Mr. Gihring's Consumer Science class is making good use of the tomatoes and peppers they harvested from the school garden by making homemade dulce y picante salsa. 

That's Spanish for sweet and spicy salsa!  Bring on the chips--we're ready to sample!

Oak Ridge R6 is proud to announce that Mrs. Jackie Ludwig was awarded the prestigious Pioneer Award on August 1 in Columbia, MO. 

Each year since 1974, the Missouri State Board of Education and the  Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) have selected a few individuals to be honored as Missouri Pioneers in Education, in recognition of their distinguished careers and contributions to public education, either at the state or local levels.  One of these awards was presented to Jackie Ludwig by the president of the Missouri State Board of Education and the commissioner of education during DESE’s annual summer conference for school administrators.

More than 200 individuals have been named to the select group of Pioneers since the inception of the award.  Recipients are nominated and selection is made by DESE staff and the commissioner of education based on the criteria of unique contributions to public education in the state and/or distinguished and far-reaching careers in education.

Jackie was nominated by the administration for her five decades of service and contributions to the District which includes her 35-year teaching, as well as her service on the Oak Ridge R6 Board of Education for 15 years. 

Thank you Mrs. Jackie Ludwig for all you have done for the school and the community of Oak Ridge, and congratulations on being named one of Missouri’s Pioneers in Education.  Your service, generosity, and dedication have left a lasting impression on the people who call Oak Ridge home and we are extremely proud of you!

The second day of school brought the Oak Ridge Community together to celebrate the 2nd Annual Back to School Splash and Bash.  6th-12th graders had various activities down on the ball fields as well as visiting the community booths.  They had individual and team games.  The teachers came out the winners in the cross country challenge.  K-5th graders were able to visit a bounce house, water slides and community booths.  The day ended with the entire student body gathering in the multi-purpose gym to watch the Class of 2017 take on the faculty in a volleyball game.  The faculty claimed the crown this year!

This event was a major success due to the many people that provided their time and efforts.  We would like to thank the following groups and individuals:  Oak Ridge R-VI Foundation, Oak Ridge Community Athletic Association, Oak Ridge PTO, Oak Ridge Booster Club, Oak Ridge Elementary Basketball Association, and Ron Tracy and crew.  We look forward to continuing this event for years to come!

To start the new school year off the Oak Ridge R-VI school staff hit the road.  The staff loaded up on two school buses to tour the district and visit district patrons.  Staff visited Glueck Enterprises, Fronabarger Concreters, Thomas Farms, Baldwin Racing Engines, and Apple Creek Winery.  At each of these stops district staff were given a tour of the operation and learned what each of these businesses expects from new employees and graduates of Oak Ridge Schools. 

We would like to thank each of these individuals for taking their time to welcome our staff.  It was a great learning experience to see not only where our students live, but also to see some examples of successful enterprises that are located right here within the boundaries of the Oak Ridge R-VI School District.  

 District staff are ready for the tour!  Roger Thomas and grandson Noah Unterreiner speak about Thomas Farms.  Thomas Farms
