All MMS students will be turning in their iPads before they leave for the summer. It is important that students watch this video to prepare their iPads for turn-in.
If you were unable to attend one of our parent meetings last month, you can see the presentation on our One2One site. This has information for families who will be getting iPads next year and may not be familiar with the device. It also includes the district iPad handbook.
Our last ‘Parenting in the Digital Age’ workshop is this Thursday, May 5th from 7-8 pm at Weaver Middle School.

As we look around our classrooms this year it’s amazing to see our students using iPads in just about every subject. They have been a great tool for our students. Students are doing group projects, turning in assignments and monitoring their own grades in Canvas. We work every day to prepare our students to be Ready for Tomorrow. Giving students the chance to learn with the latest technology allows them to grow in the digital world. With this though comes great responsibility and we must teach students to be good digital citizens and to protect their digital footprint. Read More…
We are fortunate to have a college counselor in our district working to make the process easier for our families. Tom Woodford works to reach each student and family in the district to let them know about college information nights, deadlines for applications and how to get help with financial aid. Tom hosts parent information nights beginning in the eighth grade. This helps parents feel secure knowing their student is on the correct path to graduation. You can sign up for Tom’s college information only newsletter. Once a week he will send out important dates and news parents and students need to know. There is also a college information page located on the ILC’s homepage. Preparing students to be Ready for Tomorrow means working with them at every stage of their high school career.
