Announcements January 22, 2021

Welcome New Students!
We have fifteen new students who have just enrolled at MMC. I hope you will all make them feel welcome and help them adjust to being on our campus. New students and parents, I send this weekly email to keep you informed of everything happening at school. I encourage you to read it thoroughly, or at least skim the headlines, every week. All previous announcements can be found on our website in case you miss anything.

VirtualSC Registration Deadline
If you plan to take any online courses through VirtualSC, the deadline to register is this coming Wednesday, January 27. Submit those course requests today!

Schedule & Learning Model Changes
All requests for in-person class schedule changes should be submitted on this form no later than Friday, January 29. 

Any hybrid student who is considering switching to fully virtual must do so by the course registration deadline, January 27.

Any virtual student who is considering switching to in-person must do so by the course drop deadline, February 16.

Senior Meetings & Graduation Ordering
We are excited to collaborate with Rhodes Graduation to offer online access for senior ordering: not just caps & gowns but a wide variety of graduation apparel, class rings, etc. We will hold two virtual meetings to explain your options, what is REQUIRED for graduation, deadlines, etc. 

Students in Cohort A will attend Monday, February 1 at 3:00.
Students in Cohort B will attend Tuesday, February 2 at 3:00.

Our virtual and MTC students may choose to join in either session. They will both have the same information, so you only need to attend one.

Parents, you are welcome to join either session as well! Please try to attend live so you can ask questions. However, a video recording will be shared after the initial meetings.

Please click the link below to join the webinar:

Webinar ID: 990 3663 4391
Passcode: RHODESGRAD

The deadline to order caps & gowns will be Monday, February 15. Please wait until after the meeting to place your order! If you already placed a paper order form and payment, we will return it to you and help you order through the new online system.

Leadership Survey
Our Leadership class has created a survey to get others’ ideas and opinions about leadership. We encourage ALL students and parents to take just a moment to respond – this will provide them with REAL information to support what they are learning in class.  The survey is anonymous so you may respond freely. 

Technology
Chromebooks should be picked up from advisors each morning and returned/plugged in at the end of the day. If you need another chromebook for use at home, please see Ms. Graham in the office. And if you have issues with connectivity/wifi at home, please see Mrs. G. We want to support all students in their E-Learning and make sure everyone has access. Just let us know what you need!

Refer a Friend!
MMC has several open spaces for new students in the spring semester. We encourage you to share this 30-second MMC commercial with anyone who may be interested. This is also our BE100 challenge for January – any student who shares this on their social media and takes a screenshot will earn a ticket for the next prize drawing. Anyone who refers a student who actually enrolls will receive a $20 gift card to a local restaurant!
