WELCOME TO MONETT INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL
Cub Pride - December 12th, 2014
Monett Intermediate School fifth graders in Mrs. Cox and Mrs. Powers’ classes are partnering with Judy Seawell, SLP, to learn sign language so they can better communicate with a classmate. Fifteen of these students are practicing so they can “sign/sing” a Christmas song. The following students are participating: Jimmy Agustin, Azael Avelar, Gabriela Alamaraz, Leo Vargas, Anahi Almaraz, Santanna Rodriguez, Edgar Salas, Paige Copeland, Adriana Contreras, Marlene Morales, Jisell Canales, Layla House, Victoria Lopez, Anna Long, and Espn Crockett. Our “sign choir” will be performing at our Cubpella concert on December 11, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. in the MMS auditorium. We invite you to attend this exciting concert.
MIS has added Student Council (StuCo) to its after-school menu of activities. Homeroom students nominated candidates, and then students voted for their student council representatives. StuCo meets weekly with Mrs. Huntress and Mrs. Carden. Their focus is to develop leadership skills and to provide service to their community—school and beyond. So far this school year, StuCo organized, set-up, and were responsible for securing parent volunteers to work at the book fair. In addition, StuCo students made holiday placemats and delivered them to Loaves and Fishes and Lacoba Nursing Home.

Laptop Parent Meetings Rescheduled
Parents, We are postponing our Laptop Parent Meetings scheduled for November 20 and 24 and for December 2 and 8. These meetings will be rescheduled in January and February. Thank you for your patience as we prepare to begin our 1:1 Laptop program.
Honor Assemblies at MIS
MIS will no longer have quarter honor assembles. We will, however, have semester honor assemblies. Students who have earned a "3" on each ELA, Math, and Science summative assessment for the semester will receive "high honors". Students who have earned a "3" on each summative assessment in two content areas (math, ELA, or science) will receive honors. Students who receive these honors will have demonstrated proficiency on all summative assessments at grade level. Our first semester honor assembly will be Friday, January 9, 2015 at 8:00 a.m. in our lower gym.
Thank you for donating your Box Tops for Education. We received a check for $393.00! Keep up the great work!
