--CENTRAL MIDDLE SCHOOL--
What is Skittles? A place where girls with different personalities, interests, and backgrounds come together as one group. "We are all different colors and flavors but are all the same." It's a great group of girls who are involved in mentoring, community engagement, connections, and new friendships!

Work Experience Program Trainee of the Week
This week's MHS Work Experience Program trainee is junior Nicholas Scheeper. Nick has been training with the automotive technicians at Toyota of Muscatine this year. Pictured are (L-R) Toyota Repair Technician Alex Easterla (2008 MHS graduate), Nick Scheeper, and Toyota Service Manager TJ Deere.
Nick has been getting a good look at the day-to-day operations of an award-winning Toyota dealership service and repair shop. He has also been experiencing the daily challenges the 'Techs" face to provide quality vehicle maintenance.
We're proud to also mention that Alex Easterla was an MHS Work Experience Program trainee back in the day and made his first steps into the automotive field while training with Toyota of Muscatine. Alex went on after graduation from MHS to earn a degree in Automotive Science from Kirkwood Community College before returning to Muscatine to work.
We would like to thank the staff at Toyota of Muscatine, located at 3000 N Highway 38, for working with our students over the years.
