MNPS Landmark Build Challenge 2022

Driving Question: How can I create a model of a local or state landmark that is important to me?

A landmark is an object or feature of a landscape or town that is easily seen and recognized from a distance, especially one that enables someone to establish their location (example: The Parthenon in Centennial Park).

Work individually or in a group to research a local/state (TN) landmark. Visit Community Landmarks Build Challenge for more info. You may use any Minecraft world to build in, but your submission must include:

- a tour & explanation of your landmark.

- a plaque (in your world) detailing the purpose & history of the landmark.

- an explanation for why you chose the landmark.


All Submissions are due by 11:59pm February 28, 2022 on Flipgrid.

Best Library in MNPS!!!

Well I think so, but like any over competitive librarian I like to dominate all charts!

Currently our December Check-Outs were in the top six out of HIgh Schools. But we haven't even made the chart with MackinVia.

Follow directions below on how to help get Hillsboro make the top ten list for MackinVia!

Don't forget to get a hall pass to the library, even during lunch!

If you have an MNPS laptop with Global Protect, your device is no longer supported here! Please bring back to the library so we can swap you out with a new device!

How do I know if it has Global Protect? This icon or box shows up on your laptop(Pictured in this article). Or if your mnpsk12.org-schools WIFI is not working at school.

Teachers & Staff, your MNPS devices will still have global protect on them for now. Only student devices need to be swapped out.


In other words, if your MNPS computer breaks, you will not lose all of your school work as long as your work was saved to OneDrive.

Need to come to the library?

You will need a Hall Pass filled out by a teacher to enter. When you enter in you will need to scan the QR code to check-in. If you do not have a phone to scan the QR code, someone at the circulation desk will check you in correctly.

As a reminder you need a hall pass to be in the library at any point of the school day, even during lunch.

Thank you!

Tuesdays & Thursdays 2:20-4:20 In the Library

Laptop Lost & Found Procedure

When laptops go missing in the building....

1st off, try to avoid that by never leaving it behind. To avoid confusion on whose laptop is whose, place an identifiable sticker on your laptop that helps identify your laptop. Good news, if you check out books in the library, we typically have an assortment of fun stickers.

Worst case scenario, you lose your laptop in the building, your teacher will not hold it but will turn it into the library. We will scan the barcode on the back to see who it is checked out to, then we will lock up the laptop and add your name to the Laptop List that teachers have access to. So you can simple stop by the library if your laptop is lost in the building or check in with a teacher to see if your name is on the list.

If you find a laptop, please return to the library! We will have a treat for you for being so sweet and returning a laptop!!!
