Great opportunity for middle school students…

Middlesex Community College’s Meriden Center  offers a special Saturday Enrichment Academy to high achieving middle school students from the surrounding school districts. This fall we have participants from Southington, Meriden, and homeschooled students.

The academy is taught by Middlesex Community College faculty. We have a few remaining openings in our academy beginning this Saturday, October 11th.

The Academy meets on 5 consecutive Saturdays beginning 10/11 and has afternoon session openings (12:30-4:00). The session is split into two programs Video Production and Fingerprinting/Forensics.

We may also have a few morning spots available (9:00-12:30) in the programs mentioned above, Web Design, and Mystery Writing. Students choose 2 programs (typically both in the am or both in the pm) and the cost is $200.00 for the 5 weeks.

Please contact me if you are interested in registering your child fore one of these programs or would like more information.

Thank you.

Student Presentation at Moran….

Good afternoon,

Presenter Josh Gunderson will be coming to Moran to talk with students and parents on October 22nd.  His presentation, entitled “My Digital Life” will deal with the benefits and hazards of social media use.   This presentation is in response to 1) our desire to provide as much education as possible for students who are using electronic devices on a daily basis that give them unprecedented access to the world, 2) an uptick in disciplinary issues surrounding online use, 3) a call from parents for resources to help their children navigate social media use in a safe, and developmentally appropriate way.

We will run an alternate building schedule that day, which will be tweaked to accommodate 2 presentations and will offer an evening session for parents at 7 pm in the Sheehan auditorium.  Full details in terms of schedule to follow but we will likely run 1 session from 8:10-8:55 for grade 6 and Rising Stars, and the second from 9-9:45 for SuperNovas and grade 8.  We will have a definitive schedule early next week.

Thank you,

Moran Administration
