January Message - The "New Connections:
For over ten years, MMS has had a period during the day where students could get help, make up work, or simply study. We called that Connections. In a more focused approach, we will begin the new Flex period beginning on January 22, 2020. While somewhat similar to Connections, Flex will be a 26 minute period at the end of the day where teachers will choose students to work with them for a week. Teachers will use data such as results from short assessments or tests to provide a more targeted approach to both intervention and enrichment. While some teachers will be choosing students who need help on a specific topic others will be selecting students who are ready for the next level of learning or enrichment. We are really excited about how this has all worked out and look forward to meeting the individual needs of our students.
August Message - Learning is our Goal. Growth is our mission.
Every child enters our classroom at a different level, with different experiences, and varied exposure to the curriculum. The staff of Midview Middle School adopted the mission statement above knowing that every student is different but all students are capable of learning and growing from where they started. That is the academic focus of MMS; meet the students where they are and help them grow.
