    MoASBO members,
    Seven years ago, MoASBO introduced a component to our annual Spring Conference – the LEGACY PROJECT.  
    I am a firm believer that Missouri students have the ability to thrive as a result of our MoASBO members' dedication. YOU, our members, have the unwavering adherence to ensure students' success. That is why I selected an organization that values helping others thrive as well. 
    The American Red Cross helps support humanitarian needs locally. The following donations will be used in comfort boxes for kids: 
    • No tear shampoo 
    • Kids body wash
    • Wash cloth
    • Kids toothpaste
    • Kids toothbrush
    • Small brush or comb
    • Coloring book
    • Crayons – small box is fine
    • Small Stuffed animal
    The drop-off will be located near the MoASBO conference registration desk.
    Thank you in advance for playing an essential role in this year's Legacy Project. I appreciate each member and their donation - it's all about the kids.

    MoASBO Board President

  • Growth

    Posted by MoASBO on 9/26/2022
    As I reflect on this past month, here are some things I've been thinking about:
    First, I'm proud to note that we had one of our largest Missouri groups attending the ASBOI Annual Conference and Expo this year. We enjoyed meeting and collaborating with other school business officials from all across the country.  

    Let's keep the momentum going "locally" by connecting at an upcoming regional meeting and making the commitment to your professional growth as an upcoming conference attendee. 
    I also keep thinking about our role as school business officials and how we impact the success of Missouri students. I want to thank you for your dedication to our students. Our jobs aren't always easy; but, our schools rely on us to stay focused on what's best for kids.
    I hope you have a wonderful fall. I look forward to seeing you at the Support Staff Conference or the Executive Leadership Forum. Registration is currently available on the MoASBO website. https://www.moasbo.org/Domain/4
    MoASBO will continue to be here for you.
    -Mary Jo
