Please take our short survey to help decide what topics will be discussed at our upcoming Parent University, April 4th.

NEW HARASSMENT & BULLYING POLICY POSTED: Important information related to changes in Missouri criminal codes has been posted to the District's website. These changes may have an impact on students in the HMC-1 community. The purpose behind the new laws is to protect students who fall victim to bullying and to discourage students from engaging in any sort of physical altercations.
As of January 1, 2017, substantial revisions to some of the Missouri criminal codes took effect. Please see the newly posted policy for details and answers to frequently asked questions.

The book fair was once again successful. We had a coin drive during the book fair, of which we raised just a little over $400. Ms. Poe's class raised the most, with just over $100 in coins. They get to celebrate with a popcorn party. We were able to purchase around 50 books that will be used during a Bingo for Books night this coming spring. Thank you for your continued support of Dobbs Elementary.
One district initiative is for all students to have a library card to the public library. You can now apply online HERE or you student can come by the library and pick up an application. The librarian, Mrs. McCready, will return the application to Mid-Continent and pick-up the card when it is ready. Thank you.
