We love when our little kids partner with big kids! Kindergartners drew pictures showing what they want to be when they grow up and shared them with Mrs. Corales' 6th grade Honors Class. The Pinkston students wrote letters about those jobs and sent them back to the kindergarten. Kindergartners in Mrs. Pitchford's class were treated with the "BIG KIDS" reading to them about different job opportunities. Career-connected learning at its finest!
We celebrated Red Ribbon Week 2022 at Pinkston Middle School a couple weeks ago! Our finale included a presentation on the dangers of vaping by Registered Respiratory Therapist Shelby Chapman and our amazing SRO, Danielle Campfield along with K9 Officer Rocky, presented on the dangers and legalities of alcohol and drugs. Thank you, Officer Campfield, for all the “Cycle Breakers” you recruited at this event! What a powerful way to make a difference in the lives of our students. The students also watched an intense video on the dangers of fentanyl. Eye opening! We love our students! Celebrating Life Drug Free💙💛
Does my child do the same things other children his or her age do? Some children need help walking, talking, seeing, hearing, or learning. Child Find is a legal requirement that schools find all children who have disabilities and who may be entitled to special education services. If you feel your child needs help, contact the professionals at your local school district or the Arkansas Special Education Resource Center (ASERC) at 1-800-482-8437. Special education services are available to all eligible children birth to 21, in both public and private, including children who are highly mobile, homeless and wards of the state. Early detection is the key to helping your child get off to a good start. Getting help today prepares your child for future success. For more information call the Mountain Home Public Schools Special Education Department at (870)425-1247. www.archildfind.org

Hey Everyone! Just a friendly reminder that we no longer take transportation change requests after 2:45pm everyday. We have a busy afternoon routine and for the safety of our students and getting them in the right spot it is easier to have a cut off time to allow us to direct them to the right location in the afternoons. We appreciate your cooperation at this time! #GOBOMBERS
