5 Ways to Make New Friends at School

Can you believe that school is right around the corner? Doesn’t it seem like summer always goes too fast? But I am sure that many students who are entering MMI this year are eager to get started and meet new friends. For some, meeting new people is easy and effortless, but for others, it may be a daunting task. I know that for me, it was never easy. So I would like to offer a few tips to new students to make them feel a little more empowered when they enter MMI for the first time.

Success On and Off the Field

By Jason Tribbet
MMI Athletic Director

Jason TribbetIf you enjoy playing sports as much as I do, then I don’t need to tell you why playing sports will benefit you not only now but the rest of your life.

I have sports to thank for some of the best memories I have growing up. Playing catch with my dad in the backyard, playing football on a cool fall day with my friends, or just catching up with friends who I met while playing college baseball … those are just a few of the fond memories that I have because I played sports growing up.

MMI: Where Everybody Knows Your Name

By Grete DeAngelo
MMI Social Studies Instructor

Grete DeAngeloI live in a small town and I love it. So many students tell me they can’t wait to get out of this area, but I was one of those who never wanted to leave. In the summers, I walk early in the morning and I pass the same people on their own walking routes every day. It is unusual for me to drive or walk down Main Street and see anyone who doesn’t at least look familiar.

Going to MMI is like walking in a small town. There are 250 students and I know almost every one of them by name. The ones whose names I don’t know or I haven’t yet taught are kids whose faces are familiar, so much so that whenever we have a shadow student visiting, I notice right away that there’s someone new in the halls.
