September 21 Keeping Up with 475 Newsletter

Welcome to Geary County Schools USD 475’s weekly newsletter. We have so many awesome stories happening every day within our district, and here is where we will share and celebrate the accomplishments of our students and staff.


Congratulations to last week’s #ThrivingThursday recipient, Freddy! Freddy has entered 9th grade with a smile on his face and a bounce in his step. He has shown forth respect to teachers and peers alike within the classroom and is always positively engaged. Way to #ThriveIn475, Freddy!


JCHS Military Appreciation Football Game

The Junction City High School’s October 7th home football game will be Military Appreciation Night! That night, all active-duty members of the military can attend the game for free.


Freedom Walks

Several schools in our district hosted Freedom Walks on September 10, which commemorates those who served our country and the lives lost during 9/11. Thank you to all of the soldiers, firefighters, police officers, and the sheriff’s department for walking with us!
