A Message from Our Superintendent

Our mission is to prepare Moniteau students to achieve their fullest potential as they face the challenges of life.

Welcome back!

On behalf of the administrators and staff, I would like to welcome our students back for a new school year. We look forward to working with our parents and students to make this year a rewarding and memorable experience. As you will notice, there are many new initiatives that we are introducing this year. Some of the changes include:

New Initiatives

  1. The installation of metal detectors at both Dassa McKinney Elementary and Moniteau High School. 
  2. An upgrade to our communication plan and devices.
  3. Implementation of Skyward (our new student management software program.)
  4. Implementation of a new website (
  5. Initiation of Google domain for students and staff.

We understand that with any new initiative, communication with students and families is very important. We will keep everyone up-to-date as we implement our new changes.

New Staff
Please help us welcome new staff members to the Dassa McKinney and Moniteau family. Welcome Jennifer Walters (school nurse), Staci Bettencourt (school librarian), and Meghan Guntram (fourth-grade teacher.) Welcome!

I would also like to welcome our new full-time school police officers: Garrick Lapusnak, Tom Palla, and Brad Koscinski. These officers will be visible during school hours to support the safety and security for our students and staff.

Finally, I want to encourage all our parents and families to be active and collaborative participants in their students learning. Please read to your children, ask about their day, and be an advocate for their learning. I strongly believe in having open and transparent communication between home and school. If there is ever a question or concern about something happening at school, please first reach out to your son/daughter’s teacher. I am confident that there is a solution to every problem. My hope is that each and every student at Moniteau has a wonderful and rewarding school year. Please share with me your questions, concerns, celebrations, and suggestions. Go Warriors!
