Guiding Guardians

“Preparing the Shawnee-Mission East Student for More Rewarding College Experience” was the theme of the 1959-1960 Parent-Teacher Association. Hours of detailed planning went into the five informative assemblies.

One of the highlights of the year was a Parent-Education Assembly in October which featured a panel composed of students, faculty members, and parents. This discussion helped members to gain a better understanding of the many extracurricular activities sponsored by the school.

Several well-qualified speakers from various departments of Kansas City University discussed the topic, “Proper Preparation for College-Bound Students” at the November P.T.A. assembly. 

In April, the successful P.T.A. program was brought to a close with a discussion about the Shawnee-Mission East counseling program. 

Under the able direction of Mrs. Arthur Popham, P.T.A. President, the year’s activities accomplished the association’s goal of perfect parent – faculty – student harmony.
