Mrs. Sharpless and her students are proud recipients of TECO’s generosity. Please read this Lakeland Ledger article. This gesture supporting our students will have long-term benefits. The money raised by the sale of vegetables grown will be used to benefit the MMS Ag Program. The greenhouse was built last year and will house the Styrofoam stackers. Mrs. Sharpless is well-known around campus for bringing us our precious goats last year. Thank you, TECO, for recognizing the importance of school-industry partnership.
This exciting new program is now being offered to qualifying MMS students. We invite you to read the information and complete the application provided on the Educational Talent Search Program page of this site if you are interested in having your child take advantage of this opportunity. We look forward to seeing many of our students benefit by participation in this new program.
Beginning the first week of October, the math department will be offering tutoring from 4:00-5:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Check with teachers for additional times.
During the first 9 weeks, all MMS students are expected to read 1 fiction and 1 non-fiction book on their reading level and pass an Accelerated Reader test on each. The media center will open for book check out shortly after school starts, and teachers may have AR books available from their classroom libraries. Students must pass the AR tests to receive full credit for their grade in Language Arts and Reading classes. Students who meet their quarterly reading goal with AR test scores of 80% or higher earn $100 Panther Bucks to spend at the AR Store. Once a student meets their quarterly AR Goal, they can earn $50 Panther Bucks for each additional book they read and score 80% or higher on the AR test. The books must be within or above their ZPD/Lexile reading.
