A Celebration of Education

McPherson County

All Schools Day

As an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff, it is only through the generous contribution of time, energy and financial resources of thousands of volunteers over the years that All Schools Day will celebrate its 105th anniversary in 2018.

Join us again this year for the McPherson County All Schools Day celebration!

The 105th annual All Schools Day celebration will be held in McPherson, Kansas, May 6 - 12, 2018. The theme this year is:

Fun in the Sun

All Schools Day was started in 1914 as a way to celebrate the graduation of McPherson County eighth graders. Education has always been an important event in McPherson County, and a special day was set aside annually that now honors graduates from eighth grade, high school and college.

All Schools Day

highlights include
a week-long carnival,
two nights of May Fete (Wednesday and Thursday), the Parade which begins at 10:30 a.m. on Friday morning, the Madathon on Friday afternoon, and many other activities for kids of all ages. Check back often as we update the website with information on all of the All Schools Day events.

Since 1987, the All Schools Day Button has been a big part of our tradition. Designs are submitted by area residents, from which the winning design is chosen. To see our entire button collection, check out our Button Collection page.
