No classes Jan. 11 in USD 464 to accommodate state debate

December 11, 2012

Tonganoxie USD 464 will play host to the 2013 Class 4A and Class 3-2-1A state debate tournaments on Friday, Jan. 11, and Saturday, Jan. 12.

To accommodate space and requirements for the tournament, there will be no school in the district on Jan. 11.

The board approved the calendar change at Monday’s board meeting.

Tonganoxie USD 464 Superintednent Randy Weseman said the district’s calendar still was well above the state-required 1,116 hours in the school year due to an additional five days built into the calendar.

It is quite an honor for Tonganoxie to be hosting the State debate tournament for 4A & 3A classes. I'm so proude of our debate team who have excelled in the State as one of the best in the State. I know it's not football or Basketball, but some of these kids will grow up to be real leaders in our community, County & Yes a State level. Debate gives these kids the chance to stand above the crowd and become responsible leaders. Congratulations Tonganoxie High School!! Oh Yes, I'm Proud because I went to Tonganoxie All 12 Grades.
