Due to Governor Tom Wolf's announcement on Thursday that all extracurricular activities must be suspended, the MMI Upper School Drama Club is postponing the debut of its virtual one-act comedy show, which was originally scheduled for December 18. The show will now debut in January at a date and time to be announced.
MMI Preparatory School has announced the names of students who achieved Honor Roll status during the first quarter of the 2020-2021 school year.
Students are as follows:
MMI Preparatory School sophomore Jillian McGeehin, the daughter of Larry and Amy McGeehin of Sugarloaf, won the School's Poetry Out Loud competition and will represent MMI at the regional competition.
Sophomore Annabel Dobash, the daughter of Gregory and Stacey Dobash of Mountaintop, was the runner-up. MMI English instructor Jennifer Novotney served as the faculty advisor.
MMI Preparatory School recently received a $5,000 contribution from Community Bank, N.A. through the Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program to go toward need-based scholarships at the school.
MMI Director of Advancement Kim McNulty said, “On behalf of everyone at MMI Preparatory School, I’d like to thank Community Bank, N.A. for their generous contribution. Since 2005, MMI students have received nearly $3.8 million in scholarship support thanks to the contributions of many area companies. Support of MMI through the EITC or OSTC programs will help MMI’s efforts to make our educational experience available to the most capable students regardless of their financial circumstances.”

How do we stay connected in a world that requires disconnection?
We are walking into the rest of the school year with our students at home, and are trying to comprehend the uncertainty of when life will return to some semblance of normal.

Today, I am going to share some great strategies for staying organized with your online learning while dealing with all the distractions of being at home.
I have a lot of experience with online learning. I have not only had to teach online classes now and prior to teaching at MMI, but also I was also an online student for a while. So, from experience on both ends, here are some strategies:
“When a child is at their most unlovable is when they need the most love.”
It can be very hard to find the small positives in a world that is hectic for us and our students, especially with the rigorous academic challenges at a school like MMI. The pre-teen and teenage years are full of opportunities for children to express themselves in both positive and negative ways. The impact of a positive relationship between a child and parent (or other adult) has an effect on how they handle the choices they make. Rewarding students, even for the smallest positive, with the greatest reward of all-our time and attention – can have a big impact on how they think and react to many choices and obstacles.
