WELCOME TO MONETT MIDDLE SCHOOL!
Cub Pride Article (February 24, 2017) by Jonathan Apostol, Ed. D, Principal
†What's Happening in the Middle † †
† † Even though the winter months can be a lull, exciting things occurred at Monett Middle School!† Each of these activities shows leadership and innovation in action at MMS.
†††† Five students represented Monett Middle School at the First Annual Digital Citizenship Summit at the Southwest Center for Educational Excellence. †Students learned about digital citizenship and its impact on students, teachers, and schools. †From their learning, students established a project to present to the students for the 2017-2018 school year. †Students will also have the opportunity to present at the SWC Technology Summit in July 2017.
†††† This is the second year of robotics at Monett Middle School. †Both Team Nexus and Mystery Machines have had the opportunity to compete in meets to qualify for the state level. †Students have been working on these robots (that must work together with other robots to complete a mission) since September 2016.† During those months, students built a robot according to competition specifications, programmed the robot so that it would work remotely, and performed troubleshooting between rounds to improve its performance for the next round and/or match. †Their hard work came to fruition on February 18th, as Team Nexus competed at a state qualifier. †The team won 18th place and was selected as Judges Choice Award. †Many of these students will continue robotics at MMS and MHS next year.
†††† On February 23rd, 7th and 8th grade students showcased their science fair experiments at the MMS FEMA Shelter and Gymnasium. †Students have been working on applying the scientific method to their own experiments.† They established a problem, determined a hypothesis, gathered data from the experiment, and showed their findings. †Our science department continues to push innovation, as all studentsí science fair projects will be displayed digitally.
†††† We are blessed to be in a building where student leaders are found in different parts of Monett Middle School:† athletics, academics, digital citizenship, robotics, and science fair.† We are also blessed to have students who have determined building needs and want to take on leadership roles. †It might be the quiet school months of the year at MMS, but our students are always looking for ways to be innovative and to lead others.
