Welcome to Monett Elementary School
Cub Pride - December 12th, 2014
Color Me PAWSitive!
The first quarter ended with a burst of color at MES’s Big Event Color Run. Nurse Sheena Parrigon and our District Wellness Coordinator Alex Hutchings worked hard putting together a wonderful event for our students who had earned enough “brag bands” to participate in the color run on the elementary campus on our new track. (Students earn brag bands by “getting caught” doing the right thing.) There were eight to ten parents who helped shower the color on the runners and to help pass out snacks of fruit and water. We give a big “thank you” to Price Cutter for helping us out with those snacks!
Each quarter students have the opportunity to earn their way to the Big Event by making good choices. Ask your child to tell you what the PAWS expectations are. You can always look on the district website for the matrix with all of the expectations we have here at MES. We will be having a behavior lesson review week (behavior boot camp) the first full week of school in January. More information will be coming home after Christmas break!

ALL PRO DAD's Meeting
Today was our 2nd All Pro Dad's meeting and breakfast. Dads are invited once per quarter to come to school early with their child and participate in a short discussion led by Coach Jeremy Land (MHS boys basketball coach). The focus of each of these meetings is on building relationships and communication skills with your child. Each meeting begins with each father introducing their child and telling the group one thing they are proud of their child for. There is a short video and time for parent/child interaction on the topic for that day. We conclude each meeting with door prizes and breakfast in the cafeteria. If you haven't been a part of this yet, it's not too late! Our next All Pro Dad meeting is set for Feb. 10, 2015 beginning at 7:00 in the commons. We would love to have any dad, grandpa, uncle, step-dad, etc.... who would like to participate with their child!
At MES, we envision a safe environment that works in partnership with our community to ensure student success in the following ways:
*Implementing a school-wide positive behavior support system
*Continually celebrating student/staff success across all areas
*Focusing professional development on specific needs of staff and students
*Providing differentiated, data-driven instruction
*Active involvement in school-sponsored activities
