CARE Mobile Returns To Buffalo
The CARE Mobile will return to Buffalo, December 14, 2015 at Mallory Elementary.
The Dallas County School District is partnering with The Children's Miracle Network Hospital CARE Mobile program to provide a pediatric service. The Cox CARE Mobile offers FREE basic health services for children from age 2 months through age 18 by a nurse practitioner partnering with local physicians.  The mission of the Cox CARE Mobile program is to provide access to health care for children who have no insurance, do not have a primary care physician or whose parents cannot afford to pay for necessary services.
Appointment scheduling will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 11:30 a.m. Choices of appointment times are not available. The Cox CARE Mobile may choose to opt out of visiting, on any scheduled day, if fewer than five children are signed up. Therefore, appointments are necessary to insure availability of the service.
To schedule an appointment and obtain patient forms, contact Teresa Coltrin at 417-345-2222 ext. 2035 any day school is in session.
Kindergartners and Apples!
To celebrate the end of their apples unit and their study of the fall season,  Mallory's Kindergarten classes recently visited Sunshine Valley Farm in Rogersville.  While there, they learned about the many different varieties of apples, learned how to properly pick apples, and then were allowed to pick some to bring back to school, where they made home-made apple sauce!    
Smoky The Bear Visits Mallory!

Smoky the Bear made an appearance at Mallory on Tuesday.  He visited with the kindergarten classes and discussed fire safety.  After their visit, Smoky stuck around to give high-fives, hugs and to pose for some class pictures.  Thanks for visiting with us Smoky!

BHS Student Council is Helping Kadie get Her Wish

Buffalo High School Student Council is participating in the Kids for Wish Kids program this year. They will be sponsoring 10 year old Kadie from Springfield, MO. Kadie was diagnosed with Scimitar Syndrome. Scimitar or pulmonary venolobar, syndrome is a rare but well-known congenital cardiovascular defect that includes a hypoplastic right pulmonary artery and right lung. This leads to displacement of cardiac structures into the right hemithorax, anomalous systemic arterial supply to the right lung, and a characteristically curved right pulmonary vein.  

When asked what her one true wish was, Kadie stated, “To have a treehouse.” When asked why this was her one true wish she said, “It would be cool to have sleepovers, secret clubs, and parties in it!” Kadie also stated that it would be nice to have a place that was all hers.  

If you would like to help in anyway you can contact Angela Smith at angela.smith@bisonpride.org or Carley Smith at 16smithcarley@bisonpride.us!

Stay tuned to see what events Student Council will be doing to help make Kadie's wish come true!


Transportation "Need to Know"
1.  The transportation handbook is in every child's handbook/planner, as well as on the transportation department webpage.
2.  A home address and one alternate address is all that is allowed. Bus passes for the alternate address must be requested through the child's school office by noon.
3.  All children, 2nd grade and younger must have a parent/guardian visible at the bus stop at drop off time. After three times of not having a parent visible, the child will lose bus riding privileges.
4.  If you live in town, check the new bus stop map. Bus stops have been reduced but not eliminated.
