Back from Spring Break today and there was a creative space open to students at MMS in the media center. They worked on comic book magnets to decorate the library. How cool are these!? MMS plans to have a DIY space set up with a new project every other week. The next one will be homemade Chinese finger traps. Students will get to keep all their projects! #MCUSD2 #Mattoon #MMS

Mattoon CUSD #2 bus drivers will be taking part in a mock bus crash training exercise with the Mattoon Fire Department at First Class Wrecker Service in Mattoon. Training is scheduled for April 13, 14, and 15 at 9 AM. The Fire Department will take two of our oldest buses, flip them on their side, and train drivers as if they are on an actual accident scene. They will make entry into the buses using extraction tools. Transportation Director Chris Parr believes it will be very beneficial for the District staff and all our First Responders. “It is a great time to observe, ask questions that come up, and see what they will do when they arrive on the scene, which will help us see what we need to do on our end. Knowing what to expect from all first responders and having those conversations beforehand is huge for all departments involved. Nobody ever wants something like this to happen, but I am excited we get this opportunity to prepare ourselves if it ever does.” We would like to extend our gratitude to our First Responders for their willingness to be proactive and prepared in their service to our students and community. #MCUSD2 #Mattoon #Transportation

*Wednesday WIGs Student Takeover* Hey! I'm Isabella Compton and I'm a student at MMS in 7th grade. One of my favorite things we do at school is WIGs! WIGs are wildly important goals for all. Our principal, Mr. Pugh, has displayed his personal WIG to encourage others to reach for their WIGS. His goal is to be in the halls during transition times 80% of the time to be there for his students. My personal WIG is to read a book of a different genre by Spring Break! Right now, I'm enjoying A Good Girls Guide to Murder by: Holly Jackson. #MCUSD2 #Mattoon #MMS #WednesdayWIGs #WildlyImportantGoals

Mrs. Minger at the Mattoon Middle school is asking for greeting card donations. They do not need to be entire cards, just the front. She is planning on having students create DIY greeting card journals after Spring Break. You can drop off donations at the MMS Office or the Mattoon Public Library. #MCUSD2 #Mattoon #MMS

It's National School Librarian Day and National Library Week and our celebration of Mattoon District Librarians continues. We want to say thank you to Mrs. Minger who works at Mattoon Middle School. " I never feel like I am coming to work, as my job is so wonderful and I love it so much that it never feels like "work". I LOVE our students here so much and try to learn every single kiddos name so when they come into the Media Center I can call them by name! I want each and every student who comes into the Media Center to feel like it is a safe place where they are loved and cared for and valued. We always have fun things happening in the Media Center - like a spring egg hunt or a collaborative puzzle or collaborative coloring pages, or DIY Projects. I just visited a few public libraries this week that have awesome Maker Spaces, so I will begin implementing new things in the library to meet that need as well!" - Mrs. Minger #MCUSD2 #Mattoon #MMS

Mr. Enyart's 6th-grade students completed a “brain dump” this week on the tables in the MMS Media Center. Students read a book together and at the end of a section, Mr. Enyart asked them about one topic and they “dumped their brains” and wrote everything they remembered about that topic on the dry-erase tables! We love having these tables - so much fun! #MCUSD2 #Mattoon #MMS
