Students Recognized for Improved Attendance in October

(November 2, 2018) -- Schools are celebrating improvement in the area of attendance this week and that celebration comes with a reward from Hillyard, Inc. The company donated basketball 1,400 tickets to the Small College Basketball Hall of Fame Classic Nov 3-4 at the Civic Arena, which features Missouri Western State University.

The tickets were delivered to students at the elementary and middle schools with the most improved attendance from October 1 to October 31. The winning schools were Mark Twain Elementary and Robidoux Middle School. Each school received at least one free ticket for each student and some for employees. We congratulate them for their focus on improving attendance and making sure students are in class ready to learn.

Thanks to our Strive for 5 sponsor, Hillyard, for the donation!
