Community Service Learning is putting on a Dungeons and Dragons Quest to raise money. All proceeds will go to the Gospel Rescue Mission. Tickets to this week-long event will be sold from October 1- October 3 before school or in Mrs. Moon's room, Room 123. 

The cost is $5 to play or $10 for a "god-like power" (a powerful ability). 

The game will go on from October 7-11 from 3:00-4:30. You will need to create your character before you come!  


Help Give Back

Students, if you are looking for a way to give back to our community, one of our electives, Community Service Learning, is working to do just that! Please consider supporting  one of these projects if you can. Each project was created and is being managed by students.

  • Help for the Homeless:

With the money donated to us, we will be buying supplies to create care packages. These will be given to the homeless in our area. Money can be sent to room 123, Mrs. Moon

  • Help for Dogs:

Our goal is to build simple dog houses and get more dogs off the street. 

Supplies Needed: blankets (new or gently used), large storage tubs, dog beds, dog bowls, pillows, collars, leashes, and dog food

There will be a donation drive at PetCo in Poplar Bluff on Saturday, September 28, from 9 am - 12 pm. Items or money can be dropped off in Mrs. Moon's room,  123.


  • Help for Children and Teens in Foster Care:

Toiletries Drive for Foster, Adopt, Connect from November 11- 22

Student Email

All student email is monitored. If you use it for reasons other than school or we find anything inappropriate, you will lose access to your Google account.


Student Choice Program at Lunch

Student Choice is a program designed to give students a voice on what they would like to see on the menu each month. There are 9 stations to choose from and each month we will sample from 2 stations and then you students will vote on which one they would like to have on the menu. Voting is done on laptops located at the sample table.  This will happen on September 23 and 24th.  September stations will be Butcher & Baker - Specialty Sandwiches and Chaat House Flavors of India


Health Screenings

On Thursday  all 7th graders will be doing health screenings. These will be done from 8:30-10:15 and from 12:30-2:15 in the health room. 


Cell Phone Reminder

We are seeing lots of cell phones being used in class.  Remember, if you have it out, it will be taken and turned into the office. 


ICU-
Our ICU program is up and going!  This program is not intended to be a “punishment”.  It’s an extra support designed to help students complete their work and learn the material. Put forth your best efforts and complete your work on time!  If you end up on the list repetitively, then before/after school tutoring or Saturday schools will be used to help get you caught up.
