What is ICAP?
ICAP is a student-driven, ongoing process that actively engages students, enabling them to:
1. Understand their own interest, strengths, values and learning
2. Create a vision for their individual future.
3. Develop individual goals.
4. Prepare a personal plan for achieving their vision and their goals.
New Student Meet and Greet will be held on September 28th from 9:15 AM to 9:45 AM in the Teachers Lounge. Donuts and juice will be provided. This is an annual event for all the new students that have joined our family at MMS. Invitations will be sent out to the participating students.

This year, say goodbye to cash and hello to eWallet—your child’s digital payment account.
Before the Fair, set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases.
If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school.

The countdown to more Bookjoy is on! Catch you at the Fair!
The goal of W.I.N. Time is to give students 30 minutes a day once or twice a week to provide opportunities for intervention or extension in areas of need. Students will either be placed or have the opportunity to choose from classes that have extra help or enrichment activities.
We will be working with students in the coming weeks to help them understand the purpose and the logistics.
