While technology, just a short time ago, was seen as a tool, resource or even a novelty, if you will, it is now embedded in most classrooms and courses of study. It is expected that students have a school-issued gmail account, utilize Google Classroom, and prepare presentations, Podcasts or YouTube videos via web-based programs. Students artwork is posted on Artsonia , an electronic art gallery. (which is supercool, by the way!). Technology has become a vital part of all of lives- whether at work, school or at home. So, it is imperative that our children have as much education as possible about the proper use of technology and keeping them safe and secure.Our 7th grade students will begin using a program called Learning.com, in the near future, that is designed to offer lessons on Digital Citizenship along with helping students develop / enhance their keyboarding skills along with other skills. Students will work with this program one day each week during their Academic Assist period. We feel this is a great way for students to learn ways to keep themselves, and the work they do, protected. Check out this article (click on link below) on the “9 P’s” of Digital Citizenship.
As a middle school, we believe interdisciplinary units and a cross-curricular approach to learning will encourage connections among all subject areas and address the needs of our 21st century learners. All of our middle school students receive instruction in the curricular areas of language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Additionally, students are able to select from an assortment of elective courses throughout their two years of middle school, which include vocal or instrumental music, art, technology, or family/consumer science.
In addition to our excellent academic program, we have a variety of extra- and co-curricular activities that our seventh and eighth grade students enjoy. These extra- and co-curricular activities include ski club, athletics, band, choir, and a variety of clubs.
Our new Middle School, which is being built as a part of our is part of the $81 million construction and renovation bond project will be completed and open to students in grades six, seven and eight in August 2016. The new middle school will be a combination of Center and Albion Middle School students and is in the process of being built on the land behind Center.
