Hometown Hero Ms. Monica Clapp Selected as Hometown Hero
 
Congratulations to Monica Clapp, a sixth grade math teacher who has been selected as the April Hometown Hero for Cabarrus County Schools.
 
Hometown Hero is a teacher recognition program sponsored by Charles G. Monnett III & Associates (Monnett & Associates) to help teachers offset some of the hundreds of dollars they spend of their own money each year in classroom supplies.
 
Each month, the law firm will honor the top vote-getter at schools throughout the Charlotte-metro region with a $250 Visa gift card to purchase supplies for the classroom and Domino’s will cater a pizza party for the winning teacher’s classroom.
 
Bob Dill, marketing director for Monnett & Associates brought Domino's Pizza for the class and presented Ms. Clapp with her award on Thursday, May 7.

BYOT, or Bring Your Own Technology,
 
is an initiative of Cabarrus County Schools to allow students and staff to bring their own devices (laptops, netbooks, tablets, e-readers, iPads, iPods, smart phones, etc.) to school to use for instructional purposes and school business.  The faculty and staff of Mt. Pleasant Middle School want to encourage students to assess their own learning needs and be able to determine which tools(devices and online tools) will successfully meet their needs.  We believe students are capable of making intelligent, innovative, and appropriate choices.
 
Before students may bring their own devices to school, parents and students must read our BYOT guidelines and complete an online form that is available by clicking here.
