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.

We strive to hire quality teachers and invest in the constant evolution of the art of teaching. We are an innovative community with continuous updates and a town full of cultures from around the world. Monett R-I is currently teaching students with different backgrounds and cultures, speaking up to 16 languages across the district. We never stop learning. Everything we do directly affects our students. Professional development helps teachers grow and meet students' needs as new educational and technological advancements become available.

September 21, 2020: Today, we recognize and thank our IT Professionals for their dedication to students and staff. When our school district switched to virtual instruction in the spring, our IT Professionals rolled up their sleeves and got to work. Within a few days, they ensured all devices were ready for students to pick up. When we have technological issues, we know the tech department will have solutions. They are wonderful people to work with, and we enjoy having them around. They share great stories as they fix our tech issues and always leave with a smile. Thank you for being part of the Monett R-1 School District IT department.
Help us keep students and staff safe and healthy by doing a daily health screening before sending students to school! #monettr1
