Rationale: 

Last week, the first Alpha STEM Camp at Hobgood was tremendously successful.  Chris Lilly of the City of Murfreesboro, First of All Foundation of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Kelly Jones, Tennessee Tech’s College of Engineering, Greg Lyles, the MCS Technology Department who accessed materials and conducted sessions, and the Outreach Team facilitated the camp of 50 rising 5th and 6th graders.

Also last week, the third annual camp for students with special needs was held at Scales.  Thanks to sponsorships and lots and lots of community volunteers, high school students, and teachers, 56 children participated in Camp Boro, a week filled with square dancing, horseriding, water sprays, lasso lessons, and more.

MNS would like to thank the generous agents from Parks Realty, and especially Sunnette Peay, for their generous support.  Every year, they help MNS conduct an essay contest, and the agents award prizes to the winners.  First Place winners get a new bike, Second Place Winners get $50 Walmart gift card, Third Place get $25 Walmart gift cards, and 4th Place winners get a $10 McDonald’s gift card.  In each grade level! That totals 7 bikes and $600 in gift cards! 

MNS would also like to thank Lori Domer and Creekside at Three Rivers Assisted Living Center for providing lunch for the entire staff on the last day of school.  

Many thanks to Experience Church whose volunteers created family food bags for the summer.

Trent Cheeves, Micky Brooks, Rachel Slough, Kimberly Hix, and Bess Turner presented at the Rutherford County Chamber’s Teach Ready STEM Conference.  They shared ways to use technology to enhance instruction and communication.  Also at the same conference, Gary Anderson, Dave Latimer, and John Dillman, and the following Discovery School students: Tessa Long, Harrison Allen, Benjamin Elfersy, Everett Smith, Tristan Jacobs, Gabby Miller, Olivia Caster, Everett Shaw, Rowland Bradford, and Isaiah Phillips who demonstrated the “If I Had a Hammer” house build.

Last week, Books on a Bus (BOB) hit the road, allowing children to choose books to take home in addition to having reading activities on the bus.  We appreciate the planning that Sheri Arnette, Caresa Dodson, and the Transportation, Technology, and Maintenance Departments did to make BOB possible.  And, we appreciate the gifts of the Siegel Foundation, and particularly the Christy-Houston Foundation for enabling this mobile library.  Staffing the bus each day are Teresa Crouch, MCS Bus Driver of the Year, who does a great job of driving BOB; teachers Melanie Heston and Suzanne St. John, and ESP’s Tony Herndon who help the children choose book and also design reading activities for the children; and Caresa Dodson frequently appears.  More than 270 children visited BOB last week, and about 1000 books were checked out.  For the public, if you have gently used or new books for ages 2-13, we would love to have them.  Just contact Murfreesboro City Schools at 615-893-2313.  For the location of BOB during the week, please check our MCS website.

Also, last week the summer feeding program began for anyone in the community who is 18 or younger began.  This program provides free breakfast and lunch at various places in the community.  During their first week, the CHOW buses served 3,926 breakfasts and 4,195 lunches at 28 sites.  For more information, check out the MCS website.
