  Welcome to the

  Carthage R-9 School District

Inspiring Excellence

Attention incoming 5th grade students:

On August 6 the Carthage Middle School will be having a “Mix and Meet” event for the incoming 5th grade students.  Please join the CMS staff for get-to-know-you games, raffles, food, and fun!  You will have the opportunity to tour the school, meet new (and old) friends, meet new teachers, and end the day with a family cookout. 

The fun for our in-coming 5th graders will begin at 10:00 AM.  Their families are welcome to join us at 12:00 for a cookout.  A light lunch will be provided. 

If you would like to attend, please call the school and let us know so we can be sure to have enough food.  Our phone number is (417)359-7246. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

Mr. Ragsdale and the CMS Staff
