Sipping on smoothies…taking a break with a yoga class…browsing the fresh fruits and veggies in a farmers market. It may sound like a day off for some, but it’s actually part of a new activity at McDonald County Schools. Opaa! Foods, the food service company of the school district, is hosting “Spring Into Wellness”. It’s a traveling health fair featured at every elementary and primary school across the district. For several days next week, students will have 8 different learning stations to stop where they’ll learn about health and get some giveaways. Some of the stops include a smoothie station, a yoga stop, a farmers market, a milk station, and even a plant-your-own-seed station! It’s all in an effort to help students make smart choices about their health. See the schedule of schools on the attached graphic. Just another way McDonald County Schools are making a difference in every child, every day, whatever it takes! #EveryDayMCS #OpaaFoods #SpringIntoWellness #HealthFairForKids

Talk about some big money…well actually a big check! Members of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals team from Freeman Health System were at McDonald County High School for a check presentation. Students in the National Honor Society raised $1,100 for CMN by hosting a color fun run called Nora’s Run. It’s in honor of Nora Beachner, the daughter of school counselor Joseph Beachner. Nora is a CMN Ambassador who has a rare condition that requires constant medical treatment. The money will go to help CMN give assistance to families all across the area. Just another way our students are going above and beyond to make a difference in every child, every day, whatever it takes! #everydayMCS #CMNH #FreemanHealthSystem #NorasRun

A familiar face and a newcomer are taking their places at the McDonald County Schools Board of Education table. Incumbent Frank Woods and newly elected member Bob Campbell were sworn in at last week’s School Board meeting. Woods is serving in his 15th year as a school board member. Campbell will be serving his first term. Both were elected earlier this month from a field of five people running for the two open seats. They will serve a 3-year term on the board. Thanks to both men for wanting to serve McDonald County Schools and make a difference in every child, every day, whatever it takes!
