Superintendent Pam Stranathan and USD 231 recognize the disappointment faced by our seniors and their families over the many special events canceled this Spring due to COVID-19.
As a token of appreciation and recognition for the class of 2020, Mrs. Stranathan personally reached out to PEC sports, a locally owned business, and is partnering with them to provide every senior a personalized yard sign that will include a picture and graduation year. The cost of the yard signs will be covered by the school district.
Seniors are able to personalize the yard sign by reaching out directly to PEC sports no later than Friday, April 10, via email Please include the following in the email:
- Subject line – Senior Name and GEHS
Ex: Joe Smith GEHS
- Attach a senior picture you would like used on the yard sign. (make sure you have the copyright permission to use photo). This photo should be of a high enough resolution that it will be print-ready. A downloaded photo from Facebook or other similar site will not be sufficient.
- Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- For assistance email or call 913-884-3379
- If you have questions or need assistance please email PEC sports.
If no email is sent, PEC sports will use the senior picture from the yearbook for the sign. Yard signs will be available for pick up along with cap and gown items on April 21st. More details to come.
Please know the district will continue to plan for events as allowed by the state and local health department; however, we fully understand these types of activities will never replace rites of passage such as prom, graduation, and many others.
USD 231 is very proud of each and every one of our seniors!
