Teacher in the Spotlight

-Ms. Struzik

Ms. Struzik's class was caught learning about the Subject/Verb Agreement. She had the entire class participating & working together learning while still having fun. Way to go Ms Struzik!!

Having CHARACTER counts here at MIS:

The six pillars represent the six core ethical values that form the foundation of the Character Counts character education curriculum. The 6 Pillars of Character are: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. There are different ways to help the students and us remember the different pillars. TRRFCC is the acronym used to help remember the pillars because people with good character are terrific. Each pillar is assigned a color and has a brief explanation for why it is that color.

EVERY MONTH A GROUP OF STUDENTS ARE NOMINATED FOR SHOWING THAT MONTHS PILLAR. Once chosen,  that student will have his/her name read over the intercom the day of the Character Counts Celebration pizza lunch.

MIS Students participated in the worldwide campaign. It is a one-hour introduction to computer science designed to demystify computer coding and show that anybody can learn the basics while having fun
