Dunklin R-5 School District
Home of the Blackcats!

Welcome to another exciting school year! We hope you had a wonderful summer filled with unforgettable experiences. As we embark on this new academic journey together, we are thrilled to announce that this year's theme continues to be:  "It's all about the experience."

At Dunklin R-5, we believe that education is not just about textbooks and exams; it's about creating meaningful experiences that shape our lives. We are committed to providing an environment where every student can thrive, learn, and grow academically and personally.

This year, we are dedicated to enhancing the overall experience for our students. Parents and Guardians, we recognize that your involvement is crucial to your child's success. We invite you to actively participate in our school community, attend parent-teacher conferences, and join our various committees and events. Together, we can create a strong partnership that will foster a love for learning and enable your child to reach their full potential. Together, we will create memories that will last a lifetime.

Once again, welcome to the Dunklin R-5 School District. We are thrilled to have you as part of our school community, and we look forward to an incredible year ahead. Let's make it an experience to remember!
