School Based Social Worker

The Gasconade County R-1 School District employs a full-time Social Worker.  The social worker offers the bridge between family and school as well as the community resources.

The School Social Worker is in charge of three programs, Back To School Supply Program, The Buddy Pack-Backpack Food Program and Community Christmas.

Back To School Supply Program offers school supplies to all students that are in need of assistance.  This program provides all necessary items to start the school year off right!

Buddy Pack-Backpack Program offers nutritional food to help supplement students for the weekend.

Community Christmas is a program that helps to provide gifts to students for Christmas.  The community can get involved by adopting a family and a wish list is provided to those individuals who are wanting to give during this special time of year.


*For any family or student that feels they are in need of assistance contact Mrs. Dawn Grosse at 573-486-3121 x 1315 or email
