ImageMessage from the District Office 
Brad Hanson, Superintendent

        This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Each year during this first week of May we honor our teachers for the hard work and dedication they show to the young people of our community. We are truly blessed within the Monett R-1 School community with a truly outstanding group of teachers who strive each and every day to make a difference in their students’ lives. Our teachers live out our district mission, “Student Focused…Future Driven,” each and every day in the classroom. Our teachers truly care for their students. Our teachers understand the responsibility they have daily in encouraging, motivating, and caring for students. This is ultimately what it means to be “Student Focused.”

This Week's Building Level and Departmental Update

Scott Regional Technology Center

Russ Moreland, Director


          The Scott Regional Technology Center Recognition Night was held May 2nd at the Monett High School Gymnasium. One hundred and twenty-two students were recognized as Passport Recipients. These students successfully completed one of the fifteen career and technical programs, achieved a “B” average in their program area with no more than six absences in a program year, and were recommended by their instructor. One hundred and four students were recognized as program completers, meaning they have been enrolled both years in a two-year program.

Princess Fox and Lori Solensky, MHS Counselors

            It is the busiest and most exciting time of the year for the counselors at Monett High School!
            End-of-Course exams (EOCs) began on April 30th and will continue until May 10th. Our district is blessed to be far ahead in technology use so that logistics of the state testing (which are all taken on-line) are extremely manageable. Students who complete the tests claim that the teachers have prepared them well and although the tests take time, they feel confident in their responses.
