Jennifer Novotney, a teacher at MMI Preparatory School, has received an award for her recently published novel.
Her first novel, Winter in the Soul, won a bronze 2014 Moonbeam Children’s Book Award in the young adult category. The contest judges the work of authors, illustrators and publishers of children’s books distributed in North America.
Jacqueline Snyder, a student at MMI, earned the title of the 2014 National American Miss Pennsylvania at the state pageant held Aug. 10.
She will attend the national pageant in Anaheim, California, at Disneyland during the week of Thanksgiving as Pennsylvania’s representative. During the pageant, she will have the opportunity to win her share of more than half a million dollars in cash and prizes.
Congressman Lou Barletta visited MMI on Thursday morning, speaking to an assembly of eighth- to 12th-grade students. He discussed a variety of topics, including his plan to run government like a business to save money. Students were able to submit questions that the congressman answered, sharing his views and information on immigration, law enforcement, unemployment, the economy, local development projects and more.
“The students at MMI Preparatory School in Freeland are quite impressive. After I spoke to them briefly, they were full of insightful and challenging questions. If these young people are any indication, the future of Pennsylvania is in good hands!” Barletta said.
A new scholarship has been established at MMI Preparatory School with the first recipient selected this year.

My mom jokes that I’ve been using a planner since kindergarten. And quite honestly, if the option existed (and if I actually got homework when I was five years old), I probably would have. I suppose it’s fitting that I stress the importance of using a planner in my Mid School Group Counseling classes on a daily basis. While I know the strategy of recording assignments, goals, and important events may not be practical for everyone, I feel it is a critical skill for pre-teens to learn and implement.

I don't do it for the money. So many students tell me, "I don't know what I want to do, but I want to make a lot of money." Well, the money won't mean much if there's no meaning in what you do.
