LIBRARY OPEN ON THURDAY MORNINGS

The Mira Loma Middle School Library will be open on Thursday mornings from 9:00 to 10:30 as a quiet study hall.  The library will be staffed by our two resident substitute teachers, Ms. Ascencio and Ms. Austin.  Students must work quietly and independently.  They may request help in any subject they need assistance with. The computers in the library will be available for research and typing papers or completing projects.

Students that are disruptive will be asked to leave the library and may lose this privilege for the remainder of the semester.

SEMESTER 1 PROGRESS 1 REPORTS

Progress Reports for Semester 1/Progress 1 (first 6 weeks) will be sent home on Tuesday, September 30th with each student.  Parents please review these grades with your student.  Students have until December 18th to maintain or raise their grades for the Semester Report Card.  There will be another 6 week progress report sent home around November 12th.

Reminder: Eligibility for ROAR days and extracurricular activities (dances, field trips, after school activities)  is based on NO F’s, NO suspensions and NO fines.

Camcorders Needed… (a few anyway)

Parents:

Do you have an old camcorder collecting dust at home?  Would you consider donating it to Mira Loma Middle School?

The Video Production Class is looking for one or two of a few specific models of older Canon camcorders that can provide Component (Green, Blue, Red) output.  These are highly compatible with the new equipment we are using for our daily broadcast, (and ironically, newer model camcorders are not compatible).

The model numbers below will work great.  Some of those were fairly cheap units, and others were highly expensive models.  Most of them use flash memory, but a few of them are the older-style DV-tape camcorders.  (We will be using these as studio cameras, so even if the tape drive doesn’t work well, it won’t matter).

We ONLY have a need for any of the following models.  Any other units will not be of use to us–please dispose of properly.  If you have an old unused one matching one of these model numbers and can donate, drop it off at the office.
