APRIL 2018                                                        Brashear, Missouri



Tuesday, April 3, 2018 is Election Day. This year we had two candidates file for the two available positions. Those who filed include incumbents Jason Taylor and Aaron Zentz.


The district will not hold an election since the number of candidates who filed for the Board is equal to the number of positions available.




We will be conducting our annual Kindergarten registration on Tuesday, April 24th, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the elementary school. All district children who will be 5 years old prior to August 1, 2018 are eligible to register for Kindergarten for the 2018-2019 school year. Please bring your child’s birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of a vision test from an optometrist or physician with you on that day.


Please contact the school at 323-5272 to schedule your appointment.

Your child will soon be taking the Spring Assessment. You may assist us in the process by seeing that your child has plenty of sleep, has a good breakfast, and has a good mental attitude preceding test days. Also, please do not schedule any doctor/dentist/hair appointments during testing hours. Test results help us provide a more complete education to all students.




Breakfast each day includes fruit, juice and milk. Students may choose cereal instead of the breakfast item offered. The following items are offered daily for students to choose from in lieu of the lunch entrée: yogurt or a WOWBUTTER® (peanut butter replacement) and jelly sandwich.
