Our students have great opportunities to excel in the vocal arts because of our wonderful instructors! A special "thank you" to Mrs. Jeter, Mrs. Carr, and Mrs. Parsons. We appreciate all you do for our singers!
It is Staff Appreciation Week at Maryville R-II! It is hard to find a way to say "thank you" to a group of amazing teachers, coaches, paras, custodians, bus drivers, administrators, office assistants, and maintenance staff. It truly takes a remarkable team to create an incredible learning environment for our students. We are blessed to have this team at Maryville R-II.
A special thanks to our parent groups, churches, and community organizations who have provided meals, decorated schools, and found unique ways to show how much our staff members are valued and appreciated. Maryville is a special place where greatness happens each day, because of the pride we have in our community and our schools.
Last Saturday, six high school students competed in National History Day State Competition in Columbia. Our students did fantastic! Thanks, Mr. Lefeber for your leadership and support for these students.

Our schools and students are so successful because of the strong support we receive from our community and business partners.
GREAT things happening in our FFA program! Jerrica Hess and Landon Liebhart both qualified and competed in State FFA competition on Friday.

We are so proud of both Landon and Jerrica! A special thanks to both Jeremy Lacy and Dillon Stiens for their leadership in preparing our students for these high levels of competition.
We had a great learning opportunity for our NTS Ag students and our early childhood students this week. Our older students brought animals to the MECC, and had a chance to work with our youngest students. What a wonderful way to bring learning to life!
