Week of March 7
Currently, the Dragon Weekly is divided into sections, similar to a daily newspaper:
- District News
- Mountainburg Elementary
- Mountainburg Middle School Brain Academy
- Mountainburg High School
- Dragon Athletics
- Counselors Corner
- Employment Opportunities
Images are used whenever possible to deliver information; however, sometimes, a link is necessary. These are in the form of a blue button that when clicked will take you to more information or to a website.
Over time, the Dragon Weekly may be organized differently. Our goal is to present information to you in an organized manner that is easy to read and understand so that parents and patrons are connected to Mountainburg Schools.
It is 2022 Pageant Week!
Come out and support these ladies and their families this weekend.

Welcome to Mountainburg Schools!
Mrs. Angie Dennis, incoming Special Education Supervisor beginning Fall, 2022
I am a graduate of Van Buren High School. I graduated from Westark College (Associate of Arts and Associate of General Studies), Arkansas Tech University (Bachelors in Elementary Education), University of Arkansas (Special Education), and Harding University (Masters in Educational Leadership/Curriculum and Administration/Educational Specialist).
Previously, I taught Special Education at Altus, Prairie Grove and Alma. I have taught in all areas of special education (Resource/Co-Teach/Inclusion/Self-Contain). I have been the Special Education Director for the last 10 years at Gentry and Decatur School Districts. For the last 5 years, I have been Adjunct Faculty for John Brown University and have taught Special Education. I was also Athletic Director at Gentry School District for 2 and a half years.
My husband Mitch and I have 8 children and 13 grandchildren. We are very much involved in sports. We both officiate and he is an assignor for various leagues and sports. I have been a basketball observer for the Arkansas Officials Association/Arkansas Activities Association for the last 12 years.

More ACT Assistance
The ACT NOW campaign encourages Arkansas high school students to take advantage of opportunities to take the ACT multiple times. Taking the ACT more than one time can result in increased scores, ultimately increasing opportunities for scholarships and admission to colleges, universities, and trade schools. Taking the ACT multiple times also provides students with opportunities to reflect on what they have learned to determine the best course to prepare for life after high school.

Courage: having bravery when facing new things, or situations you might be scared of without showing fear. Being Brave and facing something difficult without showing fear.
From Mrs. Daniel, MHS Counselor
All year, seniors have received emails about scholarships. These have also been posted in the Class of 2022 Google Classroom that Mrs. Daniel has set up.
SENIORS AND PARENTS:
- If your senior receives confirmation that he/she is awarded a scholarship, please make a copy of that letter and have it dropped off to Mrs. Daniel.
Please contact her if you have any questions regarding your student's transcript, registering for the ACT, and scholarships.

Exciting News from Arkansas Tech University!
What students need to know:
- The new tiers begin right now.
- If students have already accepted a scholarship offer, ATU will adjust their award if eligible.
- If students haven't accepted a scholarship offer, ATU will send a new offer if eligible for a higher award, so students need to be watching their email for instructions on how to accept it.
- If students earn more scholarship funds in the old scholarship tiers, their offer will be based on those.
The best news of all -- we are adjusting the renewal requirements to a cumulative 2.75 GPA, meaning it will be easier than ever for students to keep their scholarships once they're a student.
It may take a few weeks to get these offers out to students, please encourage them to be patient with us. Have questions about all this? No worries, just give us a call or email, and we'll do what we can to answer your questions!
Keep Fighting On,
Arkansas Tech University
