Florence Wilson holds math, literacy night

There will be a math and literacy night from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Florence Wilson Elementary School, 1709 Labrador Blvd. Hot dogs and chips will be served from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. in the cafeteria, and there's a meeting at 6:30 p.m. in a classroom for kindergarten teachers and parents to review their child's data and set new goals. Other students and parents will go to the gymnasium for a camping-themed evening of math and literacy activities.

School's out on Friday

There will be no school for Garden City Public Schools on Friday. It's a scheduled work day for teachers in the morning and, in the afternoon, there's an inservice for new teachers. The district offices and facilities will be open with regular business hours on Friday. School will be back in session Monday.

KDHE hearing is Wednesday

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment's public hearing on an addendum to the air emission source construction permit issued to Sunflower Electric for a proposed power plant in Holcomb is 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Garden City High School auditorium, 2720 Buffalo Way Blvd. Comments may be presented orally or in writing during the hearing.

The addendum addresses a Kansas Supreme Court decision last October that sent the permit back to KDHE to apply one-hour federal air quality emission standards for nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide, and new air emission limits before granting the permit.
