Golf Tournament

It has been a little while since we sent you a newsletter, and we thought you might like to know what we are planning next. The Shawnee Heights Public Schools Foundation Annual Golf Tournament is next on our year's list of events. It will be held on Monday, August 1, 2022, at Great Life Shawnee County Country Club. This tournament is just one of the fundraisers we hold each year to help support the teachers and students of Shawnee Heights. Last year, we had a fantastic turnout with over 25 teams and sponsorships from many local businesses. We plan to have another great year this year. If you are interested in playing or sponsoring this year's tournament, we have various opportunities available. Check them out at on our Annual Golf Tournament Event Page. Registration and payments must be received by July 15, 2022.


Teacher Grants

This year, the Foundation had the pleasure of awarding more than $8,400 in grants to teachers for various programs. For the first time, we are gearing up to offer another round of grants this fall when teachers arrive back at school! These grants allow teachers to try new things in their classrooms that budget restrictions would not otherwise cover. The teachers look forward to these grants every year. Watch the 2022 Foundation Grant Video to see the special moment the teachers received their grant.

Staff Farewell

In May, the Shawnee Heights Public Schools Foundation hosted one of our favorite events, The School Year Farewell. This event used to be called the "Winter Mixer" and was held as a welcome back event for the Shawnee Heights staff after winter break. After some feedback from the staff, we moved this event to May as the year-end thank you to the staff of Shawnee Heights. We appreciate the hard work the staff does, and this is just a small way to show them our appreciation.

Scholarship Night was a fantastic event. We thank Kayla Banzhaf and the Counseling Department for the hard work they put into this night each year. Here at the 2022 Scholarship winners!

Major Saver

Our Major Saver Discount Card Campaign has fallen a little short in the past couple of years. However, we were still able to raise $14,527.50 for our teachers and students of Shawnee Heights, with the support of our students, teachers, staff, parents, and community members.

Major Saver is a community-oriented corporation dedicated to providing a premier fundraising program that benefits schools, students, local businesses, and our community. Many Shawnee Heights parents work hard to help their students sell the Major Saver Discount Cards. We want to thank those parents and our community members who purchase them. Don't miss out! Major Saver Discount Cards will be back in students' back packs the end of November.
