This summer, our incoming 7th and 8th graders will be hosting the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair and 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair during the last two days of the month. In preparation for this, students have been divided into small groups and given a country that was represented during these exhibitions. It is their job to research the culture, history, impact on the time period, and the exhibit at the Fair in an effort to re-create it for our own Fair. Students have been designing and building their displays to show off their cultural knowledge from the turn of the century.
Staff Sergeant Kevin McCorkedale and Private Felicity Burnett presented to Mr. Verslues' summer school class. They are both in the Marines and came to Monett to talk to students about the Marines.

Students also learned about their uniforms and the day-to-day life of a Marine during Bootcamp. Private Burnett is the first member of her family to join the Marines. She is also one of the first females to train at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego. Thank you, Staff Sergeant McCorkendale and Private Burnett, for presenting to our summer school students.
