We will dismiss school Friday November 5th at 12:30 PM so that staff and students may attend Dion Wildcat's funeral. Buses will run at 12:30. There will be no After School Program either. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and for the late notice. 🐾💚🐾
As many of you know, the Wildcat kids lost their dad/grandad suddenly on Tuesday, November 2nd. Our Whippet Family grieves with them as they go through this time. There are several ways we can help them. First, if you are a believer in prayer, please pray for healing, comfort, and peace for this family. Second, we can assist them with funds to use for funeral costs, clothing, and to assist Minnie (mom) with any other needs she and the kids may have. If you would like to donate cash or check, please bring it to the school or mail checks to Varnum Public Schools, 11929 NS 3550, Seminole, OK 74868. Either office will accept your donation. If at all possible, we would like to be able to present a check to Minnie this Friday, November 5th. I am always surprised and humbled at the caring and giving nature of our Whippet Family. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give to our Wildcat kids. David Brewer Superintendent
