ImageMessage from the District Office 
Ken Gaspar, Board of Education Member

        The construct of the Monett R-1 Board of Education is no different than any other Board of Education in the state of Missouri, but the way in which we operate is something I hope makes our patrons proud.
        Upon being elected to the board, I quickly learned what it meant to serve the community as a board member. There is a great deal of information to be garnered. We all are required to participate in a 16-hour workshop to learn what to do. What is not taught is “how to do it.”  By this, I am referring to the teamwork, dedication, commitment, and passion needed to be not just successful but the best.

This Week's Building Level and Departmental Updates

Monett Central Park Elementary School
Annette Cozort, Principal



        It’s field trip time for the third graders at Central Park Elementary! This year our students will travel to Diamond, Missouri, for hands-on learning about one of our most famous Missouri figures, George Washington Carver.   This park, dedicated to George Washington Carver, is located and operated by the National Park Service in Southwest Missouri just a short drive from Monett. 
        What do you know about George Washington Carver? Mr. Carver was born on the Moses Carver Farm in Southwest Missouri, two miles west of Diamond, Missouri. As a young, child he became known as the “plant doctor” as he tended his secret garden and worked on the 19th century farm. Mr. Carver became a renowned agricultural scientist, educator, and humanitarian.

Monett R-1 Athletic Director
Daryl Bradley, Director

        What a great time to be a Cub! Next fall you will see many changes in our athletic facilities. We are set to begin construction on the new football turf surface very soon. Along with the turf, we are purchasing new scoreboards at Burl Fowler Stadium, a new softball scoreboard and gym scoreboards at the high school and middle school. The track at Burl Fowler Stadium will also be resurfaced. None of these projects could have been made possible without the generous financial support from several community members and businesses. We are truly grateful for your support! The projects will begin as soon as the track season concludes. We hope to have all the construction completed by August 1st. I am very excited to be a part of a community that exhibits so much support of its school district.
