Phantom of the Opera Highlights


Commitment, Sacrifice, Service
United States Army, Retired Colonel, Bob Barlow, says that these three things are the reasons that U.S. citizens should recognize our veterans on Veteran's Day. Colonel Barlow was the featured guest speaker at this year's Veteran's Day Assembly held in the High School gym.


Far beneath the majesty and splendor of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.

Come join us at CHS for this year's musical Phantom of the Opera November 13-17. Tickets are for sale in the High School Office.

A friendly reminder from your District Health Services Department:
Flu season is approaching please protect yourself and your family by getting vaccinated for the flu.

Super Test Day 2014

Super Test Day for the High School will be on October 8, 2014. On this day the freshmen will be taking the EXPLORE Test, the sophomores will be taking the PLAN 
Test, and the juniors will be taking the ASVAB Test.  The EXPLORE and the PLAN help our students plan for their remaining years in high school as well as help them to explore and make plans for careers after graduation. The ASVAB test measures a student's ability to be trained in specific jobs. 

Our seniors will not be testing on this day. They will be participating in a "Situational Awareness" training led by the National Guard.

As with any testing day, the staff at CHS would like for our students to be well rested, focused and confident on this important day. If you have any questions about Super Test Day 2014 please call the High School.

KC McMullin

KC McMullin, was our 1st grade teachers’ aide for the 2013 – 2014 school year, and we welcome her to own 2nd grade classroom this year.  KC is a Carrollton High school Alumni, graduating in the class of 2010.  She recently earned her bachelors of Science degree in elementary education from Missouri Valley College.  She enjoys spending time with her family and friends.  KC and her husband, Jared, were married this summer and together they have a three year old son, Clayton.  Clayton brings so much joy to their life.  KC says, “Raising a boy is definitely a challenge, but I wouldn’t change the spitting contest and always dirty fingers for anything.”  When KC isn’t spending time with her family, you might catch her taking pictures or reading.  KC and her family are members of the McCroskie Creek Baptist Church.

KC has spent the last four years preparing for this opportunity to teach and could not be more proud to teach here at her alma mater.  Some people can wait a lifetime to discover what they want to do with their life, but KC knew at the age of eight in 2nd grade.  Her teacher, Miss Grider, now Mrs. Aprill Lock, assigned the class to draw a picture of what they wanted to be when they grew up and she drew a second grade teacher.  KC says that she was inspired by every teacher that she had here in Carrollton, and especially by her mom, Mrs. Tammy Johnson.  Carrollton R7 School District is extremely proud of their teachers and staff for inspiring students like KC to follow their dreams.  Welcome Mrs. McMullin!

My name is Vivian Medlock, my family and I moved to Carrollton in May 2014. I have worked as a Title One Aide in Excelsior Springs for 5 years.

I have been married for 17 years and have two beautiful daughters. I love to do crafts and my new found favorite craft is making diaper cakes.

I look forward to working in the Carrollton School district and getting to know people in the community.

New Staff Member Stephanie Pistel

I was born and raised in Sedalia and graduated from Smith Cotton High School.  I currently live in Marshall (with my husband, daughter, and dog), where I began my career in education 20 years ago with Marshall Public Schools.  I started as Bookkeeper and Secretary to the Assistant Superintendent, eventually transferring to the high school guidance office, then the high school principal’s office. More recently I worked at Santa Fe R-X serving as the Accounts Receivable, Guidance, Athletic, and A+ secretary. My new position here in Carrollton is Secretary for the Special Education Department, which I am very excited about. My daughter has just started college at Missouri State University, so my summer was spent helping her to get ready and preparing myself to be an empty nester.  I enjoy being outdoors, and I love to go junkin’ at flea markets, antique shops, thrift stores and garage sales. I am a very creative person and enjoy making one of a kind projects in my studio. I also enjoy organizing closets, storage areas, and whatever else might be a cluttered mess! In my spare time I am also an Avon Representative and a Norwex Consultant. I am thrilled to become a member of the Carrollton R-VII Family!
