We love when our little kids partner with big kids! Kindergartners drew pictures showing what they want to be when they grow up and shared them with Mrs. Corales' 6th grade Honors Class. The Pinkston students wrote letters about those jobs and sent them back to the kindergarten. Kindergartners in Mrs. Pitchford's class were treated with the "BIG KIDS" reading to them about different job opportunities. Career-connected learning at its finest!

We celebrated Red Ribbon Week 2022 at Pinkston Middle School a couple weeks ago! Our finale included a presentation on the dangers of vaping by Registered Respiratory Therapist Shelby Chapman and our amazing SRO, Danielle Campfield along with K9 Officer Rocky, presented on the dangers and legalities of alcohol and drugs. Thank you, Officer Campfield, for all the “Cycle Breakers” you recruited at this event! What a powerful way to make a difference in the lives of our students. The students also watched an intense video on the dangers of fentanyl. Eye opening! We love our students! Celebrating Life Drug Free💙💛

Mr. Charles Milling received his honorary diploma from Mountain Home High School today during the annual ‘Freedom Is Not Free’ Veterans Ceremony at MHHS. Mr. Milling was unable to complete his education due to service obligations. We thank him and all veterans for their service.
Every year MHJH partners with The Food Bank of North Central Arkansas to raise money for meals by selling paper turkey feathers to students as a teacher recognition activity. Students purchase feathers for 25 cents each to show appreciation for a favorite teacher or recognize one for going the extra mile. The teacher with the most turkey feathers wins! For the past couple years, our journalism students have gotten to work the crime beat by writing a story about two alleged Turkey Bandits – our very own Coach Shrum and Coach King – who were detained by SRO Holland after being accused of stealing turkeys to win the competition. These coaches were great sports for a great cause and were both eventually exonerated on all charges! We love partnering with local charitable organizations to raise money while also recognizing the awesome work our teachers do for their students. Our teachers all say they appreciate recognition from their students more than any other type of recognition they receive!
The MHHS NJROTC will host its annual "Freedom Is Not Free" Veterans Ceremony on the high school campus in Dunbar Auditorium on Thursday, November 10 at 9 a.m. Veterans will be recognized and honored by students, faculty, community members, and political officials. Patriotic and service branch songs will be performed by the MHHS band and MHHS choir students. As in years past, area veterans and their family members/friends are invited to attend this event. High school NJROTC cadets will perform a 12-man color guard that represents all service branches. The NJROTC will also perform a flag detail, showing how to properly fold a flag and what each of the 13 folds means. During this event, an honorary Mountain Home High School diploma will be presented to a veteran who was unable to complete his high school education due to service obligations.
Does my child do the same things other children his or her age do? Some children need help walking, talking, seeing, hearing, or learning. Child Find is a legal requirement that schools find all children who have disabilities and who may be entitled to special education services. If you feel your child needs help, contact the professionals at your local school district or the Arkansas Special Education Resource Center (ASERC) at 1-800-482-8437. Special education services are available to all eligible children birth to 21, in both public and private, including children who are highly mobile, homeless and wards of the state. Early detection is the key to helping your child get off to a good start. Getting help today prepares your child for future success. For more information call the Mountain Home Public Schools Special Education Department at (870)425-1247. www.archildfind.org
