Need to Know Information

Picture Day: We will be having picture day on Thursday, September 22. You should have received an email with details on how to order your school pictures. If you have any questions, please see the graphic below. All orders must be made and paid for online. Even if you do not order pictures, your student will have his/her picture taken for the school's yearbook.


Character Council Members: Our newly selected Character Council members will be attending Galena's Fair on the Square on Friday morning. Students who were selected were given a permission slip that will need to be signed and returned before Friday.


Boys & Girls Club Closed Friday: This Friday, September 23, there will be no afterschool care for Boys & Girls Club. Please call the office to notify us of how your child will be going home for Friday. 417-723-5300 ext 902.


Title and Reading Intervention Small Groups: With testing being completed, we have determined students who will be receiving extra reading help throughout the day. These groups will change as students show progress on skills being taught. We are hopeful that with the extra support, students will gain the skills and be more confident readers.


Tennis Shoes on PE Days: Please remind your child(ren) to wear tennis shoes on their class's PE day. Just in case you have forgotten which day your child has PE, see below:

Tuesdays: Mr. Johnson, Mrs. Bakken and 1/2 of Ms. Ginter, Mrs. Forrester, Mrs. Buckhannan

Wednesdays: Mrs. Brubaker, Ms. Jensen and 1/2 of Ms. Ginter, Mrs. Merritt, Mrs Calhoun
