  • The Food for Thought Backpack Events which will earn money for the Carthage R-9 School students who qualify for the backpack program will kick off this weekend with Baughlapalooza being held at the home of Kelly and Scott Hartley.  
    Events will be held throughout the summer to help feed our hungry students. Our goal is “No child in Carthage goes hungry.”  
    It is the district’s hope that by addressing the hunger issue among some of our students, that the children will remain in school instead of being home sick due to poor nutrition, make good grades, graduate, and become a productive citizen of our community.  
    The Carthage R-9 Foundation, McCune Brooks Healthcare Foundation, and Bright Futures have teamed up to present a summer of fun and fundraising.  
    Gracious hosts and hostesses have put great time and effort into planning outstanding events which are tax deductible to those attending.
