Cub Pride - March 7th, 2014
The eighth grade Communication Arts class, through the direction of DeAnn Crawford, published an anthology, When I Was Four: The Evolution of My Thinking. The writing pieces were the final project from the Great Speech Unit co-created by Ms. Crawford and Justin Semerad. Students demonstrated mastery of the unit objectives in their writing, which included repetition, allusion, tone, and figurative language. Through assistance of the Ozarks Writing Project (OWP), Ms. Crawford utilized a text structure that prompted students to identify something that was true about life, something that kept them moving through life. The students then examined how this term evolved throughout their lives. The recurring themes about which students wrote centered around love, faith, strength, determination, and family.
Colleen Appel, Ozarks Writing Project associate, shared with Ms. Crawford that the students' writing was of such high quality that she shared the student work with the OWP faculty at Missouri State University. Ms. Appel offered to compile the writings into an anthology and publish a book for the students. This book is also available to view on the Monett Middle School SchoolFusion website (http://monett.middle.schoolfusion.us). Patrons may purchase the paperback for $8.00.

Immunization Required for Incoming Eighth Graders
Whooping cough (Pertussis) is a respiratory disease that can be prevented by adequate immunizations. It is passed from person to person by coughing or sneezing. Symptoms are a severe, prolonged cough that can last for weeks. In small children, the cough may produce a characteristic “whoop” sound, from whence the name comes. It can be a very serious infection in small children, pregnant women, and those with weakened immune systems.
There has been an upsurge in Pertussis among teenagers in recent years, and for that reason adolescents entering 8th grade are required to get a booster immunization called a TDAP before attending school. The TDAP vaccine also provides protection from tetanus and diphtheria. Whooping cough can be passed on to younger, inadequately immunized children by adults, who may experience a milder form of the disease. For this reason, adults who work with small children and pregnant women are encouraged to get the TDAP vaccine.
