We have a special visitor in town! Dr. Hanson, a former Monett Superintendent, now in Pittsburg, KS, made a trip to Monett with Pittsburg Community Schools USD 250 colleagues to learn more about our GO CAPS program. Dr. Hanson, along with Dr. Jungmann, started the GO CAPS Program back in 2015. Students in the GO CAPS program have the opportunity to learn by immersing themselves in projects with an industry they are passionate about. GO CAPS prepares students for academic, personal, and career success. Thank you, Dr. Hanson, for visiting Monett and bringing your colleagues to learn more about the GO CAPS program.

Our Auto Technology Program received a generous donation from, Ann Spangler, granddaughter of Les Mason. Les established the Ford Dealership in Monett during the 1920's. Ann was in search of something to give back in honor of her grandfather who loved the Monett Community, so in his name she presented our Auto Tech Program with a $500 donation. These funds will be used to create a scholarship for one of our Auto Tech seniors. Thank you Ann for your generosity.

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!

December 4, 2020: Students in 2nd grade had a virtual field trip with the Nature Center. They learned about reptiles, birds, and many other animals. Even though students could not physically visit the Nature Center, they were still able to learn about wildlife. Students saw a real snake and discovered that the scales on the snake's belly protects them from hard and dangerous surfaces.
