Newton, Kan.— The Newton Ag Career Academy and Newton High School are teaming up with Numana to feed hungry people across the globe. Students will pack 10,000 meals to send to Nicaragua, El Salvador or Honduras on November 30, 2018. The event is partnered with Convoy of Hope, and food will be distributed to the country with the greatest need at that time. Even though the pack day is still months away, the work has already begun. The Ag Career Academy is raising the $3,000 that will cover the cost of the meals. If you are interested, you can go here http://bit.ly/NHSNumana to donate.

 

This project aligns with the Ag Career Academy’s theme of sustainability. Instructors will connect the service project to the Ag Career Academy courses of science, literature and history. The students will be given as much responsibility as possible such as packing the meals, teaching other volunteers how to pack the meals, marketing the event and running their tables during the event among other duties.

 

“I think it will be valuable for our students to see a process like this from start to finish,” Elizabeth Gunn, Ag Career Academy history teacher, said. “Seeing what’s going on outside of the United States. Why are these folks in need of meals? What’s been going on there? There are so many different opportunities to learn from this opposed to just showing up, packing meals and leaving.”

 

Right now, organizers are asking for donations to get the $3,000 for the meals. They will also need volunteers to help on packing day on November 30, 2018. If anyone is interested in volunteering, he or she may contact Melinda Rangel, assistant principal.

Providing a safe, secure learning environment for students is one of our highest priorities.  This is why USD 373 has implemented the use of ALICE (i.e. alert, lockdown, inform, counter and evacuate).  ALICE training has become a requirement of staff who are employed by USD 373. Our USD 373 staff have been trained to understand that ALICE is not a step-by-step response, but rather a set of options to utilize in the event of a violent intruder. 

 

You can read more about ALICE by going to www.alicetraining.com.

 

In July 2018, the State of Kansas/State Fire Marshall modified the number of Fire, Tornado, and Crisis drills that schools will need to have throughout the school year.  (four Fire, three Tornado, nine Crisis).  Students and staff will be trained periodically throughout the school year on various Crisis protocols.  Per safety concerns with the new State regulations, Emergency Preparedness Drill notification may only be sent out five minutes prior to these drills/events taking place.

All required/recommended vaccines can reduce the disease burden in school-aged children, thus helping to assure that students will be in school ready to learn. Completely immunized school-aged children are vital in protecting other more vulnerable populations from the devastating effects of the diseases that immunizations can prevent. Proof of receiving the immunizations must be provided to the school prior to attending the first day of school.

 Kansas law requires that all students, eight and under, who are enrolling in a Kansas school for the first time present health assessment information. The assessment needs to have been conducted within the last 12 months before school entry.

Immunization requirements and an assessment form are available at usd373-ks.schoolloop.com/immunization-requirements.

As an alternative to the above requirements a pupil shall present: (1) An annual written statement signed by a licensed physician stating the physical condition of the child to be such that the tests or inoculations would seriously endanger the life or health of the child, or (2) A written statement signed by one parent or guardian that the child is an adherent of a religious denomination whose religious teachings are opposed to such tests or inoculations.

Immunizations and health assessments are available at the Harvey County Health Department by appointment throughout the year. Appointments can be made by calling 283-1637. Upon request, services will be offered on a sliding fee schedule based on income and number of persons in the family.

Students in the Welding Technology program have a new piece of equipment to help them complete their program. A new welding camera has been installed that will record a student welding and allow for playback. The playback helps students see where they need to improve and correct welding techniques.
