September 11, 2020: Today, we honor the lives lost nineteen years ago. We will always remember 9/11.
Our Middle School counselors have been visiting students this week. Mrs. Gravett said, "Visiting students help build a strong connection. Relationship building is a foundational piece in providing support throughout the school year."
Lunchtime looks different at Monett R-1, but this doesn't stop students from having fun. Students in Mrs. Bumgarner's class had a dance break after they were done having lunch in the classroom. #monettr1strong
