The Minneapolis Grade School had a visitor April 7th, 8th and 11th. Happy Bear and her helper visited the kindergarten, first and second grade classrooms. The forty-five minute program taught kids the importance of being safe. Specifically, kids are taught to say no, walk away, and tell someone if someone touches them in an inappropriate way. Each student also received a take-home packet to share with their families. The “Happy Bear” program is sponsored by CAPS (Child Advocacy and Parenting Services, Inc. of Salina). Mrs. Sanders class interacted with Happy Bear and Mrs. Price.
Minneapolis Grade School students in 3rd - 6th grades are encouraged each year to read books that have been nominated for the William Allen White Award. On April 13, 2016, MGS library staff recognized students who had read at least 2 books from one of two lists of nominated titles and passed a test on the books they read. Students were awarded a ribbon and had a party to celebrate their excellent reading. These students then voted on their favorite book from each list of titles from which they read.
Jeremiah Young received a book bag for being the top reader of 2015-16, having read thirteen titles on the William Allen White book lists. "It is by far the largest group of readers I've had since I've been in Minneapolis," said Mrs. Baker. "They really seemed to enjoy the books this year and told one another about them to encourage even more reading." Super job MGS students.

The annual MJH St. Patrick's Dance was held Thursday, March 24, in the MJSHS Gymnasium. Prior to the dance, the Scott Wooten citizenship award was presented to one 8th grade girl and one 8th grade boy. The MJH faculty initially selected candidates who met the criteria for the award, then the MJH students voted for the 3 female and 3 male finalists. The memorial award is based on citizenship, leadership, respect for elders, respect for peers, respect for property, politeness, school spirit, determination, and perseverance.
This year's finalists were: Nicki Borman, Zoie Shupe, Reagan Smith, Trevor Haley, Derek Freel, Jonah Ausherman. The 2016 winners were Zoie Shupe and Trevor Haley!
Next on the schedule was the parent-child dance. After all parents cleared the gym, the students enjoyed dancing to music provided by MJH Math Instructor, Jerid Arnold.
