Congratulations to the teachers who wrote and received received Business Education Partnership grants for their classrooms: 

  • Emily Petty from Bradley for “Learning Math Is Larger than Life.”
  • Kelley Kleppinger from Discovery for “Music Is Not a Spectator Sport.”
  • Michelle Eaton from Erma Siegel for “Computerized Marbles.”
  • Debbie Hickerson from John Pittard for “Show What You Grow.”

MNS would like to thank the following community partners:

  • Jim Dillon and Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems for donating $300 to the Greenhouse Club
  • First Baptist Church on Castle St for providing fresh grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch for the entire faculty and staff for Teacher Appreciation Week
  • Michael Davis, with WeLead and the Nicholas Foundation, for providing lunch for the teachers
  • Boy Scout troop number 711, for spending their service hours cleaning up the flowerbeds at Mitchell Neilson

The works of three Murfreesboro City Schools' students were selected for award in this year’s 6th annual MTSU Winner’s Circle!
