A Celebration of Education

McPherson County

All Schools Day

Olive Springs School, District #2

What started in 1914 as a way to celebrate the graduation of McPherson County eighth graders, All Schools Day has grown into one of the largest annual celebrations in Kansas. Education has always been an important event in McPherson County, and a special day continues to be set aside each year to honor graduates from eighth grade, high school and college.

A glimpse of our beginnings can be seen in each of these stories.
