ImageMessage from the District Office 
Brad Hanson, Superintendent

        This Friday will mark the end of another school year. My, how time flies! For me, it seems like yesterday that we began the 2012-13 school year. This will make the 28th “last day” of a school year for me as an educator.  In my own mind, this doesn’t seem possible. For those of you who have been in this business as long as I have, I’m sure you feel the same. For those of you in your first few years as educators, trust me; the time will go by much quicker than you realize!
        The end of a school year is an ideal time to think back about your year and to try and digest what just occurred during the 174-day whirlwind journey just experienced. I try to make it a practice each year to reflect on what worked, what didn’t, as well as what things I want to begin working on the upcoming year to ensure that I keep progressing as an educator. I am a firm believer that true, personal growth and persistence towards continued improvement can only come as a result of true reflection of practice.

        The final week at Monett Middle School was full of celebrations! On Tuesday, May 21, students participated in the Dodgeball for Heart fundraiser organized by Amber Holman. There was more than $700 raised from the teams who participated and the spectators who paid admission to watch the competition. Field day was held later on Tuesday with students signing up for different activities. Thank you to Michael Calhoun for organizing the event and to the YMCA for letting us use the inflatables!

Monett High School
David Steward, Principal


        Springtime at the high school level means many competitions not only for athletes, but for academic-related activities as well.  This past April both the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and the National Forensics League (NFL) held state-level competitions for students in multiple events.  MHS was well represented at these events, and, as has become an annual occurrence, each group qualified multiple students to attend their respective national competitions.

        One hundred forty-three (143) Scott Tech seniors recently completed the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) assessment for the first time in school history. The assessments were administered as a part of a new partnership with the Missouri Career Center in an effort to help students in their future job searches in our area as well as the regional and national areas. The NCRC is an industry-recognized credential that certifies essential skills needed for workplace success. This credential is evidenced-based and used across all sectors of the economy.

Monett R-1 Summer Food Service Program
Janie White, OPAA! Food Service Director



Don’t miss out on FREE breakfast and lunch during the summer!!

        Good nutrition is essential for effective learning every day, all year long. Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does the need for good nutrition. Children who aren't hungry learn better, act better, and feel better. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) helps children get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow throughout the summer months. .
