Future Teachers of America and seniors interested in pursuing a career in teaching attended the Missouri Educators for Tomorrow’s Schools Conference at Missouri State University - West Plains. They attended multiple sessions presented by area teachers who discussed what “a day in the life” of a teacher looks like at different grade and content levels.
Early this morning, our bus barn was destroyed in a fire. Firefighters are still on the scene. We were able to move the buses and we will have school today. Buses should run at normal times.
In congruence with their Beginning Teaching Program, a group of second year educators spent an amazing day with Mike Rutherford, author of The Artisan Teacher: A Field Guide to Skillful Teaching. It was a great day of learning and collaboration.
Our awesome MVBT office staff met for lunch to celebrate the completion of a huge task they recently finalized. At the beginning of this school year, the office staff worked tirelessly to transition to a new student information system. Then, due to challenges beyond our district’s control, the office staff had to transition back to the previous system. Since the beginning of this school year, they have spent hours at their computers getting all of our student and teacher data perfected! Our office staff have conquered a task that is nothing short of miraculous! These ladies are greatly appreciated, highly respected, and absolutely the best!
Throughout the year we will be recognizing our awesome Eagle staff members. Here are the days we are going to designate as Eagle Recognition Days for the 2022-2023 school year. (We have tried to schedule these days to reflect national or state recognition days. )
Dear Parents. Some of our older students who ride a bus from Birch Tree Elementary to the middle school and high school have found it difficult to have enough time to eat breakfast before needing to go to their first class. To help alleviate this time crunch, the last bus to leave Birch Tree Elementary to take students to the high school and middle school will depart at 7:25 am starting on Monday, Oct. 17. If you drive your child to the school to catch this bus, please make sure that you get them there prior to 7:25. Thanks!
We would like to honor one of our LMS students for being the September Student of the Month award winner given by Andrea McNew, Shelter Insurance! Kierstyn Mayer is a wonderful student that puts her best foot forward every day & we appreciate her! Enjoy your gift card, Kierstyn!
Don’t forget that today is a half-day of school due to Homecoming. We hope to see everyone at the parade at 2:00. The Homecoming ceremony starts at 6:00. Eagles vs. Panthers at 7:00.
Each month, Andrea McNew from Shelter Insurance presents an LHS student with a Student of the Month certificate and gift card. For the month of September, Levi Roberts, a senior, was awarded the certificate for being a respectful student. Congratulations, Levi, and thank you Shelter Insurance!
Good morning, from a few retro LMS teachers. These teachers have really gone above and beyond to show their Eagle Spirit! Don’t forget that school dismisses early tomorrow (half day) for our Homecoming parade. We hope to see everyone at the parade at 2:00! The Homecoming ceremony is at 6:00 and the Eagles will face the Panthers at 7:00.
Don’t miss this. MVBT families living in Shannon, Texas, or Howell county are welcome to attend.
