We are in the second quarter and time is flying. Please make sure to check out all of the wonderful artwork classes are doing this year. Either online or at the High School display cases. Please encourage your students to keep on top of their studies and turns assignments in on time.
I have been adding students to Artsonia. (Artsonia is the world's largest collection of student art, published by teachers and students from around the world. Parents and family can view the art online, leave comments, and order keepsakes featuring the artwork.) If you get a notification from them this is why. The holidays are coming! You may wish to order special items from Artsonia as gifts. A portion of the purchases goes to the Art Department.

The Charger staff members have been hard at work this semester building a better yearbook for SFT. Yearbooks are currently on sale for $50. Log on to jostens.com to purchase, or pick up an order form at the high school. Order by December 1 and your name goes into a drawing for a $25 Casey's gift card. Submit your senior tributes to Julie Smith, if you haven't already. In October we spent a day soliciting local businesses to purchase yearbook ads and the community was overwhelmingly supportive of our students! A great big Charger THANK YOU to the following businesses who said yes to an ad!

You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life... at SFTHS's Fall Musical, "Mamma Mia!" Through the music of the famous 1970s Swedish Pop Group ABBA, "Mamma Mia!" tells the hilarious story of a young woman's search for her birth father. On a small Greek island, Sophie dreams of a perfect wedding — one which includes her father giving her away. The problem? Sophie doesn’t know who he is! Her mother Donna, the former lead singer of the 1970s pop group Donna and the Dynamos, refuses to talk about the past, so Sophie decides to take matters into her own hands. Sneaking a peek in her mother’s old diaries, she discovers three possible fathers: Sam, Bill, and Harry. She secretly invites all three to the wedding, convinced that she’ll know her father when she sees him. But when all three turn up, it may not be as clear as she thought! Told through the legendary music of ABBA, "Mamma Mia!" has become a worldwide sensation that has audiences everywhere dancing.
Come check out "Mamma Mia!" next weekend in the SFTHS Auditorium!

Athletics and Activities at Santa Fe Trail High School
As the fall activities at Santa Fe Trail are completed, we are now gearing up for the winter events. Basketball, Wrestling, Scholar’s Bowl and Debate will headline much of the extra-curricular happenings at SFT over the next few months. The winter sports parent meeting is Tuesday, November 8th at the high school starting at 7:00 pm.
The Chargers went 2-7 on the season this year, with wins over Osawatomie and Iola. We had many younger classmen gain varsity experience this year, and were competitive in all but two games. The junior varsity finished 4-3 on the season.
On October 22nd the Chargers traveled to Silver Lake for the Sub-State Volleyball Tournament for Class 3A. This was a very competitive sub state. Santa Fe Trail lost to Silver Lake, and the winner of our sub state finished 1st in state, Olathe Heritage. Trail finished 22-12, and were undefeated in Pioneer League play.
The Santa Fe Trail Cross Country teams competed at the Council Grove 3A Regional on Saturday, October 22rd. Like VB, our regional was very competitive with the 4 of the 5 top returning teams in the state. Both boys and girls’ teams competed very well, but only Bryce Roberts qualified for the 3A state tournament at Rim Rock. Bryce finished in 39th place at 3A state.
The varsity season kicked off on 10/25 at Bonner Springs. The team had success finishing 3rd at West Franklin on 11/1. Good start for the Chargers.
For the 3rd year in a row, SFT has a golf state medalist! Bailey Anshutz finished in 18th place in 4A state, which was held at Emporia Municipal Golf Course.
On November 11-13th, the Musical “Mama Mia” will premier. On November 11th and 12th, the musical will be at 7:00pm, and the 13th it will be at 2:00pm.
The debate team opened their season 10/29 at Baldwin. SFT entered 6 individuals, with two (Sam and Andrew Shepard) finishing in 4th place.
KSHSAA Buffer Week
The KSHSAA Senior High Fall Athletic Buffer Week is Monday, November 7th thru Sunday, November 13th. There shall be no athletic practice, offseason conditioning, informal basketball shooting, working out on wrestling mats, etc. in school owned facilities during the fall athletic buffer week. Athletic activities of this nature may not be held under the supervision of a school staff member in non-school facilities. This means a moratorium on all school sponsored athletic activities during this week. Gymnasiums shall not be open to students during the fall athletic buffer week for purposes of shooting baskets, working out with weights, etc. outside of school hours. Physical education classes are considered part of the school day. Buffer week does not eliminate football practices for those senior high schools who qualify for football playoffs until such time their footballs season is over.
