Next week will be the Algebra Bootcamp for those students who are taking the Algebra 1 End of Course Exam. A passing grade on this test is required to graduate. Be sure to be at school for this extra help next week. Biology End of Course Exam and Physical Science CORE exam will also be going on next week.
Students who are scheduled to take the Algebra 1 End of Course Exams will be using a new program called Algebra Nation to practice. This program was developed by the University of Florida and Study Edge as an exam prep resource to help students across Florida pass the Algebra EOC which is required for graduation. Students at MMEC not only have access to the website at home or off campus (accessed via their Facebook Account), but also workbooks for use in class. Along with these study prep resources, MMEC will be hosting an Algebra Boot Camp scheduled the week prior to exam dates. The camp will use the skills and practice from Algebra Nation, basic test taking skills and review to ready our students to do their best. Parents, ask your child about AlgebraNation and help us make these the most successful Algebra EOCs ever. For more information, you can go to www.algebranation.com.
Congratulations to our March Students of the Month! We celebrate their success as students at MMEC.

Your school year is coming to an end shortly and life will get very busy. There are lots of activities to consider and required activities for you to participate in graduation. Please go to your home school senior page to keep track of what deadlines are coming up, especially if you plan to graduate at your home school.
Listed below are the Senior Webpages for each school. CHECK THEM OUT!
There will be a town meeting held in the Moore-Mickens Cafeteria at 7pm, Monday, Mar. 11 to address the closing/moving of Moore-Mickens’ programs to other high school campuses. Superintendent Kurt Browning and Asst. Supt. Ray Gadd will be speaking about their proposals for Moore-Mickens. The public will be allowed questions at the end.
The District School Board of Pasco County is proposing that Moore-Mickens be moved to several east side high schools. Moore-Mickens works to help students succeed because it is a unit, a family, a place to belong and be accepted for being different. For those of you who have not been on our campus, please watch our video to see just who, not what, Moore-Mickens represents.
Students from Mr. Richard’s Environmental Science and Physical Science classes have been studying energy and how it is used. Mr. Ricky Gude, from Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative visited classes to explain the importance electricity to our society and how his company provides this service.
On Feb. 28 and Mar. 1, the classes went to visit the Energy and Marine Center in New Port Richey. While there, they did experiments with both wind and solar energy. Later in the day, they took to the Cotee River estuary in kayaks
with the EMC teacher to explore how islands are created by mangroves and the wildlife that the estuary supports. The EMC is owned and staffed by Pasco County Schools and is available for student visits.

Schools all over the world celebrate this famous author each year on his birthday. Here at Moore-Mickens, the Cyesis parents, their children, and our Pre-K gathered in the media to listen to our special guests, Ms. Girtman and Mrs. Harris, read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. After the story, everyone was invited outdoors for “Fish” activities. We’ve posted photos of the day on our Photo Gallery.
