jarod Crawford, Caleb Meyer, Alex Cannady, Bryce Sommer, Luke Cotter (front row): Head Coach Troy Prosser, Matthew Ashwill, Tyler Stevenson, Kyle Cardin, Zackrey Grabbe, Assistant Coach Tommi Compton Troy Prosser Central Heights Head Cross Country

Having the full compliment of runners all in the same race for the first time this season couldn't have come at a better time. We have overcome a lot of adversity this year, but when it counted the most, these boys made a huge commitment to bring a title back to Central Heights! I'm genuinely pleased with they way they came together this last week. From the 6th graders up to the seniors, this is something that I hope we can continue to build on. Zack Grabbe, Kyle Cardin and Bryce Sommer had highly important roles today and displayed exceptional leadership this season. Having Jarod Crawford running a huge PR as a freshman as well as Tyler Stevenson, Caleb Meyer and Alex Cannady all turning in some of their best performances of the season were incredible to watch. Six runners in the top 19 usually brings considerable rewards and, on this occasion, these kids have earned another week together on the course headed to State! Boys team: 1st Individual results: 4th - Tyler Stevenson - 17:41 6th - Alex Cannady - 18:27 7th - Kyle Cardin - 18:32 8th - Caleb Meyer - 18:34 14th - Jarod Crawford - 18:54 19th - Bryce Sommer - 19:20 50th - Zackery Grabbe - 20:24 Full results from Black Squirrel Timing can be found at the following link: http://blacksquirrelresults.com/2017/XC/CentralHeightsRegXC.pdf

Having five runners in the top 10 of the JV race as well also helps give us a good amount of confidence for the future. While the Varsity boys finished 3rd in the league for the second year in a row, we were without our top runner this season and are still trying to find the right combination as we head into the biggest meet of the season. We will be hosting a 3A Regional meet next Saturday which will once again include the top three teams from our League. The competition, however, will be even higher with the addition of some other solid programs so we must bring our best in order to keep the season going. Varsity Boys 5K 5th - Alex Cannady - 18:30 (medalist) 6th - Kyle Cardin - 18:31 (medalist) 14th - Bryce Sommer - 19:47 (medalist) 17th - Caleb Meyer - 19:55 30th - Zack Grabbe - 20:59 32nd - Jarod Crawford - 21:00 37th - David Craft 21:47 Varsity Boys Team Place: 3rd Middle School Girls 2 Mile (6th, 7th, 8th grade combined) 2nd - Lily Meyer - 13:41 (medalist) 5th - Taryn Compton - 14:02 (medalist) 6th - Emma Cubit - 14:50 (medalist) 26th - Chloe LaDuke - 18:27 35th - Lily Roll - 21:23 Middle School Girls Team Place: 1st Middle School Boys 2 Mile (6th, 7th, 8th grade combined) 6th - Max Cannady - 13:56 (medalist) 8th - Jessy Stalford - 14:47 Junior Varsity Boys 5K 1st - Mason McCurry - 20:37 2nd - Luke Cotter - 20:53 7th - Matthew Ashwill - 21:43 8th - Orvel Broce - 21:43 28th - Landen Compton - 26:14 29th - Ryder Roll - 27:03 32nd - Coyd Garnder - 32:34 Junior Varsity Girls 5K 5th - Mikaiah Wilson - 32:33 -- Troy Prosser Central Heights Head Cross Country

Central Heights cross country at Pleasanton: First, I would like to give recognition to Lily Meyer and Taryn Compton for finishing 1st and 2nd in the 8th grade 2 Mile for the 3rd week in a row. They are both on a really good roll right now heading into League this coming Thursday as well as Emma Cubit who finished 3rd in the 7th grade 2 Mile as a 6th grader. They show a lot of heart and their hard work keeps paying off. On the high school boys side, the both the JV and varsity groups are doing a nice job improving each week as well. I am pleased that we were only a few points behind one of the best teams in 4A and the #1 ranked team in 2A. The competition won't get any easier next week at the Flint Hills League meet, but it will be a good test to see what we still need to work on. 8th Grade Girls 1st - Lily Meyer - 13:06 (medalist) 2nd - Taryn Compton - 13:49 (medalist) 7th - Lily Roll - 19:57 7th Grade Girls 3rd - Emma Cubit - 14:04 (medalist) 15th - Chloe LaDuke - 17:04 7th Grade Boys 7th - Max Cannady - 14:26 10th - Jessy Stalford - 14:40 JV Boys 1st - Alex Cannady - 18:36 (medalist) 4th - Orvel Broce - 20:41 (medalist) 7th - Luke Cotter - 20:50 11th - Matthew Ashwill - 21:14 14th - Mason McCurry - 21:20 34th - Landen Compton 24:19 40th - Ryder Roll - 26:41 Varsity Boys 5th - Tyler Stevenson - 17:38 (medalist) 8th - Kyle Cardin - 18:03 (medalist) 17th - Bryce Sommer - 19:09 18th - Caleb Meyer - 19:10 19th - Jarod Crawford - 19:16 39th - Zack Grabbe - 20:07 41st - David Craft - 20:15-- Troy Prosser Central Heights Head Cross Country
