Message from Principal Jackson
We have a student panel speaking to our fabulous MISD School Board on Tuesday night. Our Panthers are featuring Panther Privilege Time (PPT) and how PPT has been a positive thing for our students AND staff. Let's wish these 5 young adults luck as they represent us and make us proud!
Don't forget Friday, April 19 is a bad-weather make-up day, so we do not have school April 19th. Enjoy the 3 day weekend!
Eighth grade Algebra students will be taking the Algebra EOC on May 7th. Please do not make appointments or pick your child up during testing hours if your child is a test taker.
Thank you to the parents who joined me for the last Principal Coffee Chat of the year. You guys are always insightful and fun-spirited. I really enjoy our time together and I value your feedback.
Social media and cell phone usage continues to be a struggle for our teens. Being an ethical and kind citizen of the technology seems to be a challenge for many of our students. I encourage you to keep tabs on what apps and social sites to which your child is spending time. A parent shared a resource that I would like to pass along to our community. I am adding it to my summer reading list: Screen-Smart Parenting by Jodi Gold. Many issues that arise at school come from cover-over issues from "group texting," Snapchat rooms, and Instagram. Let's equip ourselves to help support our children and raise them to be amazing digital citizens. Happy reading!
For incoming 9th graders, there is a parent meeting regarding 1:1 laptops at McKinney Boyd High School on April 22nd. See our MISD website for further details.
