Busy Week At Banner County School As Year Nears An End

Banner County

Good morning, and happy May! I don't know about you, but I can not believe it is May already, I think I am about a month behind.

Everyone is talking about school getting out, graduations and summer. About time for all of that, yet somehow I feel like it should be the 1st of April.

One sure sign of the end of the year at the school house is the annual Spring concert. The pre-K through 12th grades will perform for you this Thursday, May 4th at 6 p.m.

Art projects will be on display to view either before or after the concert also. The following day there will be a late start for students as they observe "Teacher Appreciation Day."

There will also be high school track that day at Leyton beginning at 9 a.m.

Saturday the 6th of May is your opportunity to have breakfast with Superintendent Evelyn Browne. Please call the school for more information at 308-436-5262.
