Attention all 7th grade families.  There is a state requirement that all 7th grade students receive the TDAP and Meningo vaccines prior to September 6th.  Please make sure your child has received these two vaccinations prior to this date.  If the vaccines are not up to date by September 6, they will not be allowed to return to school until they receive the vaccines.
There will be an informational meeting regarding the 8th/7th Grade trip to Williamsburg, Virginia on Tuesday, August 27 at 6 PM in the Mount Airy Middle School cafeteria.

This Month in Career and Technical Education:

Each month, we will be highlighting the fun and creative things students are doing in an effort to explore their career paths. For the month of August, we are focusing on Genius Hour!

Genius Hour is a program designed to encourage students to explore, research, design, and create objects and topics that interest them. During Genius Hour, we are adding a twist to the program by incorporating career interests to their lists of desired topics. Through surveys and questionnaires, research, and games, students will begin to discover careers that appeal to them.

Students will be placed into groups based on similar career choices and will work together to design a product that will benefit the needs of customers in their occupational fields. Team members will replicate the popular TV show, “Shark Tank”, and will then design, create, and present their products to their classmates, faculty, and staff members.

Stay tuned for highlights, student profiles, photos, and more from Career and Technical Education!
