Need to Know Information

Welcome Back: We are excited to see all our students back on Tuesday, January 4, 2021. We hope everyone enjoyed their break!


Character Student of the Month Assembly: We will have our Character Student of the Month Assembly on Friday, January 7 at 7:45 AM in the Jr. High Gym. If your student is being selected as a Character Student for the month of December, you will be notified!


Grade Cards: Second quarter grade cards will be sent home on Friday, January 7. If you have any questions regarding your child's grade card, please contact his or her teacher!


Glow Kids Book Study: We will be starting our Parent Book Study on Tuesday, January 18 at 5:30 PM in the Elementary Preschool Commons Area. Those participating will receive their copy of the book that evening and we will share the reading plan for the study. If you have not signed up to participate in the book study, and would like to join us, please let the Elementary Office know so we can ensure we have enough books ordered! So far, we have 26 families signed up!


Volunteer Training: If you are wanting to be a volunteer in our school on a regular basis, mark your calendars for Wednesday, January 19 for our training! This will be at 8:15 AM in our Elementary Data Room. This training should take less than an hour. Please call the elementary office at 417-723-5300 ext. 1301 to RSVP for the training.


Boys & Girls Club is Hiring: The Boys & Girls Club is hiring Youth Development Professionals for the Crane location. Once they hire their staff, then we will be able to start offering afterschool care! If you or someone you know is interested in working for BGC, please apply at the website found here.


Transportation Changes: We understand plans can change throughout the day. If transportation plans change for your child, please call the office to let Whitney know so she can ensure your child gets the message. Some parents have been messaging teachers on Dojo and there are days teachers do not see messages until after students have left for the day. We would hate to miss an important message! The Elementary office number is 417-723-5300 ext. 1301.


Absences: If your child is going to be absent from school, we need you to call the Elementary office to let us know. If you call before anyone is at school, please leave a voicemail letting us know your child's name and reason for absence. The office phone number is 417-723-5300 ext. 1301.


COVID Testing: Did you know if your child as COVID symptoms you can arrange to have Nurse Tena administer a rapid COVID test for free? We ask that you call the office to arrange a time with Nurse Tena to bring your child in for testing. She will have the results within 15 minutes. Please know we will NOT test your child without your consent!
