Our students are in the final days of preparation for the FSA. MMS has always taken pride in our accomplishments. Our previous FCAT scores indicated the dedication of staff and students to success. Students and staff have prepared for the FSA and are anxious to experience the new assessment. Parents, please support your child! Make sure he/she is rested, has breakfast, and comes to school with a positive attitude! We will be celebrating this time of year with different activities during spirit week. Information re spirit week will be provided to students through announcements. We enter the FSA confident that again, “MMS Students Will Continue To Shine!”
Ms. Malott is pleased to announce that our very own Symphonic Band earned an Excellent Rating on March 14, at MPA! The students received all Excellent ratings on stage and a Superior in sight-reading!
We are pleased to announce that our students now have access to the Office 365 Education package, which includes Office Suite Online, OneDrive cloud storage with the ability to collaborate and share documents, and 5 copies of Office 2013 for home download. Providing 5 copies allows the students access to their 365 account on multiple devices for their academic endeavors. Students will not have access to Outlook email at this time; they will continue to use their Polk Gmail (mypolkschools.net accounts for those with parental permission to use Google Apps).
Students will log in through the polk-fl website by clicking on the Office 365 link on the bottom, left of the web page, under Tools & More. Note: Students must use the Office 365 link, not the Student Portal or Webmail for Office 365 links. Their sign- in information is:
This information should be the same as student computer access, with the addition of @polk-fl.net
A major benefit to the student Office Education licenses is the ability to install Office at home, giving students a tool to be even more successful in the classroom. Teachers will be discussing effective use of these products with students. If students or parents have any questions, please contact one of your student’s BYOD teachers or Mr. Carley, MMS Network Manager, 701-1066.
