High School Choir
Congratulations to the Buffalo High School Choir that competed at State Contest on Saturday, April 5th. Vocal music history was made for BHS: it was the first time that BHS was represented with all four competing choirs. The first ever Men's Choir received perfect "1" ratings from all the judges. Women's Choir received a "1" overall, Mixed Chorus received a "2" overall with a "1" in sightreading, and Chamber Choir also received all "1" ratings. The students have been working extremely hard all year long and their dedication certainly paid off. Go singing Bison!
Powers to Join School Board
Final but unofficial results from the April 8 School Board election show that Suzanne Powers will be joining the Dallas County R-I School Board of Education at their next meeting on April 21.  Along with Powers, two current school board members were re-elected, David Beltz and Kirby Vest.  Powers will be returning to familiar territory as she taught for over 30 years at Buffalo High School as a vocal music teacher.  School board terms are for three years.

Bison Win Duet Acting District Title
Congratulations to Buffalo High School's own Gabe Meraz and Tyler Middleton for winning the Missouri State High School Activities Association District Duet Acting Championship at Missouri State University March 1.  Unlike other MSHSAA events, all students, no matter what the size of their schools, compete together for the district championship.  Gabe and Tyler beat out all the other actors from Springfield area schools and will represent our region at the state Speech and Debate tournament to be held at the University of Missouri-Columbia on April 25-26.  Our own Benjamin Walters also made it to finals in Poetry and is 6th in our district.  Great job Bison----you've made us proud!!!
School Calendar 2014-2015
The school calendar for the 2014-2015 school year is now available.  You can download a copy by clicking here.  First day of school will be Thursday, August 14.
Summer School June 4 - 27
Due to all the winter weather this year, summer school will get a late start this June. Summer School in DCR1 will run from Wednesday, June 4- Friday, June 27.  Due to the calendar crunch, Summer School will only be 18 days this year and each day will be a little longer in order to meet the time requirements.  A reminder that during Summer School students from any school district may attend (you do not have to be a DCR1 resident-so students from other schools may attend) and lunch and breakfast are free to all students!


Last Day of School-June 2
We have reached the maximum number of days that must be "made up" due to snow days.  Therefore, you can mark your calendars that the last day of school in DCR1 will be June 2, with an early release at 1:15 p.m.  In addition, there have been changes made to the calendar in relation to end of quarter and progress reports.  Due to snow days, end of 3rd quarter has been moved back to March 14. 4th quarter will now begin when we return from Spring Break on March 24.
Youth Sports Brain Injury Report
MSHSAA has released the first annual Interscholastic Youth Sports Brain Injury Report regarding the impact of student athlete concussions and head injuries and the efforts that have been made to minimize damages from school sports injuries on the MSHSAA website.  This report is located by going to www.mshsaa.org and then going to the SPORTS MEDICINE TAB.
