We are accepting donations of gently used or new books that are special to you. Each book will be added to the collection and be given a "In memory of..." plate on the inside of the cover with your name & name of loved one (if applicable).


Book drive will run from November 21st through December 21st. All books can be given to Mr. Howell and Mrs. R Genesky in the Media Center.

3:1 is here - Now what?

Millbrook High School is now a 3:1 school and it's been great seeing classes make use of these devices already!


Here's some things to keep in mind:


  • Everyone has been enrolled in the "3-1 Student Device Integration" course in Canvas. Please complete the first two modules by December 16th and complete this Google Form when you have finished them.

  • Your friendly Media Specialists make great resources for ways to integrate the 3:1 in your classroom.
  • Your coworkers are great resources too! We host a Tech Sandbox in the Senior Lounge every Wednesday after school - so come ready to ask or share!


If you have issues with the devices that require assistance, please email BOTH Chris Howell and Rachell Genesky. Don't forget to include the follow in your email:


  • Brief description of the problem
  • Serial number of the device(s) effected
  • Room number
