WMS Offers Additional Yearbooks

It looks like there was a high demand for 2016-2017 Yearbooks. I would like to see if there is still some interest out there for additional yearbooks and see if we need to reorder another round for sale.

This reorder will be a prepay situation as we need to make sure that we have them all sold before we order additional yearbooks.

Here is the link for the reorder form:

MK Burnett Selected as PCSD#1 School Board Member

Mrs. Burnett (MK), was selected as PCSD#1 newest board member and was sworn in on Monday, June 12th, at the Board Work Session.  Mrs. Burnett will be filling the vacancy for out-going board member Doug Wiggins.  Her term will be June 1, 2017 to December 1, 2018.  A bio of Mrs. Burnett is provided below:

My name is Merry Kathryn Burnett. Most people know me as "MK." I am honored to have been selected to serve as a member of Platte County School District #1's School Board. I was born and raised in North Carolina before attending college in Wisconsin where I earned a B.S. degree in Communications with an emphasis in Media Consultation. My five children and I were fortunate to move to Wheatland in 2005, and the oldest four have now graduated from WHS. My husband, Steve, is a lifelong resident of Wheatland, where we still enjoy operating a small cattle operation. In addition, we own a small business in Douglas. I feel that all of these experiences give me a unique perspective to offer to PCSD#1. I am a strong believer in the power of education and that it "takes a village" to educate effectively. I look forward to working with people throughout our community in order for our district to reach the PEAK.
