Even in the summer, there is still lots of school work. New Madrid County R-1 school officials are busy this summer overseeing the continued renovation of the New Madrid Elementary School. Work includes replacement of the drop ceilings, new floors, new heating and air-condition system, insulation and the replacement of window. The final touch will be new paint throughout the facility.
