HS January Students of the Month: Kyle Chapman & Breanna Henson
On January 14, 2014, the State Board of Education approved the administration of the ACT to all 11th grade students in Missouri public schools beginning in 2014-15. This test will be administered on April 28, 2015. All currently enrolled juniors will be given this assessment on that date. The state has also determined that all non-public entities with students who are residents of the district are eligible to participate in the state administration of the ACT.
A participating non-public student must:
-Be a resident of the district in which the assessment is administered.
-Provide proper identification document (Possibilities are provided on the ACT site).
-Complete the non-test portions of the answer document at the administering school PRIOR to the date of administration.
-Notify the school of your desire to take the assessment PRIOR to April 1, 2015

PAT Free Screening
West County's Parents as Teachers program is looking for infants and toddlers ages 2 months thru 2yr 11 months to provide a FREE developmental, vision and hearing screening. We would LOVE to screen every child within the district!!! Please contact Amy Therrell at (573) 562-2984 to set up a screening.
As you are probably already aware, the temperatures the next couple of days are forecasted to be quite cold. We would ask that you take extra precautions when getting your child(ren) prepared for school and make sure they are clothed appropriately for the weather. At this time, we do plan to have school however, if this would change, the District will follow the normal procedures in regard to calling radio stations, Fox 2 News and the use of the all-district alert system.
