The office staff would like your help in recognizing our staff. Please take a few moments and use the link below to provide some encouragement to those folks that are making a major difference in your child's future. These comments can be anonymous, or you can provide your name. The office staff will use the provided comments every Thursday for our #thankfulThursday movement. The attached form can be completed, as little or often as you like, throughout the entire school year. We appreciate your support in growing the culture of gratitude that already exists at MIS!!

A couple of comments shared this week:

"Mrs. Diehr, thank you for taking the time to make your math lessons fun! When students go home and want to tell their parents all about what they did in math today, and math isn't their favorite subject, you know the teacher is doing something right."

"Mrs. Hall and Mrs. Diehr, my daughter comes home every day so excited to tell me about the creative lessons you have for students! Thanks to both of you for making learning so fun for my daughter and all your other students!"

Rally for riley

Thanks to the generosity of our parents, students and staff, we raised $946.30 this week for Riley Hospital. This is a $120 increase from last year. Again, thank you so much for supporting this worthy cause.


Our school will be participating in the SchoolStore program again this year. This online program helps our school earn cash without students selling door-to-door, collecting money or delivering products. Over 400 merchants, including Kohl's, Old Navy and WalMart.com, have joined together to offer up to 50% of sales to our school for shopping through SchoolStore.com.

You shop online for what you are planning to purchase anyway and support our school. Simply go to www.schoolstore.com, select our school (School code: 8981) and let the shopping begin!! Feel free to share with family members and friends.
