On Monday evening, May 26, the Master Teacher Selection Committee for the 2019-2020 school year met. Three teachers were nominated for the honor.
Jeremy Prudden - Jeremy does a great job trying to help create a more positive school culture. He is always willing to step up and be a leader and is one of the teachers that can have total command of his classroom and have great relationships with his students as well. His leadership with the kindness pays program was a great addition to this year.
Jena Tharman – Jena was nominated for the third year in a row. She is always willing to help out when needed and is respected by her peers. She was able to help a new student this year adjust to classroom and behavior norms and was able to develop a lasting, positive relationship. Jena has great rapport with her student’s parents and strives to continue all the great traditions of the Troy Schools.
Adrienne Geiger was chosen as this year’s Master Teacher of the Year. Adrienne is a thirteen year veteran of the Troy School District. The following is taken from the nomination form…Adrienne is extremely organized, thorough, and task oriented which in turn eases the stress to fellow staff, parents, and her students. She is compassionate and empathetic and has a special way of engaging all students to grow academically and socially. Adrienne is involved in school activities, church activities, and community activities. She is a regular at extra-curricular events and member of the site council and will serve as a PTO officer next year. Adrienne also proposed and executed, the now annual “Community Service Day”, in which the elementary school reaches out to the community businesses, organizations, churches, and individuals to find services that the students may fulfill. This volunteer work gives our students a feeling of importance and pride in doing their part and also helps the community with its needs.
Congratulations Mrs. Adrienne Geiger, 2019-2020 USD 429 Master Teacher of the Year, and to all those nominated!

We know this has been a crazy spring for all! The district is still making plans for the 2020-21 school year. KSHSAA has released the NEW KSHSAA Physical Forms for the 2020-21 school year. All student athletes in grades 7-12 for the 20-21 school term that will be participating in any extra-curricular sport (including cheerleading/dance) are required to have a current KSHSAA physical examination before the first day of practice. The first day of fall practice for 20-21 is August 17, 2020. The physical examination must have been given after May 1, 2020 in order to be valid for the following school year. The appropriate physical forms are linked below and also available at the Troy Central Office (Mon.-Thurs. - 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.) This requirement is a part of our compliance with Kansas State High School Activities Association.

Dear USD Parents, Guardians, Homeschool Parent/Teachers, and Student Caregivers:
I again can’t tell you how much we thank you and appreciate you. I wanted to reach out to you and with the deepest sense of admiration for you, tell you thanks. Hang in there with us! We are approaching the downhill side. I am not certain about anyone else, but is seems like March and April have lasted a real long time! I want to see the silver lining in that and be thankful I have had an opportunity to spend more time with and communicate more with family and friends. Even though it has been in a social distancing type of way.
Governor Kelly laid out plans for re-opening our Great State. We do not believe schools will re-open for this school year. I have always held out hope they would, and we could finish in our buildings with your kids. However, we have been instructed to follow our school schedule and finish out the school on a strong note. We intend to do that outside the classrooms and buildings.
What August will bring we do not know yet. We will plan for “regular” school. The state department of education will be working on a plan in case this does not happen. I believe we are in agreement, we are ready to be done with online school and would love to be in our buildings next school year. We want that also.
We will be sending out information in the coming weeks for end of the school year procedures. This will, at the very least, involve bringing in the technology, books and other items we have loaned you. We want to continue to work with you and offer any help we can, even if it is words of praise, thanks, or encouragement. We so much appreciate your help and support during this time.
Patrick E. McKernan
Superintendent of Schools/Elementary Principal
