The Troy Middle School Trojans Football team hosted Atchison Middle School Seventh Grade on Thursday, September 21.
Atchison was big, tough, and fast, setting the pace of the game early and leading 0-40 at halftime. However, the Trojans showed some life in the second half, scoring two touchdowns behind the blocking of #15 Reed Wampler and keeping Atchison out of the end zone behind the defensive play of #40 Kaleb Jenkins. The Trojans dropped the game 12-40.
Troy’s record drops to 1-3. They host the Centralia Panthers on Thursday, September 28.

First grade went on a field trip to Shatto Dairy to learn about the process dairy products go through from farm to table. They were able to interact with dairy cows, and taste test several flavors of milk.
They finished their day at the Remington Nature center where they met Arnold the tortious, and completed a scavenger hunt throughout the building finding various objects know to the Midwest.

Over the last couple years, I and the board of education have heard some discussion on an earlier start date for school. We will be gathering some input on this topic throughout the first semester of the school year. We will be developing a survey for all to fill out stating their individual choices on start dates, end dates, and breaks with the school year. These will be shared out and the board will ultimately make the decision on the 2024-2025 school calendar base on input gathered.
Researching and speaking with staff who have been here the longest, I can determine that we cut back on the number of days for students and staff in 2009. I know money was tight for schools in 2008-2011 and this has been mentioned as reason to start later and have fewer days. The initial cost savings would have been substantial, I am certain, due to cutting days. Salaries, transportation costs, food service costs, and utility costs would have all factored in to the savings.
I am looking forward to gathering the input and having these discussions. We will get the word out when the survey is developed and hope to gather a lot of responses.
