The sophomores picked their blind date with a book choice. What will their blind date be? Will it be a mystery, a drama, or perhaps a historical fiction date? The suspense was excruciating in the English room. Stay tuned for blind date stories.

McPherson County Schools is grateful to announce the grant award from Mid-Nebraska Community Foundation for the purchase of Digital Media Equipment. Through the John Russell Applegate Fund for Teachers Grant, MCS has been able to purchase a Sony HD Camcorder as well as background lighting, external microphone, camcorder accessories, and a DJI OM4 Stabilizer. This equipment has been instrumental in the production of our weekly news segment, The McPherson County Minute. The grant also funded the purchase of a DJI Mavic 2 Pro Drone. This is a high-quality drone that affords our students the opportunity to learn how to operate the latest equipment. The use of drones has increased, not only in the digital media segment of education, but also in the agricultural section as well. We are extremely grateful for this award. This equipment will absolutely enhance the quality education that the students of MCS already receive. Thank You, Mid-Nebraska Community Foundation for your continued support of our students!
