LHS Alumni Association Updating Alumni Information

The LHS Alumni Association recently partnered with PCI (Publishing Concepts) to update its alumni contact information and produce a new alumni directory. PCI is located in Dallas, TX and Chesapeake, VA. They publish directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation. This project allows the LHS Alumni Association to receive important updates to its database so we know more about its alumni and how we can better serve them in the future.

Alumni should receive a postcard or email (based on last known data), which provides a phone number or link to call to update your information. You may provide, or keep private, any information you like.

At the end of the updating process, LHS alumni (only) will be able to purchase the directory. We are shooting for a launch of the new directory in the fall of 2018.

Please feel free to contact PCI customer service with any questions, at 1 (800) 982-1590, or locally, call Catey Edwards, Director of the Leavenworth Public Schools Education Foundation (sponsor organization of the LHS Alumni Association), at (913) 684-1400.

As always, "Once a Pioneer...always a Pioneer!"

Leavenworth Public Schools Education Foundation Video Contest Results

Each fall, elementary schools have participated in the Leavenworth Public Schools Education Foundation "Foundation Week Banner Contest". This has always been one of the kick-off activities for Foundation Week, the start of our Annual Fundraising Campaign. This year, we kicked it up a notch, and moved from traditional butcher paper, glue, and cutouts, to a live display of Pioneer Pride. Each school, both elementary and secondary, was invited to submit a video for competition as a way to showcase the partnership with the Foundation, and feature the great things happening inside its walls.

Several guidelines were provided for the competition, such as focusing on the "Inspire" theme of the Foundation year, including the word "Pioneer", and, including items such as a pencil, balloon, tape holder, an apple, and dance moves.

Videos were submitted and reviewed, and the Leavenworth Public Schools Education Foundation is excited to share the results of the competition!

Winner Elementary Category: Anthony Elementary School
Runner-up Elementary Category: Henry Leavenworth Elementary School

Winner Secondary Category: Richard Warren Middle School

Please enjoy ALL of the videos submitted by our amazing schools! The display of Pioneer Pride, educational "inspiration", teaching and learning, and friendship was incredible. The creativity was top notch, and all schools should be extremely proud of their submissions...they capture the wonderful work that takes place between staff, students, and the community each and every day.

The videos are housed on YouTube, in no particular order...simply highlight the link provided below, right click and link to "Go to https://..." Enjoy!
