  Cub Pride
Student Focused...Future Driven


Message from:
Mr. Shawn Hayden, Project Coordinator at Cox Monett for the Healthy Schools Healthy Communities Grant

        Walking to school has become a popular activity for children in the Monett community.  Just two weeks ago, over 892 kids walked to school in five days.  Unfortunately, on the following Monday, two children were injured by a car while walking to school.  Thankfully, they avoided serious injury, but it reminds us all that continual education needs to happen to prevent future events of this nature.  
        These successful walking events echo how excited children are to be walking to school.  The City of Monett has been a huge help in all of the Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities (HSHC) efforts.  They are realizing the need for a greater pedestrian infrastructure and providing education for both drivers and pedestrians.  While we have worked hard on creating a safe infrastructure, there are still dangers to those walking and driving.  Below are some tips for those behind the wheel or on the sidewalk.

Monett R-1 Departmental Updates

                                                    STEP 2016

It Is Up To Me!

     In connection with National Hispanic Heritage Month, thirty-seven bilingual students from Monett Middle School traveled to Missouri State University to participate in STEP, or Student Transition Education Program.  This is an annual conference geared to helping students understand the steps it takes to gain admission to post-secondary education.
     The conference provided a peek into the life of the average college student, and local education majors provided tours of the campus.  The soccer fields, residential halls, and the new Foster Recreation Center were favorite landmarks and generated many questions.   The students enjoyed lunch with a mariachi band in Blair Shannon cafeteria, as well as discussions with some of our very own Monett graduates now seeking degrees at MSU.  Throughout the day, conversations addressed leadership qualities, fields of interest, and career aspirations.
     Most empowering was a full session with keynote speaker, Jimmy Cabrera.  Using a backpack as a metaphor, Mr. Cabrera shared the resources students need to be successful.  Personal goals were highly emphasized.  The students were asked to contemplate the obstacles in the way of furthering their education, how to overcome those obstacles, and the support necessary to increase the chances of college readiness.  Much consideration was given to improving current learning opportunities and fostering future life outcomes. 
     Our Monett R-1 students walked away from STEP with a renewed sense of pride and one important key phrase, “If it is going to be, it is up to me!”

Employability Fair 2016
Learning Today for Earning Tomorrow


     Scott Regional Technology Center’s annual Employability Fair is scheduled for Friday, September 30, 2016.  The theme for this year’s Employability Fair is “Learning Today for Earning Tomorrow.”  This one-day event helps set the foundation for a rewarding career for the youth of our community.  The focus of  the Employability Fair will be employer expectations, professional development, and life skills.  Area stakeholders from industry, education, and the community will present to our students, different sessions related to the topics listed above.  We appreciate them giving their time and knowledge to the students of Scott Tech.  We could not do what we do without the support we receive from our communities. 
     Students will attend three sessions each as shown in the schedule below.   Each Scott Tech program is divided into groups that will allow someone to represent the program in every session.  This gives students the opportunity to present to the rest of their class information about the sessions they attend and to hear presentations about sessions they could not attend.  Instructors will use the session information in the discussion of the employability transcript used in all programs at Scott Tech.  This event is sponsored by the Career Services office at Scott Tech and organized by Anessa Brown, Career Services Coordinator.
