        Cub Pride is back with a brand new look for 2013!  Cub Pride is the Monett R-1 School District newsletter designed to give students, teachers, parents, and community supporters a weekly glance concerning events, programs, and matters within the district.  Dr. John Jungmann, former superintendent, initiated Cub Pride in the fall of 2008.  Since its inception, Cub Pride has been emailed to subscribers each Friday during the school year.  We currently have over 335 Monett R-1 patrons who receive these emails on a weekly basis.
