Help with School Supplies

School supplies will be offered for free Saturday, Aug. 1 from 9:00 a.m. until noon at Drexel United Methodist Church. We would like students to do their own shopping.


If you would like to make a donation contact Ruth May.

Meet the new teachers

Not new to the district but new to positions:  Mrs. Wheeler--Kindergarten, Mrs. Marks--1st grade, Mrs. Holt--2nd grade.  New to the district is Eliza Konrade--5th grade, Bridgette Carpenter-- FACS/Health, Ronda Williams--Science, Dakota Tucker--Vo-Ag/FFA


Although your LMC is closed during the summer, Mrs. Daniel is busy ordering and processing new materials for your return to school.  Did you know there’s a report each June to prepare for Missouri’s Department of Education?  There’s also contacts to make to get all materials returned from last school year and there’s cleaning to be done!

Enjoy your summer days and participate in the Summer Reading Program at the public library--Every Hero Has a Story: Read, Read, Read.  The Program ends with a celebration at 2:00 PM on Monday, July 13,  but reading logs can be turned in as late as July 27.  Come back to school in August prepared to share books and stories with friends and with Mrs. D.

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.
