Congratulations, Drew Howell, Sawyer McElveen, and Justin Morris who placed 2nd in the Sports and Entertainment Management Event at the Missouri Future Business Leaders of America State Conference. They will advance to the National FBLA Conference this summer in Atlanta, Georgia.
Students in Ms. Amy's Career Pathways for the Teaching Profession class visited SEMO to learn more about life on campus as an Education major. All the students enjoyed a walking tour of the campus, an informational meeting with an admissions advisor, and a complimentary lunch at Towers Landing. Everyone was thrilled to run into "Honeybun", an NMCC Alum, and hear how much he was enjoying his college experience.
Due to the severe weather threat that will be in our area this afternoon and the timing from the National Weather Service. NMCR-1 Schools will dismiss at 1:30 pm. We want to assure that our students and staff are home safe and to allow busses time to return to campus. There will be no afterschool activities, practices or tutoring.
Mr. Danny's Welding class recently created this for the New Madrid Fire Department. It will be used to set their fire gear on.

The NMCC High School Boys’ Basketball team has advanced to the Missouri Class 3 State Boys Basketball Championships. They will compete at the Great Southern Bank Arena, 685 S. John Q Hammons Pwy Springfield, MO 65807. Because of this accomplishment, the New Madrid County R-1 School Board has graciously agreed to dismiss school on Thursday, March 9, 2023, at 1:15 PM and Friday all day so that students and community members can make travel arrangements to attend this great competition to support our athletes. This has traditionally been done so that all that want to attend may do so. Those that want to attend the competition may buy tickets on the Missouri State High School Activities Association website. https://www.mshsaa.org/CMSPages/Tickets.aspx More details will be released next week.

NMCR1 Tech Skills: $400,000 Grant! Important upgrades to NMCR1 Tech Skills Center will continue thanks to a $400,000 grant that will provide long-overdue air-conditioning for 4 TSC shops (auto mech, welding, ag, & carpentry). This grant will be combined with a previously awarded grant (DRA) to replace ALL A-pod rolltop garage doors (circa 1971) with new, industrial, insulated panel doors and openers. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has awarded several Missouri Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs including New Madrid County R-I Technical Skills Center ($400,000.00) with grant dollars to further support the important work that these programs do to ensure all Missouri students are prepared for success upon graduation and further contribute to developing Missouri’s workforce. Missouri’s Area Career Center Opportunity (MACCO) Grant provides funding to enhance the state’s CTE capacity by providing more opportunities for CTE students while updating and modernizing career centers’ infrastructure and equipment. MACCO is funded through the American Rescue Plan Act (APRA) and grants local education agencies (LEAs) up to $400,000 to: Create new high-demand and emerging programs Construct a new area career center building Renovate or build an addition to an existing area career center Update or expand current CTE programs Improve infrastructure for safety and equipment needs Upgrade equipment and instructional technology The grant’s funds must be used to enhance or extend area career centers’ capacities to increase students’ knowledge and skills needed to gain employment in current or emerging fields, continuing their education, or re-training for new business and industry opportunities. The grant required LEAs to submit an application and match 25 percent of the awarded MACCO funds. NMCR1 appreciates this support as we continue to provide a viable technical skills program!
