Celebrity calls to promote attendance

Celebrity Calls Promote Attendance

To help students and families understand the importance of good school attendance, Farley Elementary is partnering with local celebrities to make special announcements. The messages will be shared in phone calls to parents and posted on the school website for those who miss the initial call.

The following is a special message from former KU Basketball Star Jeff Withey.

About Farley Elementary

Farley Elementary, the newest addition to Auburn-Washburn, is the district's seventh elementary school. Built to help with growing enrollment, Farley was commissioned as part of a bond issue passed in 2008. Farley Elementary takes its name from Washburn University President, Dr. Jerry Farley, and his wife, Susan.

Going Green

The design of Farley Elementary makes it Auburn-Washburn's first "green" school:

  • Its construction includes durable masonry.
  • Its low-maintenance brick and pre-finished metal exterior require no future painting.
  • Where possible, materials containing recycled contents are used.
  • Natural light provides the majority of its lighting; over 90% of its spaces have direct views to the exterior.
