1:1 Initiative, Greenhouse, New Staff
The start of school is just days away! Deep down, students, teachers and particularly parents are excited! The new school year always provides the opportunity to reconnect with friends and colleagues and focus upon the great work of teaching and learning.
This school year, students in 7th and 9th grades will be the first to engage in a 1:1 Chromebook initiative. Students and teachers will be collaborating to use the power of the internet to support and enhance learning.
In November, our Agriculture Education Program will unveil its new greenhouse! The program, beginning its third year after a nearly thirty year dormancy, will use the greenhouse to support its work in plant and animal sciences.
Finally, the beginning of each new school year initiates important transitions for many students and staff. Over the summer, the administrative team in collaboration with teachers leaders and school support staff have welcomed more than a dozen new teachers and support staff to campus. We are grateful for all of the efforts to support the transitions of the newest members of our community! Welcome to Mount Markham and welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!
