We are celebrating Mr. Moreland's life on Saturday, November 7, at 11:00 am at the Burl Fowler Stadium. 

Mr. Moreland led with example. When the pandemic started, he believed in mask-wearing and practicing social distancing to keep everyone safe. Face masks are highly encouraged during the memorial service when social distancing is not an option. 

Educators visiting from out of town are encouraged to wear their school colors to the memorial service. Mr. Moreland loved having friendly school rivalry with the neighboring school districts. Let's show our unity and solidarity by showing school spirit from our neighboring school districts. Monett staff and community are encouraged to wear purple and gold.

Parents, students, and the community are invited to sit on both sides of the stadium. We respectfully ask that all children remain near their parents to avoid distractions during the memorial.

The memorial service will be live streamed through our Monett R-1 School Facebook page. The live streaming will begin at 10:45 am with a slideshow, following the memorial service at 11:00 am.

On behalf of our staff, thank you for the overwhelming kindness and support.

Together, we are stronger.
