This past Saturday 7th/8th grade band students traveled to Mulvane High School to represent the Prairie Hills Band in the Patriot League Honor Band. These musicians did a wonderful job and were able to play some great literature with students from other schools!

Today we had the honor of officially dedicating “Jory Konrade Field” at Prairie Hills Middle School. Mr. Konrade was an amazing educator, coach, and person. He left a special mark on the entire Buhler Schools community. The quote from the sign is something that Mr. Konrade told his team and students often and is so important to remember no matter what challenges come our way. Jory’s immediate family and extended family and friends were able to attend the dedication as pictured below.

Yesterday we had the privilege of notifying two teachers that they have been nominated for the Kansas Horizon Award. Each year the Kansas State Department of Education recognizes exceptional first years of teaching through this award. To be eligible for the award, teachers must have successfully completed their first year of teaching the year prior and have performed in such a way as to distinguish themselves as outstanding. Nominees for Buhler this year are Mrs. Alexis Comley, 6th-8th grade vocal music and choir teacher at Prairie Hills Middle School, and Ms. Ashley Sides, 6th grade science and STEAM teacher at Prairie Hills Middle School. Both are extremely deserving of this nomination and now will complete the application and essays required to be considered one of the top 32 2nd year teachers in the state. 8 winners from 4 Kansas regions will be announced later this school year. Congratulations and good luck Mrs. Comley and Ms. Sides! #Bexceptional #CommittedtoExcellence
