Our First grade students went on a field trip to Knowlan Family Farms and learned all about apples and the other different fruits they grow there. 🍎🍏
They learned about how apples grow, the different kinds of apples, and what they use apples for. Students also had some fun and got to bounce on the apple pad, drive some pedal carts, and meet the goats and donkey! 😄 A great time was had by all!

BIG NEWS, TIGER FAMILY!
Cape Central High Swimming and Diving Head Coach Dayna Powell has been named the Missouri Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association's (MISCA) 2021-2022 Girls Class 1 Coach of the Year!
Congratulations, Coach Powell! We are so proud of you!
Every job within our school district is crucial to the health and success of our students. Without cafeteria staff, we cannot feed our children.
As you likely know, a number of our students depend on the school to provide two nutritious meals a day because their home situation does not provide this for them.
Some of our students only eat while they are at school.
Let that sink in.
If you are looking for a meaningful way to give back, please consider applying to work in one of our cafeterias. YOU WILL BE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
We need your help!
Apply today: https://capegirardeau.tedk12.com/hire/ViewJob.aspx?JobID=80
