Retired and current educators in our area met today to discuss developing interest and opportunities for future teachers through the Grow Your Own program. The Grow Your Own program was developed by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to recruit more teachers and keep them in the profession. The temporary grant will help the District hold community events to bridge the gap between future teachers and regional education programs. Grow Your Own will also help provide scholarships for students pursuing a degree in education. Today's group discussed the details of the Grown Your Own program and fundraising opportunities to provide future scholarships after the temporary funds expire. For more information or if you would like to donate to the Grow Your Own program, please contact Katie Shultz at email@example.com.

Due to the uncertainty of the future weather forecast the high school graduation ceremony will be held in the middle school gym. Each graduate was given one ticket at this morning's practice for them or their family to park in the parking lot. Only vehicles with tickets will be allowed in the MS parking lot. All other vehicles must park at the Distribution Center. Copeland bus services will have shuttles to and from the DC before and after graduation. The shuttles will begin when the doors open at 5:30 pm. If there is a necessary reason that someone needs to be dropped off at the door, vehicles can pull into the lot to drop off, but then must return to the DC parking lot. There are no limitations on the number of spectators. Seating will be first come first serve. The commons will be open for people to watch the ceremony. The ceremony will be live streamed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNy9OITgt1c. If you have any questions please call the HS office at 573-265-2300 option 3.
Congrats to our April Leading the Tiger Way High School Winners, Mrs Katie Shultz and Mr. Matt Laney!
