Kindness is what is shown by Camdenton R-III educators and staff. Their monthly payroll deductions combined with an annual match from the Camdenton R-III School District Education Foundation, Inc. provide educators with support in a variety of ways for items that fall outside of the school’s regular budget.

“We are so excited and thankful to receive this Classroom Impact Grant,” radiates educators Whitney Dinsdale and Dawn Moore. “We will be purchasing books for our new book vending machine at Hawthorn Elementary, Camdenton R-III School District. “Every student will receive a book on his or her birthday beginning next school year. Students can also earn books by meeting goals, showing leadership and being kind.”
