It is hard to believe it is already November. The first couple of months have gone extremely well. I continue to be impressed by the faculty, students, parents, and community members of this district every day.

            I want to remind everyone of the importance of communicating with our office any change in evening transportation of your student. The safety of our students is always our primary concern. I realize that our main office line is often busy, so I am including all three phone numbers of the school if you need to make contact. These numbers can always be found on the front page of our website. Line 1: 573-729-3902, Line 2: 573-729-9412, and Line 3: 573-729-2452. Please do not hesitate to call the office with arrangements for transportation as needed.

            November means the holiday season is upon us and that cold weather is just around the corner. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately as we will be outside in some pretty cold weather. In the event that school is cancelled due to inclement weather, it will be communicated via our school Facebook page, an all call, a push notification on the app, KY3, and KSMO.

            Please label your child’s coats, lunch boxes, and other personal items. This will help us locate the owners of items left around the school building.

            Our 7th/8th grade basketball season is underway. The athletes have been working hard in practice, and I am proud of the way they have been representing the school. Remember that you too are representatives of the school when you attend a game and root for the Mustangs. Please be positive fans in the stands at all times.

            As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please call the office, or email me at Mrs. Crocker and I are always willing to set up an appointment to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. It is a great day to be a Mustang, and I know the rest of the year will be just as great as the beginning has been so far. Thank you.

 3 Researched Parent Actions that Directly Affect Student Achievement.

  1. Make sure your child gets to school every day and is on time. Missed class time is missed learning time.
  2. Make sure your child gets plenty of rest.
  3. Support the school. The way children hear their parents talk about the school is generally reflected in their attitude towards school. A child’s attitude towards teachers and learning will affect their education.
