The Mount Vernon R-V School Board Meeting held its regular meeting on Thursday, March 23rd.  Below are some items of interest:


  • Mrs. Kellie Krebs and Ms. Alissa Robbins were on hand with a large group of MVIS Students to discuss the newly formed SPARK Program. SPARK (Students Prepared and Armed with Robotics Knowledge) is in its first year of existence at the Intermediate School.   Student members are learning to build and program robots to complete tasks with an eye toward attending competitions in the very near future.  There is a strong element of cooperation built into the club which is also of great benefit to its members.  The program started thanks to a generous sponsorship donation from EFCO Corporation in Monett.  All in attendance were very excited to see a robotics demonstration conducted by the students!  Mrs. Krebs and Ms. Robbins are assisted by SRO Chance Cornell and MVHS Sophomore Donny Trotter.  Mrs. Krebs hopes to help facilitate the expansion of the program into the Middle School and High School.
  • March is the meeting at which our Spring Sports Coaches offer reports on the progress of their programs.  However, most of our student-athletes were in action all across southwest Missouri.  Tom Cox and Dusty Killingsworth were able to attend and offer reports on Boys Tennis and Golf. 
  • Coach Killingsworth also took the opportunity to bring two Lady Mountaineer Basketball players to thank the Board for their support of the girls' Christmas Break trip to Disneyworld.  Mikala Veith was very gracious in her thoughtful words to the Board about the once-in-a lifetime opportunity it was for the Lady Mt'Neers to experience such a memorable trip with their teammates.
  • The Board had an opportunity to consider transportation rates submitted by Apple Bus Company for the 4th and 5th years of our current contract.  The Board voted to table the matter for further discussion at their next meeting.
  • In Closed Session:
    • The Board voted to hire Chelsie Price for the High School Math Position.  Mrs. Price has been serving as a long-term substitute in that role.  Welcome aboard Chelsie!
    • The Board also voted to hire Andrew Tiefenbrunn as Assistant Band Director for the upcoming school year.  Mr. Tiefenbrunn served as a student-teacher this year in our Fine Arts Department and we are excited to have him join us as a full-time Mt'Neer!  Andrew is filling the vacancy created when April McBaine was transferred to Vocal Music Director at MVHS and MVMS.
    • The Board accepted resignations from Andy Armstrong (MVMS English) and Jenny Huver (MVES Kindergarten).  A huge thank you to both of them for their service to the Mount Vernon District!

The next regular meeting of the Mount Vernon R-V School Board will be on Tuesday, April 18th at 7:30 in the Middle School Board Room.  The Board will be re-organized following the School Board Election of April 4th.
