Reminder: We will not have school on Monday, January 18, due to a teacher in-service day.
Our School Resource Officers are an asset to the Monett School District. They protect us from harm, are present when needed, and guide us to safety! We rely on our SRO's for more than protection. They build long-lasting relationships with students and guide them through different stages. We are grateful to have an amazing Monett Police Department that ensures Monett stays a great place to live and grow a family. We thank our School Resource Officers and the Monett Police Department for their service to students, staff, and the Monett community!
Today, our students and staff prepared for a POTENTIAL Connected Learning Snow Day tomorrow, Jan. 7. Your student will come home with their school-issued device. We are closely monitoring the weather. If school is canceled tomorrow morning, we will send out a call, text, post it on social media, our website, and share it on the local TV channels. We hope you are staying safe and warm.
GO CAPS students in the STEM strand have been tasked with redesigning specific paint line methods for particular EFCO parts. Believing "effective innovation requires imitation," the students replicated EFCO’s current hanger system to better aid workers’ environments. After creating and discussing ideas with EFCO leadership, the students ultimately applied their proposed improvements to the system. Based on feedback from the final presentation to EFCO leadership, STEM students are confident the new system will be utilized in the workplace. This is an example of the projects students in GoCAPS accomplish. Students did an exceptional job presenting to the EFCO leadership team. Way to go, GO CAPS team!
