District News

There's a lot happening in our vibrant school district! From events taking place at school to public information notices, we’ve included all the latest events here on one page. Make it your first stop when you visit our website to ensure you are always aware of what’s happening at Moniteau.

Welcome to Our New Website

We are pleased to welcome you to our new and improved, responsive (mobile friendly) website. We are grateful to the many district and school staff members who worked together to envision a website that reflects how much we care about our students. Our partnership with School Webmasters has made our vision a reality. Working with School Webmasters also helps us keep our websites ADA compliant for those with disabilities. We hope you’ll check back in with us often!

Safety First

With the advent of so many violent acts in schools, we, as a district, are committed to ensuring the safety of every student and staff member who walks through our doors. Our board of directors recently approved the hiring of full-time police officers to help monitor our halls and protect our students. We are also installing metal detectors at our front entrances to screen every visitor who enters our school buildings. 

These changes may affect some of our other policies and procedures, but we’ll be sure to communicate those changes as soon as they are finalized. We appreciate your patience as we implement these changes for the safety and security of our students and staff.

Study Tips for Your Child

Is your son or daughter having a hard time getting to the "studying" part of the day? Getting back into the groove of the school routine can be a challenge, but we have some resources that just might help.

GreatSchools.org offers tips to help your child prepare for a successful study session. Simple tips such as how to organize a study space, planning time to study, and having the proper study materials can go a long way toward helping your child be successful. For more detailed information about how to help your child develop and practice good study habits, please visit GreatSchools.org.

If you prefer a hands-on approach, then you may want to refresh your memory on the topics your son or daughter is learning. A good place to start is the Internet Public Library or Khan Academy, which has a wealth of information and research materials you and your child can use to advance learning. 

For younger children, studying the traditional way might not be working. Take a look at Fun Brain for an interactive approach to studying. Don't let the fact that it's full of games discourage you from letting your child go there. Educational games engage your child while reinforcing basic skills in math, reading, science, and more. Even by playing games kids learn—and all learning is good!
