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. Leiber is always there for her students and always lets us get another chance. Mrs. Leiber always makes me happy when I walk into her classroom everyday when she says "Good Morning". She always gives us time to get our work done in class and especially lets us have fun at the same time. She has made me love and enjoy reading once again and has made me enjoy the good in life. One last thing I love about Mrs. Leiber is she is so kind to all of her students and always makes me and everyone smile. I thank you Mrs. Leiber for everything you have helped me with this year!"

"Thank you to Mrs. Hall for taking time to share some fun and useful tips and strategies for student incentive/engagement! I love how creative you are!! Thank you!!"

Related Arts Schedule - Change of classes

We want to remind you that the week of February 22nd will be when your child begins his/her last twelve week rotation of Related Arts. Below is the list of related arts classes by teacher for the last rotation.

Reminder to those students moving to Art

The Art Supply List was posted at the beginning of the year and listed what each student would need for class. We are approaching the third trimester of the year, and students will be changing Related Arts classes the week of February 22nd. Please make sure your student has turned in his/her Art supplies to their homeroom teacher as soon as possible. Students are not allowed to share supplies at this time; therefore, each student will need to bring in his/her own. These supplies will be kept separate from one another to ensure your child’s safety. The following items are needed:

--Art Box (Sterilite Pencil Box-preferred; or pencil pouch/Ziplock bag)

--Crayola Markers (Broad Tip 10-Pack)

--24-pack Crayola Crayons

--2-Pack Black Sharpie Markers (Fine Point)

--2 Pencils (or more if desired)

--1 Pink Eraser (Paper Mate Pink Pearl)

Please make sure that the art box (or bag) is labeled with your child’s first and last name and the name of their homeroom teacher. Thank you for making sure your student has what they will need for Art. It will make their transition to Art Class a lot smoother if they already have what they need turned in and ready to go.
