On August 16th Mary Schrag, a member of the Missouri State Board of Education, visited the Eminence R-I Campus. Mrs. Schrag delivered remarks related to recent developments for the State Board of Education and Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education pertaining to public education. Mary has also been instrumental in her efforts with the Blue-Ribbon Commission on Teacher Recruitment and Retention. After her remarks, the Eminence High Band performed, and then Mary toured the Little Redwings Daycare located on the Eminence R-I Campus. It was a great honor and privilege to be able to showcase some of our unique and high-quality local programs for a member of the State Board of Education.

ATTENTION PARENTS/GUARDIANS: Printed grade reports are going home with students today.
Did you know over 70% of a school day demands good visual skills for effective and efficient learning? However, when asked, almost half of students report at least one learning difficulty related to visual issues. Alexandra Spichtig, Ph.D., and her Stanford Taylor Foundation team, will conduct free student screenings and make results available to the Eminence R-1 School District. Superintendent Dr. Allen says, "This is a very select and special opportunity for out students and community as the Standford Taylor Foundation is a nationally recognized leader in the field of visual and perceptual skill development related to reading and learning." Additional information will be send home with students related to his process soon.

Who helps students better understand their own strengths? Who works with parents to help overcome obstacles raising their children? Who helps students face various life challenges? Who works with teachers to help facilitate best student learning situations? Who does so many behind the scenes tasks no one ever sees to help the school system run smoothly? Those people are called school counselors and we are lucky at Eminence R-1 to have these two women advocating for our team. Thank you Julie Voyles (HS Counselor) and Bridget Liggett (EL Counselor) for all you do. And, happy National School Counselor Week.
Yep, it's true. This Friday school is in session. It'll be ok. You will survive!

Let's start 2023 by "Being THAT Person!" The one that has confidence. The one that is healthy. The one that beat depression. The one that went for it. The one that refused to give up. The one that inspires others. Who you are and what you accomplish is entirely up to you! That’s it. We all have the same 24 hours in a day and people just don’t fall on top of a success mountain. Success happens on purpose. The path to success is broken down into small daily actions done consistently over time. We don’t just succeed randomly, we prepare for it. Success actually happens on purpose. The honest truth? There is no pill or person that is going to make it happen for you. Yes, you can get help when accomplishing your goals, but it’s up to you to take action. Our current lives are a result of the decisions we have made and the actions we have taken. Choosing to do nothing is still a choice and has a result. We are the reason why we are where we are today. Yes, life happens, things suck sometimes, but how we respond to these things is up to us. We can feel sorry for ourselves and stay there or we can choose to grow through what we go through. You have what it takes! You can rise up from anything. You can completely recreate yourself at any age. You are not stuck! All that matters is that you decide today and never look back.
