What an absolutely gorgeous day to play some softball & wrap up the Jr. High Lady Indians season at the SCAA Tournament today at Advance. This group of girls did so good today & we are so very proud of you! They played 3 back to back games this afternoon beating Richland first, turn around & lost to Bloomfield then faced off against Advance in the 3rd place game. It was neck & neck the whole game & at the very last minute, Advance scored a run breaking the tie to take the win. What a game it was! A special thank you goes out to our coaches, the mom & daughter duo, Ms. Haynes & Ms. Haynes, who stepped up mid-season to ensure these young ladies were able to finish out what they started together. We greatly appreciate you both!! Great job today ladies! Very proud of all of you!🥎🧡🖤🧡🥎

Good luck boys!

There is one group of people in our school district that are often overlooked because they are not seen in the classrooms providing instruction during the day, in the cafeteria during lunch, monitoring students in the hallways or at recess. Yet, this significant group come together not just once a month, but whenever they are needed to help make decisions that will impact all staff & students in the district for years to come. This past week, we recognized our Puxico Board of Education members for Board of Education Week as a way of saying thank you for all they do for the district. Ms. Thompson worked with elementary students creating report cards & certificates for the board members & they each enjoyed reading theirs & comparing grades & shared many laughs together. This past week, every board member was highlighted on our district FB page providing a glimpse into their vested interest in the district, their family, & a little about themselves. This group has worked tirelessly together, never leaving a stone unturned before making a decision while always keeping the students best interest in mind. Thank you Puxico Board of Education members. We greatly appreciate your contribution to the board & continued service to the district.
