STUDENT EXPECTATIONS FOR AMI INSTRUCTION: We understand that many families may experience challenges in scheduling. The most important expectation is completing and submitting assignments as close as possible to when they are due. Teachers will offer digital face to face lessons with students 2-4 days per week. Students should make an effort to attend live instruction. Sessions will be recorded.

A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRINCIPAL Hello Mighty Mills Comets Students, I would never have imagined that our 2019-2020 school year would take a turn such as this. These last three weeks have truly been a learning curve for everyone. I am hoping and praying you and our families are all doing well. Remember your school family misses you and are here for you. As we move forward using our AMI packets, innovative technology, and teacher’s creative ways to stay in contact with you, please be patient as we travel through this situation together. This is all new for everyone. We will take this opportunity as learning together to ensure learning is still taking place. You teachers and administrations are working daily just like you are by attending online professional development, meeting and planning to provide you with continuous rigorous instruction in a different format. Remember to read at least for twenty minutes a day and do not forget to record what you read. We are working on setting up face to face meetings via Google hangout in order to assist and just to see everyone smiling faces. Lastly, if no one has told you today that they love you, I do. I miss all of you very much. I want you to stay safe and healthy. Your Principal, Dr. E. Lisa Watson
