MPMS Curriculum & Technology News

Sharing ideas at MPMS, the best middle school in Texas!

What's all this news about?

Every few weeks we would like to send a smore.com newsletter that features three (3) sections. The hope is that the information provided will further support our staff within the classroom.


One section will be a sharing of all of the very relevant and creative resources you as teachers share with the Academic Coach and would like shared with all staff. We will do our best as the year progresses to include resources for each of our curricula.


The second one will be dedicated to technology apps and websites that can be utilized across curricula.


Lastly, the third one will be dedicated to short videos featuring innovative methods and practices. Topics could include classroom management, journaling with foldables, fundamental 5, and so forth. MOST IMPORTANTLY? Tell us what topics you want featured!
