OCTOBER 2017                                                        Brashear, Missouri


The elementary school will be celebrating National School Lunch week October 9-13.  Plan on eating with your favorite Brashear Elementary      student(s) during this week.  An adult lunch costs $3.90.

Please let us know the day before you are eating by sending a note with your child or giving us a call.  The schedule is as follows:

Monday          Kindergarten     10:59-11:21

                        4th Grade          12:17-12:42

Tuesday         1st Grade          10:57-11:19

We are asking that you do not bring younger siblings, as they will have a hard time with the lunch schedule and procedures.  We are also asking that only one guest accompany your child for that day.



On August 22, art instructor Kelli Baker received notice that she was awarded a $500 Missouri  Retired Teachers Foundation grant!  MRTA is a state wide group that supports K-12 school districts and advocates for retired teachers in  Missouri.  This grant is supported locally by the Kirksville Area Retired School Personnel.  The Kirksville chapter works throughout their region to help schools, current teachers, and retired school personnel.  Grant money is raised through silent auctions and other fundraising programs.  Kelli will be using the grant to purchase a Cricut® Maker™ for her classroom.



School will be dismissed at 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, October 26th for parent teacher conferences. Conferences are scheduled from 1:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. If you have not already done so, please contact the school to schedule an appointment for your child(ren).  You will be able to pick up first quarter grade cards at the time of your conference.

Please note that we will not have school on     Friday, October 27, 2017.
