WELCOME TO MONETT INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL
Cub Pride - February 27, 2015
The MIS team would like to thank all the parents and students who attended our technology training meetings. We realize that these meetings did not take the entire time and are planning on ways to make these training sessions more beneficial next year. Over 75% of the parents who attended these trainings indicated that the trainings were beneficial. When asked how these trainings benefitted parents and students, we received comments such as the following:
“Better understanding of how my child will use the computer, rules, and safety.”
“I have learned the steps that are being taken to teach my child Internet safety and how to help him better use his computer.”
“The importance of knowing what my child is doing with his computer.”
“I have benefitted because I know how she will be using the computer in class.”
“Opened up conversations about safety on-line. We appreciate the school taking technology so seriously.”
We had several parents attend who have children at either MMS or MHS and who attended some parent training in conjunction with their 1:World laptop programs. Some of these parents felt the training was unnecessary, but others felt that the training at MIS was well worth their time.
Everyone at MIS wants to thank our wonderful tech department. Their hard work and diligence ensured that our students, parents, and teachers have had a successful experience. We also want to thank our central office administrators and staff and the Monett R-I School Board for this opportunity.
We will be scheduling additional trainings for parents who missed the opportunity to attend our trainings. Even if parents do not want their children taking their laptops home, we believe the information will help them understand how their children are using technology as a learning tool and how to keep their child safe while on-line. So, please come and learn with us.
