March is here and that brings some much wanted and needed warmer spring weather….
Wednesday, 3-4-20 our sophomores will be attending a tour at KATC (Kirksville Area Technical Center). The majority of these classes are part of a 2-year program consisting of their junior and senior years. If students decide to attend, students can get vocational training in areas such as Digital Design, Nursing, Auto Mechanics, Auto Body Collision Repair, Construction Trades, and Education. This is an OUTSTANDING opportunity for students to obtain a skill or trade with little to no financial cost to themselves.
Our Junior class has begun selling their Red Wheel fundraiser material. The funds from this sale go to the junior class as they host the prom for both juniors and seniors along with other items such as their senior outing.
Our Lady Cat basketball season came to a close in districts last week losing to a very strong Salisbury team. The Lady Cats had 16 wins this year, the most our school has seen in the past 8 years. Along with this, they were the GRC East Champions!! A HUGE congratulations to our girls’ team for their hard work and success!
Our Wildcat basketball team was victorious in the district playoffs and continue to move forward as they will be playing Van Far this Wednesday, 3-4-20 at Hannibal Mo. At 7:45.

February is “Self-Worth” month for the 6 Decisions. This is SUCH an important concept for our young people to know and understand that they HAVE worth and ARE important. Many times, the world around us tells our young people they have to look or act perfect. We need to teach and share with our kids that no one is perfect and we need to accept the person that looks back at us from the mirror. Tell, share with, and make sure your kid(s) know how important they are to you and that they have SELF-WORTH!!!
Thanks for supporting our school and community. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
