Attention MMCSD Senior Class! If you are planning to go to college and would like some assistance filling out your FAFSA, we will be offering a virtual FAFSA night through ZOOM on Tuesday November 3rd at 6 pm. Please let Ms. Atwell know if you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity.
At MMCSD our Juniors and Seniors are attending Virtual College Fairs. These Fairs are interactive, online forums where individuals or groups can connect with representatives from colleges and learn more about how to apply. Ms. Atwell, our School Guidance Counselor, has been working with students so they may attend these fairs during school hours. Students are able to attend live Zoom presentations with college and university representatives, watch videos about specific colleges and the admission process, schedule one-on-one meetings with a college representative, get free advice from a college advising expert at NACAC, and attend online meet-ups to get information about financial aid, scholarships, and more. Visit Ms. Atwell’s Counseling Corner for NYS graduation requirements, a list of helpful college websites and so much more at: https://sites.google.com/mtmorriscsd.org/counselingcorner; View upcoming virtual fairs at: https://virtualcollegefairs.org/events; Learn about scholarship award opportunities at: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/scholarships-and-recognition/scholarship-partners-programs?excmpid=mtg444-st-1-mat
Our fourth graders had a lot of fun crafting spiders! You can make one too with just a paper plate, paint, googly eyes and pipe cleaners.
Picture Day for our in-person learners is tomorrow, October 14th. There is still time to pre–order your photos online at www.inter-state.com/order or by having your child(ren) turn in their order form tomorrow. Virtual families are being contacted individually to schedule a time slot to have their child(ren)’s photos taken on Thursday, December 3rd.
Our second grade students were able to participate in a fun and engaging activity while working with place values. Look closely at what these silly monsters are made out of! For this activity students cut place values out of paper and glued the pieces onto construction paper to create their very own place value monster. Once the students finished creating their monsters it was time to find out how old each monster is. Students recorded the sum of each place value and then they figured out the total sum of all the place values. Everyone was surprised at how old monsters can be!!
MMCSD Musicians Creating Masterpieces; Here at Mount Morris Central School District, Mr. Irwin and his band students have created a video of a performance that we are pleased to share with you. This performance was created by multi-track recording each part in spaced-out lesson groups, and using individual student tracks from remote learners. Click on the following link to enjoy this performance, titled Also Sprach Zarathustra: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FZ7nVhfc7S4OaBXe7ZX7bGw_Whi5XUF9/view?usp=sharing These talented musicians are currently working on a Halloween type piece that uses ostinato patterns, unorthodox instrument sounds, voices (with the HS Chorus) and some electronic alterations (reversal, pitch shifting and reverberation) to create a 'spooky' sound-scape. This piece was co-written by the ensemble and they are calling it "10/31".
Tomorrow, Friday, October 9th - Dress in blue and white! #MMPRIDE#GOBLUE!!
Picture Day is on Wednesday, October 14th! This year we are asking that orders be placed online in an effort to avoid the picture envelopes passing through so many hands.

Congratulations to our Junior High and Senior High Student of the Month Award Winners for September!!
Our fourth graders are working with an Elementary Science Program kit from the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership (GVEP) called Birds and their Adaptations. Through a variety of activities and hands-on experience students will discover how adaptations help living things survive. Students are learning that different birds have special beaks that allow them to eat specific foods. In these images’ students are dissecting barn owl pellets to see what animals barn owls eat. Students wore gloves and goggles as they used tweezers and wooden probes to pull out a variety of bones. The bones were placed on a bond chart based on the type of bone and what animal it came from.
