      Pattonville Early Childhood...Best in State!

      Congratulations to our outstanding Early Childhood staff, parents and students. Saturday, September 29, 2012, Pattonville was selected as the Missouri School Board Association Future Builders Early Childhood Program of the Year. Finalists for this award were Nixa, Park Hill and Pattonville.

      This recognition is part of the annual Missouri School Boards Association conference held at Tan-Tar-A Resort at Lake of the Ozarks. School board members and superintendents from around the state attend the conference to learn about critical issues, study best practices (including learning from other school districts) and meet board member continuing education certification requirements.

      Saturday morning, Laurie Wenzel, along with Early Childhood directors from Park Hill and Nixa, presented about their programs to a panel of judges. Also in attendance were board members and superintendents from throughout Missouri. The winner was announced at an afternoon session.

      This is a very prestigious honor and the Early Childhood program can say with certain proof they are THE BEST Early Childhood Program in Missouri.
