Community meetings have been scheduled for 6:30 pm in the Shidler Auditorium on January 28th and at 6:30 pm in the Kaw City Community Center on January 29th. Please call or email Superintendent, Rick Rogers anytime with any questions you may have. He is willing to come talk to any size group between now and election day.

As many of you already know, Shidler Public Schools added Fall Baseball in 2018. Coach Kirk planned and took his team on a very special team building trip to Southeast Oklahoma over the Labor Day Weekend. Our school district is fortunate to have coaches and teachers who go the extra mile to make Shidler Public Schools a GREAT PLACE for our youth to learn and grow. We hope you enjoy this short documentary that Coach Kirk produced of the TEAM BUILDING Labor Day Trip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2OzB5VFGAc
Our NEW Concession Stand
Thank you Shidler School District Patrons for supporting the bond to build a new combination softball/baseball concession stand with restrooms. A cleaning crew will come in shortly after the Break to spit-shine the building. Once grass grows in around the construction site, it will look even better. We hope you are as pleased with your new concession stand as we are. Allan Fogle is volunteering his time to build custom cabinets and shelving for the building. Other key features are service windows for both baseball and softball and handicap accessible restrooms with central heat and air conditioning. Please stop by anytime to look the building over. Improvements to our district are not possible without your support. THANK YOU!!!
Shidler Alum, Dr. Delores Van Camp Etter and her husband Jerry, have announced a $1,000 incentive scholarship for every future graduate of Shidler High School who enrolls and is accepted into any form of educational training beyond high school. The scholarship will pay for either college or vocational training. Dr. Etter recently told students at Shidler High School that continuing education and training beyond high school can help them secure good paying jobs and enjoy satisfying careers. “Education,” she said, “is your ticket”. She also told students that, “post-secondary education is possible for anyone willing to commit themselves to it”. Dr. Etter went on to tell students that she believes so strongly in the power of continuing education, that she and Jerry were willing to invest the first $1,000 into each of their educational futures. The scholarship will begin with the 2019 Senior Class and continue for each graduate of Shidler for years to come. As a school district, Shidler is tremendously thankful to Delores and Jerry for their immense generosity shown by this scholarship and also for the many other times and ways they have supported Shidler Schools and Shidler Students. We are extremely proud of Dr. Etter’s distinguished lifetime accomplishments and are humbled that someone with her experiences and accomplishments would continue to return time and money to Shidler Schools, to a place where her education began.
