10:00 AM - 11:00 AM District Student Evaluation Meeting
The school district’s social work office is recruiting sponsors to provide assistance to some of our students in need this holiday season. Our goal is for each student to receive the following: a new hoodie; hat/gloves; one package of socks; one package of underwear; and a toy or non-clothing item (a list of suggested items will be provided). A hygiene bag will also be given to each family. The eligibility of the children participating is based on financial guidelines.
The Branson School District will hold parent/teacher conferences October 21-24 (grades PK-6) and October 23-24 (grades 7-12). The district requests that parents attend these scheduled conferences to meet with teachers and receive an update on their student’s academic status.
