Lee’s Summit West High School’s speech and debate team has been named one of the Top 100 schools in the National Speech & Debate Association for the 2017-2018 school year. Lee’s Summit West High School ranked 21 out of more than 3,500 schools nationwide.
The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District will host the district’s 31st annual College Night on Oct. 15, 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m., at the Pavilion at John Knox Village, 520 NW Murray Road.
Students from all Lee’s Summit R-7 high schools, as well as our surrounding area school districts, are invited to attend for the opportunity to speak with representatives from more than 100 higher education institutions, including military and trade-specific schools. All grade levels are welcome although juniors and seniors are especially encouraged to attend with their families.
Continued thanks to everyone who has engaged with our Comprehensive Facilities Master Plan (CFMP) process. We have seen how connected our community is to our schools and it continues to be a strength we value in our schools.
Presentation materials and video streams from each night of our first in-person engagement series are posted on our CFMP webpage: www.lsr7.org/cfmp. We have also added the “Current Needs” survey results overview to the webpage. The comment card questions and answers from the first series are also posted. These can be found in the “Timeline: Track our Progress” section of the CFMP website.

In a single year, Kansas City Rescue Mission Men’s Center uses around 10,000 rolls of toilet paper—an expense of $6,000. The Mission is holding its “TP Power Competition and Rally” to wipe this need and its costs off the budget for good!
Toilet paper donations will be used at KCRM’s Men’s Center and Women’s Center, where homeless men and women find hope and healing from addiction, mental health issues and other barriers to success. The donations will also be distributed to families living on the edge of poverty and to smaller agencies throughout the metro area who also meet the needs of the poor and homeless.
KC Wolf, Cosentino’s Price Chopper in Raintree, and Trailridge Elementary in Lee’s Summit have teamed up to help this cause!
