How do you celebrate 95.3% attendance rate at Conway MO High School? You have the principal sleep on the roof, of course!

Conway MO High School

This year has brought a new High School principal, a new Junior High principal,a new Elementary School principal and a new Superintendent to Laclede County R-1 schools in Conway Missouri. A few new faces and a few familiar faces in new spots has brought a new life to the district and ... a little more FUN.

The High School principal, Mr. Reeves, has helped revitalize our school spirit. He introduced our new slogan:

It's a great day to be a Conway Bear!

Mr. Reeves, and the Junior High principal, Mr. Lowrance, recently challenged students to exceed last year's attendance numbers: 95% for the year 2007/2008. (The state average for the same time period: 92.2%)

The students met that challenge - 95.3% for the second quarter of 2008/2009 - and the two principals find themselves paying up by sleeping spending the night up on the roof of the high school. They climbed up to the roof top at 7 pm tonight and will stay until 7 am tomorrow morning.

No rain or snow tonight; only a little wind. And, a rumor or two of water balloons. . .   Conway MO weather

I can't help but wonder if Mr. Reeves still thinks It's a great day to be a Conway Bear!

haha... this is great Debbie.  It's also a cool night to be sleeping up on the roof.  Yikes.  Hopefully those fellows took some warm clothes.

Jesse - I'd say they came well prepared. My kids tried to talk me into driving over to school to check out the scene but I didn't go. Probably should have...

Don - I haven't talked to any of the high school kids yet. I'd say they didn't let the night go by without a little fun, water or otherwise!  :)

Debbie, How funny. Well at least it is not that cold and maybe the kids will let them have a tent and a sleeping bag or two...

**** Merry Christmas ****
