Zella Davis and Rene Smith, former administrator/

teachers at Head Start, visited the center April 9.

Visitors help celebrate

Head Starts 50th year
The staff and children at
Atchison County Head Start
were thrilled to have two
of the first administrator/
teachers visit the center on
April 9, 2015 in celebration
of Head Starts 50th year.
Zella Davis and Rene
Smith talked about how
classes for Head Start started in the basement of one of
the buildings at the Tarkio
College. From there, the
center moved to several private homes, the Lutheran
Church, and then the Memorial Building. It was very
interesting to hear about
the changes Head Start has

made throughout the years.

The ladies were surprised
to see how much a typical day at Head Start has
changed from their days of
teaching. They both commented that students are
taught so much including
alphabet, numbers, colors,
shapes, how to be respectful
and responsible and how to
be part of a community.
The children were excited to interact with these
lovely ladies and warmed up
to them quickly. Mrs. Davis
and Mrs. Smith were accompanied by Evelyn Hord.

HB 1292 Foe

by Audrae Bates
What is HB 1292? This
is a bill sponsored by Rep.
Kurt Bahr from St. Louis,
Missouri, released on March
23, 2015, that would require
all the school districts in
Missouri with less than 350
students to be administratively consolidated. Missouri
has 39 districts and approximately 1/3 of those would
be consolidated if the bill
is passed, including Fairfax
High School.
This bill expands the role
of government and takes
away the local control. It
would also take away our locally elected administrative
school boards 1,200 elected school board positions

would disappear from our

state. Our pride, identity,
and even our rivalry would
be washed away.
The government shouldnt
force smaller school districts to become larger just
to meet the average daily
attendance or to exceed 350
students. Schools have their
own jurisdiction whether it
is a necessity to consolidate
or not. This would take the
locals voices away OUR
VOICES from the picture,
changing where tax dollars are spent in the local
community, and who gets a
say in the things we do as
a school. Do you support or

Senior Spotlight

by Haley Murry
This week in the Senior Spotlight is Miles Murry. Miles
is the son of Jimmy and Jody Murry, and the brother of
sophomore, Haley Murry. After graduation Miles will be attending Central Methodist University in Fayette, Missouri,
majoring in Criminal Justice. When asked why he wanted
to major in Criminal Justice Miles told me that he wanted
to help people. Some of Miles greatest achievements are
receiving All-District Linebacker his junior year, team MVP
junior year, All-District Offensive Linemen his senior year,
and he was also selected to play in the All-Star 8-Man Football game this summer. In Miles spare time he likes to hang
out with friends. Good luck Miles in the years to come!
