More from the league schools! South Central 💙 thank you! South Central Schools would like to express their condolences to the South Gray school and community. Our thoughts are with you.
This video was made and sent by SPIAA league schools. The band playing is our very own! I am attaching some other pictures that have been sent to me. ❤️🙏 https://youtu.be/PLLhJBjOHPI
We would like to invite any South Gray pep band alumni to join in playing the Rebel fight song at the end of Mr. Mac’s celebration of life. Please contact the high school office (620-846-2281) or Mrs. Watkins (620-846-0823) if you have any questions. Otherwise you may bring your instrument and leave it in the utility room on the west end of the gym. Sheet music will be available.
I have been trying to gather my thoughts to find the fitting words to address the hurt, the heartbreak, the emptiness we are feeling at South Gray. Yet, I continue to be at a loss for words to describe the trauma our schools and communities are dealing with. Words fail to express my deep sorrow to the McMillan and Applegate families. Not only has South Gray lost two of its best educators so has the State of Kansas. In my 36 years as an educator I have never had a tougher last four days. Having to inform the student body two consecutive school days that we have lost two amazing teachers has been by far the most difficult action I have ever addressed. The hurt is even greater when the spouses of both teachers are employed at our school as well. Mr. Mac was a really good personal friend as well as a colleague. My hunting buddy! If you have never heard the South Gray Pep Band you are missing out. I can not recall how many letters, emails, personal communications I have received from strangers complementing him and his Rebel Band. They have always been, and will continue to be, one of the best bands in Kansas. His musicians and singers won many league and state awards Not only was he an amazing band / music instructor, he was also a great track and cross country coach. His track teams won some state championships and he consistently had state placers in Cross Country. His passion and love for South Gray was always evident. Mrs Applegate has been a staple at South Gray long before I arrived. Mindy was my go to when I needed information pertaining to curriculum, accreditation, interpreting student data, mentoring, etc…….She was the most intelligent school personnel I have ever had the privilege of working with. Sometimes way too smart for me to comprehend what she was trying to get me to learn!! Being married to a coach can be a tough gig but she cherished that role. She was the basketball boys team mom for over 30 years and they loved her for how she cared about them. I ask that you pray for Robin and Coach Mac’s family, for Coach Applegate, Gabe, Eli, Brooke, and the Applegate family, the students and staff of South Gray Schools, and the communities of Montezuma and Copeland. We need the support more than ever! Also please continue to pray for our student who lost both parents in the past few weeks. The words of encouragement and support from our fellow SPIAA leagues schools is very much appreciated. We are hurting yet we know our support system is strong and will comfort us during this time of sorrow.
Parents and Guardians: Please consider completing this broadband survey. Thank You, Mr. Zehr Survey responses should be submitted by December 15th. Help your community by telling us about your local internet service! Fellow Kansans at the University of Kansas Institute for Policy & Social Research are seeking ways to improve internet access and quality in our state. We need your help finding areas in Kansas that experience internet service gaps. These gaps keep people in Kansas communities from being able to access online education, health care and other critical services. Take the survey and help Kansas get better connected: https://ipsr.ku.edu/broadband/kansas.shtml. This survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. You may take the survey only once. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Dr. Germaine Halegoua (email@example.com), Donna Ginther, principal investigator (firstname.lastname@example.org), or email@example.com. Thank you so much for your time, and we look forward to better understanding your broadband access.
