American Education Week
In 2016, an idea was sparked when a group of young farmers were looking for a way to give back and the Plano School District was looking for someone to maintain a 14.4-acre plot of land adjacent to Plano High School. The Kendall-Grundy Young Leaders committee sat down with the school district and discussed how they could use the plot to give back to the community. From there, “Farming for the Community” was born. This year, the Young Leaders Committee donated $4,800 to support local food pantries; $1,000 to support the district’s high school foods classes; and $3,000 to support the Ag in the Classroom, a 4-H school enrichment program. With the remaining funds, the group funded and assembled back-to-school kits from Back 2 School America for every kindergarten student at P.H. Miller School. Each year, the Young Leaders Committee reaches out to local ag suppliers seeking assistance with the farming project. One of the Young Leaders volunteers to plant, maintain and harvest the crop. Following the harvest, the committee meets with the school administration to discuss how to allocate the funds raised from the harvest. Over the past eight years, more than $50,000 has been raised through Farming for the Community to support area food pantries, ag education and other special projects. For more information about this partnership, please reach out to the Plano School District Administration Office or the Kendall-Grundy Farm Bureau.

Homecoming 2023
With the arrival of hot days, it's crucial that D88 students and staff stay well hydrated throughout the day. We therefore strongly recommend that everyone bring their own water bottle to school. Students and staff can then refill their water bottle all day in order to stay hydrated. Students will also be provided with time to fill their water bottles before boarding the bus in the afternoon. We advise everyone to clearly mark bottles with their name. Elementary schools will continue to monitor temperatures for outdoor recess in order to determine a unified plan that is in the best interest of student’s safety. Please check middle and high school announcements for important info about sports practices and games.
