NOVEMBER 1, 2010 Brashear, Missouri



The community is invited to join the elementary students, parents, and staff for a fun and  "mysterious" evening beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, November 15th in the elementary gym.  We will celebrate literacy by solving a crime that has been committed in our own elementary school.  Which teacher did it????  That is the question.  Bring your family and follow the clues!  Hope to see you there!

The Adair County R-II School and community have lost a good friend and role model through the death of Diane Bradley.  While we are sad that she will no longer be with us, we are comforted by our memories of her dedication and commitment to the education of students here at Adair County R-II and the surrounding communities.


The school continues to receive donations to the scholarship fund in her memory.  We hope to provide a complete list of those who have honored Mrs. Bradley in the December newsletter. 

God saw her getting tired,

a cure not meant to be,

so He put his arms around her,

and whispered…

“Come with Me”
