   Telemedicine Coming to Monett Intermediate/Middle Schools

     Whether it’s because of time or finances, sometimes it’s a challenge for parents to connect ill children with proper healthcare.  That’s why, thanks to a grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health, CoxHealth is bringing healthcare to the students. Soon, sick kids can be seen right at school via telemedicine for acute ailments such as sore throats, chronic coughs, and the flu.
     Over a three-year period, CoxHealth will place mobile telehealth carts in six elementary schools—Cassville, Forsyth, Monett, Mountain Grove, Ozark, and Reeds Spring—across six counties in order to connect select children with providers via telemedicine.  The providers include nurse practitioners aboard the C.A.R.E. Mobile, a mobile pediatric clinic sponsored by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.  Parents will be able to participate in the visit either in person or by phone or video using a smartphone (or other video-enabled device) without having to leave work or home. 
     The service is voluntary and is completely free while this method of healthcare is piloted.  If a diagnosis is made...

      METC Presentation

      Josh Carter and Kourtney Brown are no strangers to the Midwest Education Technology Conference (METC), held in St. Charles, Missouri.  They have each attended the conference multiple times; however, this year they were guest presenters.  Mr. Carter and Mrs. K. Brown presented “Effective Communication in the Tech-Ruled Classroom.”

       In their presentation, they outlined the ways in which they maintain communication between parents, students, and other teachers.  The team teaching duo uses Trello, Class Dojo, Google Classroom, Seesaw, and Google Drive.

      Mr. Carter and Mrs. K. Brown use Trello (a to-do list) to organize students based on skill, assign tasks for PLC collaboration, and as a “Where are You?” check out system for leaving the room.
Class Dojo (a behavior tracking system) is used to communicate with parents by sending direct messages much like a text as well as publishing class stories for parents to view...

       Learning for the Future



     English Language Learners (ELLs) at Monett Elementary are engaged in a three-month-long learning enterprise, Project-Based Learning (PBL).  Most specifically, 1st and 2nd grade ELLs are focused on the goals, standards-based content, and critical thinking skills necessary to solve open-ended inquiry.  Their project is framed by a driving question:  What activities can we do at a parent activity night to raise money for an educational scholarship for a graduating ELL student at MHS?
     Students had been introduced to the big question during a PBL launch.  This driving question gives the students a challenge and a sense of purpose.  Keynote speakers David Valenciano and Daniela Rodriguez shared their background stories and how getting a solid education can be significantly beneficial for bilingual students.  Both speakers are graduates of Missouri Sate University and current staff at Monett R-1.  They urged the students to learn more about what college can do for themselves and their families.
