USD 464 employees kicked off back-to-school week this morning with an all-staff breakfast, hosted by First State Bank & Trust, following by an opening convocation in the Tonganoxie Performing Arts Center. First State Bank & Trust presented a check to the district reflecting five cents for each time our customers swiped their Chieftain debit cards in the last year. Since August 2021, Chieftain cards were swiped 496,564 times, making this year’s donation a whopping $24,828.20! That’s over $1,000 more than last year, and it brings the bank’s total donations to USD 464 to over $160,000 since this program began. We appreciate our partnership with First State Bank & Trust and thank them for their continued support of USD 464!
