MMPTSA Facebook post: After many months work, we ask you to go to the school's website (http://www.mtmorriscsd.org/new-tutorials) and take a look at the videos we produced this year! This effort was for YOU! If you a child new to Kindergarten or Middle School, we have advice for you. If you are wondering about all the paths to graduation for your high schooler, there are videos for you (in English & Spanish). If you want to know how or why to use SchoolTool, there is a tutorial for that. We aren't professionals, and we know the videos aren't perfect. But, we tried very hard to look at different transitions in the school and help where we could. Let us know what you think! What other videos would be helpful? Also, please consider taking this final survey to help us close our National School of Excellence program. This is our final step before we file our report with the National PTA. We hope the videos help you understand some of the different transitions within the school and we hope the survey reflects that. The survey is going home in school folders, but feel free to take it here. English: http://bit.ly/2VJSiz7 Spanish: http://bit.ly/2H6KDTm
