This will be the third year MMS has successfully implemented this presentation in order to educate students about how to positively use social media.
Middie PRIDE Team
Middie Pride is a program offered to any and all students who are interested in finding a place to belong and connect with other students. It is an after school program held on the 2nd Thursday of every month until 4:15pm. Students will engage in community service activities to do some positive things within the school and community. Also, students will have the opportunity to participate in fun trips to bowling, putt putt, etc. Overall, the group is aimed to give students a sense of belonging and promote positive relationships with others.
Middle School students can be faced with a variety of choices as they are growing up. The CHOICES program is an interactive, decision-making workshop that empowers teens to achieve academic success in pursuit of their career and life aspirations. Local business and community volunteers conduct sessions that present students with real world exercises on academic self-discipline, time and money management, and goal-setting. This program can show students how little decisions early in life can have long term consequences for themselves and others. The aim of this program is to empower students to take control and responsibility in making positive choices.
