USD 428 Invites Community to Celebrate the opening of the new District Education Center and Little Panthers Preschool

Great Bend Public Schools – USD 428 is delighted to invite the community to a special Open House to celebrate the grand opening of the new USD 428 District Education Center and Little Panthers Preschool.

The event will be held on Thursday, August 1, from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the newly renovated location, 1809 24th Street, Great Bend, KS.

The Open House offers an exciting opportunity for the community to tour the facility, meet with school district staff and administrators, and learn more about the free preschool program for 3 & 4-year-old students at Little Panthers Preschool.

Attendees will have the chance to see firsthand how the new space is designed to enhance educational experiences and foster a thriving learning environment for our youngest learners.

A brief program and ribbon-cutting ceremony are scheduled to take place at 5:30 PM, recognizing numerous community donors whose sponsorship helped furnish and equip the 13 preschool classrooms.

“We are thrilled to open the doors of our new district office and preschool,” said USD 428

Superintendent Khris Thexton. “More than just a building; this facility reflects our district’s dedication to inspiring and empowering students to succeed. We are deeply grateful for the community’s support in making this dream a reality, and we are confident that it will establish a strong foundation for learning for generations to come.”
