This week has been Teacher Appreciation WeekTeacher Appreciation Week was established by the National PTA back in 1984, it is a time to honor the individuals who lend their passion and skills to educating our children. To be honest, this past school year should be recognized as Teacher Appreciation Year. As teachers made adaptations to keep students and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Mediapolis teachers went above and beyond the call of duty by rapidly learning and using new technology, adapting instructional strategies for an online environment, covering for each other’s classes as needed so students could continue face-to-face instruction. Even through all of the challenges, Mediapolis teachers focused, first and foremost, on supporting students no matter what! Whether students were in the classroom or online, Mediapolis teachers have been a constant for students during a time that has been filled with uncertainty for all of us. There has been a lot of talk over the past year about essential workers. Our teachers demonstrated, time and again, that they were not only essential employees but critical employees for the well being of our students and our community!Please don’t let the end of this week mark the end of your appreciation for our teachers.Greg RaySuperintendentMediapolis Community School ...

Early Childhood, PK, TK and Kindergarten UpdateParents/Guardians,We have had ninety 5 year olds for kindergarten round up this year! This is awesome, but it also presents some challenges for us. Working through the challenges in an effort to best serve and meet the needs of 90 Kindergarten students we have been forced to make some changes that we would like to communicate to all of our constituents to provide adequate time for families to make plans for the 2021-2022 school year.The first change will be to add a fourth section of kindergarten to keep the student to teacher ratios more appropriate for 5 year old students. Adding another section of kindergarten takes an additional classroom, which leads to the second change.We will no longer be able to serve tuition paying 4 year olds (Preschoolers). We simply do not have the classroom space needed. We have considered several options, but none of them were viable to meet the needs of 4 year old students.We have opened discussions with the Mediapolis Community Daycare to explore future options of expanding early childhood education services in our community. We look forward to continuing that conversation as we explore the possibilities of a partnership. ... See MoreSee Less
