It's Madrigal Feaste time!
The twelfth annual Madrigal Feaste is coming up on Friday, December 6th and Saturday, December 7th at the Middle School Commons Area. Doors open at 6:00pm each evening, with the processional beginning at 6:30.
The evening will feature the traditional holiday meal of wassail, barley soup, cracked wheat bread with butter, ham steak, roasted potatoes, green beans, spiced apple rings, and a dessert tart. This year’s theme is “a very twisted version of Robin Hood”, so dress for the period and join in the interactive entertainment and competitions! Servers, ushers, and members of the Royal Court are all students in the TMS and THS Vocal Music Departments. After the meal and the revelry, a concert will be provided by the eighth grade choir, the concert choir, and the Chieftain Singers.
Tickets are $15 each. (Feel free to contribute more — all proceeds benefit the Tonganoxie Vocal Music Department). We strongly suggest you purchase tickets in advance, as the shows have sold out the past several years.
The district publishes two different types of calendar each year:
An academic calendar, approved by the Board of Education, listing first and last class days of each semester, parent-teacher conferences, holidays, etc.
2013-2014 Academic Year Calendar - 1 page
A 16-page Athletics and Activities Calendar - This calendar is designed primarily for parents and patrons, contains the school-year schedule as well as athletic events, school activities, meetings, and a variety of other information.
Printed copies of these calendars are available at the District Administrative Center and in the school buildings.
This online calendar is updated as changes occur; it will always be more accurate than the printed version.
Kaw Valley League/RSchoolToday High School Events Calendar - this subscription service will allow district patrons to view, search, filter and print a variety of calendars for high school events and activities. The calendar may also be accessed by going to www.kawvalleyleague.org then clicking Tonganoxie at the right side of the page.
Here are the bell schedules for the current school year:
At the March 11 meeting of the Board of Education, HTK Architects presented a PowerPoint with preliminary information on the elementary construction project. The presentation includes an initial budget, a variety of architectural drawings, and interior designs, among other things.
Since we are still very early in the project this information is preliminary at best. The designs will no doubt be updated over time as various factors affect the project.
At their September '12 meeting, the Board of Education approved new policies and procedures for requesting district facilities.
A Facility Use Packet has been developed to help patrons with the proper forms, contact information, and billing procedures.
If you currently use, or plan to use, district facilities, please take a look at the packet to help insure that the proper procedures are being followed. Feel free to print the packet so all the information is readily available.
To reserve a district facility:
- Call or visit the scheduling coordinator of the facility you wish to request. For TES, call Carlie Puhr at 913-845-2290. For TMS, call Mark Altman at 845-2627. For THS, (except the Chieftain Room) call Brent Smith at 845-3042. For the Chieftain Room, call Julie Bernard at 845-2654. They will be able to tell you if the facility is available when you need it.
- Once you have determined that the facility is available, fill out the Facility Request form and get a signature from the scheduling coordinator or administrator at the appropriate building.
- Send the completed and signed form, and insurance waiver if required, to Bill Seymour at the District Administrative Center. Fees will be assessed and you will be contacted about payment to secure the facility.
In the event that we have weather that would require an early dismissal or school cancellation, we will send a School Messenger notification using the contact information in your student's file. This website will offer up-to-date information, and we will also notify the following media:
