A Message from the Counseling Center
Happy New Year MGM Parents!
The School Counseling Center would like to invite you to see what your student has been doing with college and career readiness using Naviance.
You can access your student's results with StrengthsExplorer for 8th graders and SMART goals and Career Finder for 6th and 7th graders.
To access Naviance, log into your Power School account. Click on the arrow in the upper right hand corner of the screen and click on Family Connection.
Take some time and make it a family activity by having your student take you through the process!
Learning Commons News & Request for Help
We are excited to announce that the Grand Opening of the Learning Commons MakerSpace is January 13! This space will provide all MGM students a unique learning opportunity to build, create, play, do, collaborate, read, and "make" ideas come to life.
The Learning Commons is in need of the following items for our new MakerSpace. If you are cleaning out old toys or closets/pantries, we need the following:
-Lego storage bins
-old board games (missing pieces are ok!)
-X-Box games (E rating only)
-Makey Makey kits
-Snap Circuit kits
-scenic shower curtains (such as oceans, beaches, space)
-makers, crayons, colored pencils
-wiggle eyes (all sizes)
Please send any donations to Ms. Kohout in the Learning Commons!
