Reminder: If you have a child entering kindergarten, 8th, or 12th grade, they need vaccines or boosters. The closer you wait to the start of school, the more difficult it is likely to be to get them . So go ahead and get the shots now while the supply is good. Bring your proof to the school to be added to your child's health record. Vaccines and records need to be updated before school starts.
Attendance Policy – MCE 2300 Missouri school law 167.031 requires every parent, or other person in the state having charge, control, or custody of a child between the ages of 7 and 17 years shall cause the child to attend regularly some day school, public, private or parochial or parish, not less than the entire time the school which the child attends is in session or shall provide the child at home regular instruction . . .
The After School program will continue this year. However, there will be a cost of $1.00 per day fee charged per child to offset the cost. If the account becomes 30 days delinquent the child will not be able to stay. Ms. James and Mrs. Christy Worsley will be in charge again this year. The schedule will be similar as last year with pick up time at 5:30. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school at . . .

“Selfies” (self-portraits) were the assignments for these grades. Art can be a ton of fun for a student of this age. However, simply trying to draw a line can be overwhelming, so we began the year with putting pencil and crayon to the paper. For the older end of the group, we’ve begun talking about adding things like ears and feet. We’ve also begun looking at moving away from stick figures and trying to draw a body. I think for their very first art class assignment, they’ve done a remarkable job!
