In Case You’re Wondering: Becoming a Lighthouse District
Over the past two weeks, our district has experienced many #EmporiaProud moments. Our STREAM days continue to provide students with a variety of learning experiences that help them connect the dots between multiple curricular areas. We hosted Senator Jerry Moran, who spent about an hour with students while touring Emporia High School and visiting classrooms. Finally, Kansas Commissioner of Education Dr. Randy Watson spent half a day in the district on Sept. 22.
Anytime you can have the Commissioner of Education visit your district and talk with staff, it is a great opportunity to showcase the learning taking place in Emporia schools. read more
