Welcome Back Parents

Dear Parents/Community Members,

It is with great pride that I and the entire staff of the Drexel R-IV School District welcome everyone as we draw near to the start of the 2015-16 school year. It is truly an honor and privilege for me to begin my 6th year as the Superintendent of the best school district in the state. I am looking forward to continuing to work with students, staff, parents, and community members in all capacities. Opening a new school year enforces my belief that we have wonderful opportunities to make a difference in the lives of our students and that we are extremely fortunate to live in a community that values education. As we begin this school year, please know that it takes exceptional staff, informed parents and involved community members to create the best possible arena for learning.

Drexel Foundation

The purpose of this endeavor is to support the Drexel R-IV School District in its educational programs, activities, and graduates with their post-graduate pursuits by providing a tax-exempt organization which serves as recipient and protector of all donations.

Established as a private organization, separate and apart from the school district but working directly in conjunction to serve students needs, the Drexel Public School Foundation serves as recipient and administrator of donations for students and teachers.

Each year the Foundation awards several teacher grants for supporting unique instructional strategies, improving direct instruction, and providing scholarships for college-bound students.
