Welcome back Wildcats!
The 2016-2017 school year is here and our students,
athletes, coaches and sponsors have been working hard
to prepare for their seasons. 

Our district has enormous pride in our students and greatly appreciates the support they receive from the community
each year.

Our Cassville coaching family is thrilled to welcome three new faces this year.  Introducing Brandon Cobb, Head Baseball Coach; Jake Forste, Head Soccer Coach and Nathan Fortner, Head Wrestling Coach.  These coaches bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to our programs and we wish them much success.

We look forward to a fun and rewarding year! Go Wildcats!
