📣🌸🌞🎉 HAPPY SPRING BREAK! 🎉🌞🌸📣 Just a quick reminder that McDonald County Schools are out for Spring Break from March 20-24! 🙌🏼🎉 Take some time to relax, have fun, and recharge! 🎉🏖️🌴 We’ll see you back in class on Monday, March 27! 📚👨🏫👩🏫 🌸🌞🎉
🥧 Happy Pi Day and Einstein's Birthday! 🎉 💫 Did you know that Mrs. Scates' Jr. High Math class at Pineville Elementary celebrated this special day with moon pies 🌙, oatmeal cream pies 🍪, Pi-rate hats and eye patches ☠️, and even created amazing cityscapes using the first 25 digits of pi! 🏙️🤓 🏴☠️🧢🌃🏙️ 🧐 But what is Pi and why do we celebrate it? Pi is the mathematical constant representing the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) every year because the first three digits of pi are 3.14 and to honor this mathematical concept and the achievements of Albert Einstein, who was born on the same day. 🎂🎁🎈 Pi Day is a fun way to celebrate the beauty of math and science and to recognize the important role they play in our lives. 🧮 🔢 📚 We are thrilled to see our students engaging in fun and creative activities while also learning about important mathematical concepts. Keep up the great work, Mrs. Scates' class! 👍 🥳🥧🌌📐 🍪🍰📚🎓
📣 Happy #MotivationalMonday everyone! 🔥 Let's start the week with this inspiring reminder from William Butler Yeats: "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." 🔥 We hope this quote inspires you to approach your learning with a passion and curiosity that ignites a lifelong love for education. 💕📚 🤔 Remember, every day is an opportunity to learn and grow, so let's make the most of it! 🌟

We Want to Hear from You! As McDonald County Schools plan for the 2020-2021 school year, we would like your feedback on learning options that would work best for your family. Options might include seated instruction (face-to-face at school site) or virtual instruction (6 hours a day, at home, with teacher support available). Typical grading would occur with both seated and virtual instruction. Your responses will allow us to make decisions for the upcoming school year that best meets the learning needs of your child while also prioritizing their health. For families with multiple children who will be attending McDonald County Schools in August, please complete a separate survey, using this same link for EACH child in your household. https://forms.gle/jT2CWiJvMwcNzvqVA
We are excited to announce our new website! We hope this makes it easier for the community to stay up-to-date on what's happening at McDonald County School District!
