Annual Water Testing Notification

The EPA now requires schools to annually test for lead and post notices with the results. As part of the annual lead testing requirement by the EPA, we have posted a notice in the school news section of the high school and middle school websites to make our school community aware of the results. I want to emphasize that none of the results came back in the EPA’s actionable range. However, the district has elected to voluntarily take some preventative measures not required by the EPA where lead was detected. Those measures are outlined in the letter posted to the school website. As always, the safety of our students is our top priority. Please contact the board office if you have any questions or concerns.

Shawnee's art-biology display at the Springfield Museum of Art. is a culminating display from the cell and microorganism project that Mrs. Meeks, Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Housh collaborated on this fall. As a pilot project, the art students responded very well to the cross-disciplinary concepts.

Attached are two photos of the display at the museum. We want to offer our congratulations! to students who had their work selected (they also received guest passes to the museum). Cell inspired clay sculptures from the ceramics class are scheduled to go in next week after they are fired.
