Cub Pride - December 19th, 2014

     What a wonderful time of the year!  The Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons always serve to remind us of the tremendous amount of blessings for which we should be thankful as well as reminding us of the true spirit of giving to those less fortunate than ourselves.  The Monett R-1 School District certainly has a tremendous amount for which to be thankful!  The partnerships we have with our local business and industry as well as local community members provide for virtually every need we have within the district.  I would also be remiss without mentioning the hundreds of hours of volunteer work many of our community members provide for our schools each and every day.  Simply put, your giving nature makes everything that we do possible!
 
     This month I would like to highlight some ways that Monett R-1 staff and students “give back” to the community during this holiday season.  Our district counseling staff has identified over sixty families for the adopt-a-family program.  Within this program, local business and community members can join with Monett R-1 staff to provide Christmas gifts for families in need of assistance.  Included within this program is the shop-with-a-cop program that combines the efforts of the Monett Police Department with generous community donations to provide a Christmas shopping experience for an additional twenty-three students in our school district.
 
     Each Christmas season Monett High School sponsors the Miss Merry Christmas assembly, inviting young children from the Barry-Lawrence County Developmental Center to attend and enjoy the music and student performances provided by our fine arts departments.  Our high school students also raise funds during the year to purchase Christmas gifts for the children who attend this assembly.
 
     Last but certainly not least, many of our buildings participate in canned food drives this time of year to assist the various food assistance programs in our local and surrounding communities.  The students at Scott Regional Technology Center organize each year a tremendous canned food drive.  Students from each of our fourteen sending school districts participate in this worthy cause, and this year the items collected will be donated to the Ozarks Food Harvest.  Similar canned food drives are scheduled at Monett Middle and Intermediate Schools this holiday season.  These canned food drives also remind me of the great work being done by Monett R-1 staff in the ongoing backpack program.  This program sends home backpacks of food to families in need of assistance each and every Friday afternoon to supply families with extra food over the weekend. 
 
     Each of these programs is a great reminder and positive example to our young people of the importance of “giving,” especially during this holiday season.  Once again, we could not make these programs available for our students without your generous support of your time and resources.  Thank you for your commitment to assisting us in being “Student Focused” in addressing student needs even beyond the classroom walls.  This commitment will most certainly provide students with the best opportunity for “Future Driven” success.
 
     Have a wonderful and blessed holiday season!
