The ESP Winter Wonder Fun Run collected 220 pounds of food for Greenhouse Ministries Community Pantry!  WOOHOO!  Just one of the reasons we love our ESP/MCS families.

Congratulations to Hobgood that has been notified that it will be receiving a Read to Be Ready grant for $22,500.  This will be to encourage reading in the summer for twenty students from across the district.  Thanks to Kristen Treinen and Caresa Dodson who constructed the application. 

Murfreesboro City Schools is excited to announce that the Department of Human Services will host their Summer Feeding Summit on January 25 at Tennessee State University and has asked our Food Service Director, Sandy Scheele, to set up a booth and bring the Chow Bus to encourage systems to promote mobile feeding.  With Mrs. Scheele's help, several school systems now have a mobile feeding program.  A school in Alabama has one, Lebanon Special School District has one, and Metro Action Commission now has four!  Trousdale County is in the process of developing a similar program. Thanks to Mrs. Scheele for her positive influence on so many districts that has, in turn, helped so many students. 

Congratulations to Overall Creek Elementary, Bradley Academy, and Northfield Elementary for being selected by the Tennessee Department of Education and the Tennessee Behavior Supports Project (TBSP) as Silver Level Model of Demonstration Schools for Response to Intervention and Intervention for Behavior (RTI2B).  We are also excited to announce that the following schools have achieved recognition by TBSP for the ongoing commitment to implement a multi-tiered system of support for behavior and social learning: Discovery School and Erma Siegel received a Bronze Level of Demonstration and Hobgood Elementary, John Pittard Elementary, Mitchell Neilson Elementary, and Reeves Rogers received a School of Recognition award. We appreciate the hard work and dedication of all schools in improving learning and positive behavior.
