Proposed 2022-2023 District Calendar

A draft copy of the 2022-2023 district calendar was presented during the January monthly school board meeting. Next school year’s proposed calendar will be very similar to this year’s district calendar.

Here are some highlights from the proposed calendar:

  • The school district’s first day of school will be on Tuesday, September 6th. The late start to the school year is again due to the construction at the middle school.
  • We’ll continue to have early dismissal every Wednesday at 2 p.m. throughout the school year for staff professional development.
  • Thanksgiving break will be November 23rd-25th.
  • Winter break will be from December 23rd-January 2nd. There will be no school for students on Tuesday, January 3rd, due to a staff professional development day. Students will return to school on Wednesday, January 4th, 2023.
  • High school finals and end of the second quarter will be on Friday, January 20th, 2023.
  • Spring break will be March 27th-31st, 2023.
  • High School Graduation will be on Sunday, May 21st, 2023.
  • There will be no school for students and staff on Friday, April 28th, 2023.
  • The scheduled last day of school will be on Friday, May 26th, 2023.

National School Counseling Week: February 7th-11th, 2022
Last week was National School Counseling Week. This week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

School counselors provide a wealth of support throughout a student’s academic career. As a counselor, they help students when they face adversity such as bullying, trouble at home, academic performance, and relationship issues. Counselors also listen to students’ interests and assess their skills and personality to help them decide their future academic and career goals.

Thank you to our amazing counselors and everything they do for our students!

Congratulations to Southern Boone’s Lila Frazier for participating in the Missouri All-State-Choir January 26th-29th at the Lake of the Ozarks. Lila not only passed all rounds of auditions to reach the Missouri All-State Choir, but was also Southern Boone’s first soloist in the performance in the past 20 years.

Students must earn placement in the Northeast Missouri All-District Choir and must be a junior or senior to have the opportunity to audition. Each year in the Northwest District of MCDA, there are 24 available spots (4 representatives and 2 alternates per voice section) for students to earn placement.
