The two school days before Thanksgiving Break are always difficult ones to manage. There's not a lot of time to start new material and rarely do you end old material on a Tuesday with just a two day week. With all that in mind, USD 322 decided to try something different this year and do some real life/different types of learning activities. The school put on mini courses that included cooking Mexican food, Vet tech fundamentals, Cribbage and table and card games, Archery, the card game Pitch, GPS/drone technology, how to make cream pie and angel food cake, journalism/graphic design, sweets and treats, adult independence class, country dance, woodworking and basic car maintenance. It was a good experience for all and students came away with some new skills, knowledge, and maybe even life-long hobbies. Tomorrow it's back to school for the final stretch of the first semester!

The winter sports seasons are upon us and basketball is underway. The junior high teams are now four weeks into practice and preparing for their season openers Monday night, and the high school teams are now a week into their practices with their first games coming up on December 2nd. With that in mind, you can now order your Onaga basketball gear by following the link below. There is a wide range of items varying in price and colors. They are also not junior high or high school specific, nor are they specific to girls basketball or boys basketball. Meaning if you have children on multiple teams, you don't have to consider buying yourself a shirt to support each of the teams. One purchase will work for all four teams! With the supply chain issues our country is experiencing, please understand that turnaround won't be days, but more like weeks. With those issues in mind, the store will only be open for a week as the sooner it closes the sooner we can get your orders. So follow the link below, and get your orders in by next Friday, November 26th. GO BUFFALOES!!! https://www.bsnteamsports.com/shop/acMaWCqkKF

Community HealthCare System is conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment in partnership with Pottawatomie County Public Health and other local partners. County citizens are invited to share their thoughts through a brief, confidential survey. The online survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YBQYS6L. Anyone who wishes to receive a paper copy can request one by calling 785-889-5133 or by emailing info@chcsks.org. The deadline to participate is November 22. CHCS will use the survey results to help set priorities for programs and services. Helping four of our associates to become certified Mental Health First Aid instructors and supporting them in offering classes in our communities is one example of a program we have provided as a result of community feedback from a past assessment. We hope you will take time to share your thoughts on the survey and encourage colleagues, family, and friends to do the same so we hear from a variety of individuals.

Most people are aware that school lunches have been paid for by the government during a large part of the pandemic. However, most are not aware that the lunch fund of a school district can only grow so large before the district penalized. With those two main factors in consideration, USD 322 has used this opportunity to purchase, without taxpayer money, a walk-in freezer for the cafeteria. Serving over 300 people a day is no small feat and this has been a wish list item for a long, long time. It was delivered and set in place last week.

USD 322 celebrated Veteran's Day this morning with its annual program. Mr. Kufahl's senior U.S. Government class orchestrated the program and invited the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 8th grade classes to read poems at the event. Local veterans were in attendance, many of which posted the colors to begin the ceremony. As Government classes had done in the past, this year's seniors "spotlighted" several veterans who are graduates of Onaga High School throughout the program. First, they spotlighted Matt Myers, a 2008 graduate of OHS and United States Air Force veteran. Next, they told to story of Claire Mumaw. Claire was a 1940 graduate of OHS who was a veteran of World War II. Claire's life was taken in combat when his tank exploded on January 18, 1945 as he was fighting in the Battle of the Bulge in Belgium. He was just 22 years old. He is now buried at the Jenkins Cemetery in the ghost town of Vienna, located a few miles south of Onaga. Finally, the class told the stories of the Marten family and their tradition of military service. They discussed Friedrich, who was killed in combat during WWI, his brother Richard, and their nephews Ron, Kenny, and David. The senior class did an excellent job preparing the program and they, along with the rest of USD 322, would like to thank all of our service men and women worldwide for their contributions to this great nation.

The team is coached by Crystal Miller.
