District K-3, Special Education, and Title 1 Reading teachers participated in LETRS training today!

A huge thank you to Gambino's Pizza for their donation of school supplies! On Monday, owners Jamie and Ryan Boden delivered multiple boxes and bags of supplies to Superintendent Loren Feldkamp and Assistant Superintendent Tonya Phillips. We appreciate you!
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!
One week away! Come eat a hot dog, enjoy performances from the Marching Chieftains, Chieftain Stars and Chieftain and Warrior Cheer teams, meet all of our fall sports athletes, and help us recognize the 2021-22 TES Braves Students of the Month!
