Superintendent's Update for June 30th

Dear School of the Osage Students, Families, and Community-   I hope this email finds you well and enjoying summer! Learning has been going strong this past month.

Superintendent's Update for May 19th

Dear School of the Osage Students, Families, and Community-    When I walked up to the podium at graduation on Thursday, I was unprepared for how overwhelming it would be to stand face to face with the reality of what the students, their families, our staff, and our community has accomplished together this past year. Sure, I had some prepared comments acknowledging as much, but it definitely felt different at that moment- almost stunning.

Superintendent's Update for May 5th

Dear School of the Osage Students, Families, and Community-    Osage students are ending this year strong. The national news seems intent on delivering a narrative that doesn’t begin to tell the story that has been our shared experience locally.  And at the end of the day, that is ok. They can get it wrong out there. Because here in mid-Missouri, our students are living a better story. This was a collective effort:   OUR STAFF worked endlessly, and OUR COMMUNITY supported tirelessly to ensure that OUR STUDENTS did not have their schools closed, their seasons canceled, or their rites of… read more Read More >>

Thanks to the generous support of our community, Cummings Auditorium was renovated in 2018.  You can access the… read more Read More >>
