This year's summer reading theme is "Build a Better World" and the Michigan eLibrary (MeL) is here to help! Please download the document below (click on the picture) for a list of great resources and weblinks for students of all ages. These include centers to support and build basic skills such as reading and math as well as resources for students in grade 6 -12 to maintain basic skills and improve research skills to help prepare for life after high school with college or career information.
This spring, MCMS students will again be participating in M-Step, the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress.
All students statewide in grades 3-8 will take the English language arts and mathematics assessments, which include open-ended and multiple choice questions. Fourth and seventh graders will take an additional science test; and fifth and eighth graders will take an additional social studies test.
The MCMS teachers are currently working with our students to prepare them for the online testing format and structure. For detailed information related to M-STEP, including sample items for each grade, please visit http://www.michigan.gov/mde.
MCMS will be administering these assessments during their normal ELA, math, science or social studies hours with as ittle disruption to their normal schedule as possible. We ask that you please avoid scheduling any appointments for your student(s) that involve pulling them out of school during the testing windows.
8th grade assessment dates: April 11th - 27th
7th grade assessment dates: May 2 - May 19
6th grade assessment dates: May 4 - May 17
Thank you in advance for your support and assistance during the assessment period. If you need to make medical appointments for your student and have questions about specific dates/times please contact our main office at (810) 676-1201.
