At their March meeting, the Board of Education approved academic calendars for the next two school years, giving staff and patrons the ability to plan far into the future.
Lots of folks look forward to finding the heavy duty trash bags that are often sold by THS or TMS groups as a fundraiser. This semester the bags will be offered for sale by the High School Marching Band, just in time for spring cleaning!
The order form is available now, and the deadline is Wednesday, March 26th. Please return the completed form and payment to the High School East office. Bags will be available for pickup on April 10 and 11. If you have questions feel free to contact Band Director Charles VanMiddlesworth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2013-14 Yearbook staff would like parents of seniors to know about the opportunity to submit a baby picture (taken when they were younger than 2 years old) as well as a senior portrait of their choosing, to be published in this year's yearbook. Parents can also add a congratulatory message or words of wisdom if they choose.
To take advantage of this opportunity, fill out the linked form and return it to the high school by March 8 to receive the early bird price of $30 ($5 off!). Pictures and forms turned in between March 9 and April 8 will be $35. Due to the publication deadline, no pictures can be accepted after April 8.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact yearbook sponsor David Walker at email@example.com.

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 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:
