Mrs. Jahn from Blanchard Elementary received a mini-grant through Missouri Farm Bureau to implement agriculture in the classroom. One of her class' reading stories is about creating your own garden. It lists the steps of how to create your own garden, even when there isn't much space. This grant money will allow Mrs. Jahn's class to create its own vegetable garden using 5-gallon buckets.

Dear Tiger Family, Thank you for being so supportive as we work through this unfortunate water main issue with the city. With that being said, we WILL be in session tomorrow and the remainder of the week unless there is an unforeseen circumstance. I wanted to communicate some of the precautionary measures we have in place. We have plenty of bottled water on hand for consumption, these will be strategically located in our buildings for students and staff. In addition, we have been told by our local health department to use hand sanitizer after washing our hands, it is readily available for usage. All food preparation will comply with health department guidelines. We are confident we can operate our cafeterias safely and effectively. Again, we thank you for your patience and understanding. This is what makes our district such a great place for our students. I look forward to a very good rest of the week! Sincerely, Neil Glass Superintendent

CGPS welcomed staff back hosting its annual Opening Day at Kinder Hall on the Cape Central High campus. This year's theme was Willy Wonka with Dr. Glass, the district's superintendent, dressed as the main character. The Oompa Loompas, Veruca Salt and Augustus Gloop were all in on the fun! Things got a little sticky when the games kicked off, which included a race to feed Augustus the most items dipped in chocolate syrup! Participants won cash, gift cards and other items. This year's event featured Dr. Ed Leoni as the guest speaker and wrapped up with a staff karaoke contest. It was a fun day and we are ready for an awesome year with our students!

Nancy Strothmann, Cape Central High College and Career Advisor, has been named the rootEd Advisor of the Year. Mrs. Strothmann works hard each day to make sure seniors are aware of their options after graduation and she guides them as they make their postsecondary plans. Mrs. Strothmann helps students fill out FAFSA paperwork, complete college applications and educates students on resources like vocational rehabilitation and more. This past school year, Mrs. Strothmann was able to increase the number of CHS seniors filling out their financial aid documents by 10 percent. rootEd was developed to help students in rural communities develop strong plans for life after graduation as students in rural areas face unique barriers to pursuing a postsecondary pathway. Congratulations, Mrs. Strothmann! We are so proud of you! (Mrs. Strothmann is the second person from the right in the photo.)
