    Robotics Teams Advancing to State


    At the November 18 regional FIRST Lego League qualifier, three Nixa Big Bot teams (robotics teams) were selected to compete at the state robotics competition in Camdenton on December 16. They will need a few thousand dollars to cover registration, hotels, and supplies for the competition. Donate at the link below to help them make it to state. Your donation is tax deductible.
    • Coco Cats (teal): This team was selected for Innovative Solution. Their idea for solving a global clean water crisis in third-world countries truly has the potential to help improve the lives of countless people around the world. It is extremely well thought out and every team member went above and beyond to research on their own so they will all be informed and able to answer any questions the judges may come up with. 
    • Taco Tigers (tie-dye): This team was selected for Teamwork. This team overcame obstacles, made sure to include every team member in decisions, and worked hard to understand and appreciate each other's strengths and weaknesses. 
    • Storm Dragons (blue): This team was selected for Programming. The judges were impressed with the creative and eloquent programming techniques of this team made up of veterans and new members.

  • Letter to Parents/Guardians: How the District Communicates with You


    Nixa Parents/Guardians,


    We want to make sure that you are getting the communication you want and need. Here is how we are going to communicate with you:


    1. The district app is going to be our main method of communication to get information to you. This will allow you to get detailed information send directly to you on the app and get alerted (if you have them turned on) when new information is sent out. To download the app on your iPhone or Android, go to the links below. Once downloaded, make sure and go into notifications and Follow Schools and choose Nixa Public Schools as well as your child’s school.


         a. Download or update it at the following links:


    2. If you have not been getting emails from the district, make sure you have information added to receive alerts from the district through email. This is an additional screen on the information update. To update your information or check to see what emails are on the account, go to We cannot control if your email address is blocked by your company or email provider or sent to SPAM. This is why we encourage the app as well.

    5. Inclement Weather Information. It's about time for winter weather to hit.  Make sure you know all the details about our winter weather procedures. We will send out the notifications for no school, late start, or early dismissal through the district app as well as phone calls in addition to the website, social media, and sending the info to news outlets.
