*Chromebooks will be turned in at the end of the school year this year. More details about the check in process will be coming later but for now please start getting your Chromebook ready to be turned in. 

*Attention 6th grade families:

I shared the following two videos with Humanities teachers a couple weeks ago and asked that they show it to their classes. I also wanted to share it with parents/guardians so you can review and submit any questions you have about 7th grade at Mickle. The first video summarizes what to expect for 7th grade and the second video answers some student questions. You are welcome to use the same jumpcode (keyword search on lps.org: GFY6) at the end of the first video and submit any questions you have-I’ll respond via email to your question. (*Please note there will be a new course to replace Contemporary Communications next year so schedules will look slightly different. Also please know that over the summer building decisions will be made in line with newer protocols. Any updated info will be shared before school starts next school year.)

*For your information, Mickle is beginning the work of creating short videos for our next year 6th graders of a typical student day. You may see adults or students with cameras or phones to record images or quick videos. We ask for cooperation if you notice these videos being taken. Before the edited versions are shared out, we will be cautious to make sure that permissions from August census forms are followed. Thank you for the help in our preparation work!
