We love our assistant principals!
Pinkston students had an April Fool’s day full of laughs. Mrs. Perryman surprised he kiddos with brown E’s. Many classes practiced a “flood drill”. Students and teachers removed their shoes and stood on their chairs to make sure that in the event of a flood their feet would be safe. Next, everybody practiced their paddling skills with by waving their arms just in case the event of a flood occurred at Pinkston.
Ozark Football Association will be meeting at Hickory Park on Saturday, April 2 from 9am-12pm. They will be having sign ups for Football (3rd to 6th Grade) and Cheer (K to 7th Grade).
See you tomorrow, Bombers!
Mrs. Tara Camp's FCCLA and Family Consumer Science Investigation students at Pinkston Middle School have been working on a recycle project that has grown into a community service project. The students have been weaving used plastic grocery bags into sleeping mats for homeless in our community. They have finished four mats and are working on the fifth. Each mat requires around 700 bags to be cut into loops and connected to make a long plastic yarn. Then, the yarn must be weaved into a mat. They have worked very hard, and we are so proud of them! We would also like to extend our gratitude to Paula Lockard, a former Bomber, who heard of our project and donated money to both it and Pinkston! If you'd like to help, please bring your used plastic bags of all colors to the Pinkston front office. Thank you!

A message from Dr. Jake Long: Bomber Families, I want you to know we will be monitoring the radar closely throughout the night. At this time, it looks like there’s a chance we might need an early dismissal tomorrow, and I wanted to give you all time to prepare for that possibility. As this snow system continues to evolve, I will have more definite information and will share it with you as soon as I can. Thank you.
