Wamego USD 320 CELEBRATES OUR SCHOOL BOARD LEADERS THIS JANUARY
January is School Board Recognition Month, and Wamego USD 320 joins other public schools across our state to say thank you to these public servants who are leading success in our community.
These extraordinary seven individuals provide the leadership and vision to make great things happen in our schools. They volunteer countless hours by attending meetings, reading reports, and discussing ideas. They also participate in workshops and seminars so that they can stay on top of education issues and trends. They provide an invaluable service to our community.
Our school board members develop policies and make tough decisions that help shape the future of our education system. They have responsibility and oversight for an annual budget of $29 million, 1560 students, 375 employees, and 4 school buildings.
Please join me in thanking our board members we are so fortunate that they are willing to sacrifice their time and talents to advocate for our community and our schools. Their job is sometimes challenging and they do not often hear words of encouragement and appreciation.
The men and women serving Wamego USD 320 are-
District 1- Michelle Johnson, 5th year of service
District 2- Ryan Hargitt, Vice President, 4th year of service
District 3- Nicolette Zeigler, 4th year of service

Thank you all. We greatly appreciate your service and commitment to our students, staff, and community.
USD320 along with several community partners will be hosting a Family Resource night on January 24th from 5-7pm at the First United Methodist Church in Wamego. This will be an opportunity for families to come and visit with different service providers in the area including Pawnee Mental Health, 3 Rivers, Community Health Ministry, Infant Toddler and Parents as Teachers, as well as representatives from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. There will be information on KanCare and other insurance options for families as well as the opportunity to sign up for insurance that night with the help of a representative. If your child is currently uninsured, this is the opportunity to get them insurance! All children in the state of Kansas qualify.
There will be a meal provided as well as child care, so parents can talk to the different resources freely and privately. All are welcome from the community! Please feel free to share with others who would benefit from any of these resources.
