When it comes to USD 250 and the Dragons, the only color that usually matters is purple.
This week, however, our schools are proudly boasting a Gorilla shade of red as we join with Pittsburg State University, the Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce and the entire community in celebrating Paint the Town Red.
The staff and students -- former and future Gorillas -- at our four elementary schools had a fantastic time decking their halls with red and gold. While we greatly enjoy participating in the Chamber's PTTR School Decorating Competition, the main reason we go all out for this annual event is to show our support for PSU and the Gorillas.
Many of our outstanding teachers are PSU graduates, and we all understand and respect the unique partnership shared between USD 250 and PSU. It's with great pride and appreciation that we crash some waves of red into our sea of purple this week.
Go get 'em this weekend, Gorillas!
