A new school year will be here soon!   We are going to ROCK AND ROLL this year!   School begins at Phelps County R-III on Thursday, August 13 at 8:00a.m..  Our Back to School Registration and Title I Night is scheduled from 6:00 to 7:30pm on Tuesday, August 11!  Please plan to meet in the gym and we'll get started with introductions and all of the important information your child needs to be successful. 

Pre-School is full and letters will go out soon.  If your child did not register for pre-school please call the school and put your name on the waiting list.  If children do not show up or stay in attendance we move through the list.  To qualify for PreSchool admittance (when there is a slot available) the child must be potty trained and be four (4) years old prior to July 31.

See you soon!
