Last April, DESE (the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Schools) announced that the Bowling Green R-1 School District received the Missouri Purple Star Schools designation. The Purple Star Schools Program was new last year to Missouri, and it is a true honor for the District to be recognized in such a way. Designated schools will receive a purple star recognition from DESE to be displayed in the buildings as well as on each school website.
The qualifications to receive this type of designation are rigorous. As a District, we recognize the efforts of our staff to serve and honor our veterans annually through showcases in buildings and our annual Veterans Day program at BGMS for the veterans in our community. We were thankful for a very good turnout today! We also have required training for our staff regarding how to best serve our current military families. On Veterans Day, we want to say THANK YOU to our veterans in our community, our currently serving service men and women and their families in our community and our current staff members who have served honorably in the Armed Forces. #BGBOBCATPRIDE
