It’s stories 📖 instead of snacks🍫! 👉 The new book vending machine is a hit at Noel Primary School. Students, teachers, and members of the McDonald County Schools Foundation cut the ribbon✂️ to officially open the machine for business. Right after the ribbon cutting, several students got their first books out of it. 📚 The machine was paid for through a matching grant from the Foundation and fundraisers from Noel Primary. Funding for the books was even donated by local businesses and community members. Students get coins 🪙 for doing good things and then redeem them for books in the machine. They didn’t waste any time. Right after getting the books, the kids sat down and started reading! ⬆️ That's way better than a candy bar! 🍫 Just another way McDonald County Schools are making a difference in every child, every day, whatever it takes! #WeAreMacCounty #MacCountyStrong #BookVendingMachine #NoelPrimarySchool #ReadingIsCool

😲 A one-of-a-kind opportunity is brewing with McDonald County Schools! ⬇️ Students in the high school’s Supervised Business Experience class got their first look at what is going to be a student-designed and operated coffee shop! ☕️ The project is in partnership with the McDonald County Student Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber recently remodeled its office on Pineville’s square, leaving space for a coffee shop that will be designed and run by the SBE students. 👍 The project is being funded by a grant from T-Mobile awarded to the Student Chamber. Students took pictures, measured, and dreamed about what this space could look like. Their next task is to draw out concepts of the shop. They’ll be back for another visit for more ideas in a couple of weeks! 👀 We’ll be watching and waiting for a great cup of coffee! 😋 Just another way McDonald County Schools are making a difference in every child, every day, whatever it takes! ❤️🖤 #MacCountyStrong #WeAreMacCounty #StudentRunCoffeeShop #Coffee #CoffeeShop #SomethingGreatIsBrewing

It’s specialized schooling for some McDonald County educators. Teachers who work in the Special Education Department of the McDonald County School System recently received training as part of their preparation for the new school year.

They cover all grades, from early childhood classes all the way through high school. We are so grateful for these men and women and the job they do making a difference in every child, every day, whatever it takes.
