PUXICO R-8 SCHOOL ADDS 2 BUSSES TO THE FLEET Puxico R-8 School is excited to receive two, low-mileage busses to replace aging busses on the routes. This planned purchase allows the district to maintain a dependable bus fleet to meet the needs of our students. The aging busses will be auctioned off on Saturday, October 14 by Jacob Goodin Consignment Auction. See the last picture for more details.

NEW SCOREBOARDS ARE IN THE ARNOLD RYAN GYMNASIUM Today we were honored with a couple of special guests on campus. Anthony Sifford, his wife Kim, and Rhonda Hancock came to campus to visit with a few of the players for the Puxico Indians’ Basketball Teams and their Puxico Indians’ Basketball Coaches. Last year, on behalf of First Midwest Bank, Anthony wanted to provide score boards for the Arnold Ryan Gymnasium. With Anthony’s recommendation, First Midwest Bank graciously provided two new scoreboards for the gym. These new boards are a wonderful improvement in our facility and features panels that will display each players fouls and points. We can’t wait to show them off this season and for years to come. Our Jr. High basketball season is fast approaching so stay tuned for our upcoming game schedules. We appreciate all of our community partnerships and are so thankful for the village that supports our students and all they do. A special thank you today, to First Midwest Bank.

A special thank you from Mrs. Hindman & Mrs. Orton to their JH STUCO students who volunteered their time to help out in the concession stand this year & volunteered last minute when games were rescheduled. Thank you to the parents for adjusting your schedules for transportation for these students. You were all appreciated! The JH STUCO carried out the tradition started by the HS crews who worked hard in there in the past & signed the wall to commemorate their hard work this year.
