LMS Careers Class Visit WSU and WATC

22 8th graders woke up early Monday, February 20th, on a day they had off of school, to think about the future. The students toured Wichita State University and Wichita Area Technical College. All 8th graders will tour Pratt Community College later this spring, but these 22 students will now be able to compare it to what they saw today at a 4-year college and a technical college. 

And a former Greenback spotted us eating lunch at Shocker Hall. Thanks for stopping Hayden Schrag.

PHS Forensics at Meade High School

Despite three kids ill (and five dropped events) who couldn't make it to the Meade High School Forensics Tournament on Thursday, Feb. 16th,  Pratt High Greenbacks still managed to get eight events into finals and to make it to 3rd place out of 12 teams.

One particularly strong success and surprise story was that Coach Rose Beilman threw Skye Monroe into Prose at the last minute due to drops, and even though this sophomore was flying with a new piece which she'd never performed before, she made it to 3rd place and she qualified for state championships for the first time ever
 
Other successes included students who qualified for state championships including silver medal winners, sophomore David Mathes and freshman Camdon Nickelson in Duet Acting - for the first time ever, and sophomore Alesha Bergner who reprised her qualifying oration for silver, also.
 
Making it into finals were many first time finalists, including the following. Bronze winners were sophomores Bergner and Meredith Queal in Duet Acting, and Ciara Hodgkinson with her two medals in both Oration and Informative Speaking. Freshmen Elly Fowler and Kahrie Stegman received 5th place for their duet, while Mathes and Nickelson paired up again for Improvised Duet Acting, receiving 6th.
 
Without the added talents of Ryleigh Cook, Lindsey Bergner, and Amee Hidalgo, the team wouldn't have place third by the end of the night.
 
Next, the team travels to Kiowa County where they'll be up against 15 teams and 228 entries.

Greenback Athletes Give Back

Thursday, January 19th, some of the Pratt High student athletes gave a helping hand to Southwest Elementary School. After the recent ice storm, the school had debris covering their front lawn, so the athletes went and picked up branches and set them out for the city to pick up. These PHS boys are great role models for the younger kids at Southwest who look up to them. Even with a lot on their plate, they still made time to put in some . . .
