The Fort Osage Stadium and Breezeway construction project won the 2018 ABC Heart of America Chapter Excellence in Construction Award! The Excellence in Construction banquet is being held on November 1, 2018 in downtown Kansas City.
Construction continues on the Woodland Early Childhood Center. Sod has been laid, cabinets are installed, the flooring is almost complete, and with the nicer weather the playground is going in. The building will open for students on January 3, 2019. A ribbon cutting and dedication is being planned for January 2, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. Look for more details to come soon.
The JBZ’s Rockin’ B Mercantile opened at 26911 E. US 24 Highway (the NE corner of 24 Highway and Elsea Smith Rd.) last week. The Mercantile offers fine coffee, tea, pastries, gifts, and unique home decor. The Rockin’ B is owned and operated by two Fort Osage alumni who raised their family right here in the Fort Osage School District. A portion of all proceeds from the business will come back to the Fort Osage Education Foundation to help meet student needs. They are hosting a grand opening this Saturday, October 27th from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
A $20 gift card to JBZ’s will be given away to one lucky winner using the RNG. If you're interested, please email me at email@example.com with ''Coffee" in the subject line by 8:00 am on Monday, October 29.
Give Away prizes are not purchased with District funds. Only Fort Osage employees are eligible to enter the drawing.
