Thank you so much for your generous donations toward our end-of-year Director Gifts. This has been a challenging year for them both, and it is wonderful to be able to show our thanks. If you still want to make a donation, it must be received TOMORROW in the white box in the band room. THANK YOU!

Tuxedo Return - DEADLINE PAST!! 
Please note that all tuxedos were needed this PAST Friday. We still need many back, and seniors, please note you will not receive your diploma until all school property is returned. It is imperative that ALL tuxes be returned immediately. Students may bring them to the band room and hang them on the appropriate rack. 

Before you return your tux, you must do the following:

  1. Make sure you are returning the actual tuxedo pants – Yep, sometimes we get plain pants instead of fancy pants!
  2. Remove the hem – If the pants have been shortened, they need to come back to school unhemmed and ready for the next person to use them.
  3. Have the pants and jacket professionally dry cleaned – Tuxedos must be returned in the dry cleaner plastic with the receipt attached.
  4. Write the students name clearly on the receipt – You’ll want to make sure we record your return to the right person!

Questions? Feel free to contact Cyndy Dixon at or text 573-416-3334.

Thank you so much for following these steps and helping assure every student looks their best next year!

Good news! The American Flag program is back for 2021! Show your love for the USA by becoming a subscriber -- and recruiting neighbors too! A flag will be placed in your yard for five holidays: Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4th, September 11, and Veterans Day. Subscriptions cost only $40 and make a great statement on a 10’ pole! All you do is pay, and the rest is done for you.


Want to do more? In addition to showing your love for the good ol’ USA, you can also show your love for the band! Sign up to help deliver the flags! It only takes about an hour for each install or pickup, and you have flexibility on your timing too! Vehicles need to accommodate a 10’ pole (most SUVs and vans are fine). This is a fun way to get out and serve in the community -- and your kids can help too! Thanks for your help!
