*A message from our PTSO….
How do you support the staff and students in Mickle Middle School? PTSO does this through a variety of activities each year including financial assistance to student clubs, supply drives and meals for teachers, Honor Roll celebrations, the 8th grade party (or yard signs) and so much more.
In these crazy times our students and staff need our support more than ever. We hope you will consider getting involved and join us the first Thursday of each month for our online meeting.
Too much on your plate but you want to be involved… go to the PTSO page, located on the Mickle web page or click here: Buy-https://docushare.lps.org/docushare/dsweb/Get/Document-2610177/PTSO%20buyout.pdfout Option and fill out the membership page. Then return it to school with your donation to help the work of PTSO.
Can you pay us to leave you alone…? YES, YOU CAN! The fundraising buyout is on the PTSO web page also. Fill it out and send it back to school with your donation then ignore all of our announcements the rest of the year!
Attention 6th and 8th grade zoom-in students…
Next pick-up and return day will be this today, August 27th.
Families please arrange a time to pick up and return materials on the second and fourth Thursday of the month. August 27, September 10 and September 24
PTSO meetings for the first part of the school year will be virtual. The next meeting of the PTO will be Thursday, Sept 3 at 7pm. More information will be coming about how to participate via Zoom for this meeting.
Reminder to Zoom-in families:
MAP Growth testing will begin next week. MAP Reading is scheduled for Sept. 1, 2, and 3. MAP Math is scheduled for Sept. 9, 10, and 11.
If you would like to arrange to have your student(s) go to school to take these tests, please contact Jason Brunott (Testing Coordinator) at 402-436-1216. Your student(s) could take the test with other students who have chosen Zoom-in learning or with their class using the same health and safety procedures described in the LPS Pandemic plan. It will not be possible to schedule individual sessions for Zoom-in students.
If you would like to opt your student(s) out of the MAP tests, teachers will use previous assessment scores and current classroom information to make instructional decisions about students as necessary. To opt your student(s) out of testing, please complete this online form for each student separately. The link will work for as many students as needed.
Please respond by 4pm on Aug. 31st. Thank you!
