Summer School 2017

     It looks like we are enjoying an early spring!  Believe it or not, summer will be just around the corner, and that means summer school!  With so many activities for families that include sports camps, swim lessons, and travel plans, it is sometimes hard to make summer school a priority.  That’s why Monett R-1 is committed to providing flexible summer school options for our students and families.  Students at all levels will have the opportunity to enroll in traditional seated classes, blended, and on-line courses (secondary only). 
     Traditional Summer School:  This looks the most like our regular school year and will operate from
      May 30th through June 22nd, meeting Monday through Thursday (the first week will meet Tuesday
      through Friday) from 7:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.  All students will be served breakfast and lunch free of
      Blended Summer School:  This structure allows students to meet with a teacher once or twice a week
      for direct instruction and to view additional instructional videos throughout the week independently for
      “anytime, anywhere learning.”  For example, students enrolled in Personal Finance or elementary
      blended learning will meet with their assigned teacher once or twice a week for instruction and to check-
      in with each student to ensure course objectives are being met.  Think of it as super tutoring.   After
      meeting with the teachers, students will...

What's Happening at MIS

     Spring is always a busy time of year!  I have several important items to share with you.  First, 6th grade teachers will be trying arena conferencing this month.  Instead of a scheduled time, parents will be able to come in at their convenience and meet with the homeroom teacher plus any other teachers they would like to.  We are excited about trying this new form of conferences.  It will be held on Tuesday, March 21, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the MIS cafeteria.
     Second, ACHT Now! (Access Children’s Healthcare through Telehealth Now) is a school-based telehealth project operated by CoxHealth in partnership with Monett Intermediate and made possible through funding from Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH) and Children’s Miracle Network (CMN).  Telehealth, also known as telemedicine, is a method of providing healthcare remotely using an internet connection, web camera, and specialized medical equipment to connect patients with medical providers.  We are excited to begin offering this service at the MIS campus this spring!  Currently, only grades 5 through 8 will be able to take advantage of this program.  We will have an informational meeting on Tuesday, March 21, at 5:30 p.m., in the MIS library for those with questions or those who want to learn more.  Watch for an informational packet...

 Monett R-1 Departmental Updates
Mrs. Rebecca Merriman, GO CAPS Coordinator



     GO CAPS students have been working diligently all year, embedded in business environments and working with professionals on real-world projects.  For me, right now is the most exciting time of the year.  Students have had both successes and struggles as they’ve been led through this process, but now that they’re seven months into the GO CAPS experience, the fruit of their labor is evident.
     Students are leading business meetings with ease.  They’re creating formal reports on business projects and showing strong collaboration and teamwork skills.  They’re taking initiative to reach out to leaders in the workplace to find solutions to problems or to make networking connections.  They are polished, professional, and confident.
      This growth is most evident as individual passion projects are being developed.  Up to this point in our program, work by student teams has been focused on business projects given to us by local companies.  Passion projects shift that focus and allow students to..
