CARUTHERSVILLE, Mo. - Classes are wrapping up for Caruthersville students, weeks after other students have already completed classes. "It's probably been one of the most interesting school years a district can have," Superintendent Nick Thiele said.

Students began classes for the 2006-2007 school year September 11th, because of problems with the new, modular classrooms.  A tornado destroyed the high school April 2nd, 2006, along with 60% of Caruthersville.

Thiele says the finishing touches on the designs to the new cafeteria could in place soon.  If that happens, construction could begin this summer.

Thiele is also optimistic about demolition to the high school campus. He believes that might happen this summer as well. "I really think we're on the road to a new high school," Thiele said.

The Class of 2007 graduated May 26th, on the high school football field, in front of new bleachers. Thiele says it is something that turned out be a pleasant surprise for the Seniors. "I know our seniors were thankful. For them to have graduation on the football field, it made their senior year more special."
