Cardinal Families,


As we wind the school year down at USD #491, it is certainly a time for Celebration! One hundred forty-five Seniors will walk across the stage on May 14th, taking the 1st steps into their adult lives. This accomplishment would not be possible without parents, countless teachers, counselors, custodians, bus drivers, secretaries, Para’s, and food service professionals. Each member of the USD #491 family and the community can share in these graduates’ accomplishments! It takes a village to raise a child, and Eudora is a wonderful community for our students. There have been numerous achievements in the classroom and on the activity fields at USD #491 this school year. I am proud to share in our students’ achievements as a community and school family.


This upcoming week, our country celebrates Teacher and Staff Appreciation throughout the nation. As we emerge from this global pandemic, we have observed the vital role that teachers and staff play in our students’ lives each day. Schools serve as more than just a place to gain knowledge. They also provide social-emotional opportunities and a place to build amazing relationships that help our students grow and develop the lifelong skills that will provide opportunities as young adults and productive citizens. Our teachers and staff have worked hard to create a new model of learning. They have worked passionately to continue important relationships with students and their families to provide a sense of stability and love in this new and challenging situation. The Faculty and Staff are the heart and soul of USD #491, and they are awesome! Please take a minute to thank teachers and staff members next week for the role they play in our students’ lives!


We feel blessed to work in a community that is proud of its past yet so excited for its future. Our students are the best advertisement for our schools and communities. With your help, we can continue to serve our students and support their quest for success. Please continue to help USD #491 build on the success of the past to ensure a bright future for all of our students.


Go Cards!
