Have you looked at our school website lately? Jenny Maras, business teacher at MAHS, continues to make improvements to our school's website and I would like to take the opportunity to explain some of them to you. Here are a few items regarding website navigation:

• Main links appear horizontally across top

• Sub link for each section appear on their individual pages

• Faculty contacts can be found for the district, high school, and elementary on their respective pages.

• Faculty members with personal websites are found there as well.

• The link sections on the right are meant for quick reference.

• The general district calendar can be found in "Calendar" section

• Daily activities/sports can be found under the "Athletic" section

• Parents can quickly access the portal under the "Quick Links" section

• High School and Elementary handbooks are found under their respective sections.

• Welcome messages from administrators are found under their respective sections

• Any feedback can be directed to the technical editor by clicking that email link at the very bottom of the site.

Ms. Maras also wanted me to pass along this message, "a website is never finished. Ideas, feature stories, photos are always welcomed."

7th - 8th grade Targeted Services

Morris Area Schools and Detroit Lakes Area Learning Center are partnering to provide extended day learning opportunities for students. Targeted Services will begin on Monday, Nov. 28. It will run Monday-Thursday from 3:20 to 4:50 in Room 42 (Ms. Jones's room) in the high school. The primary focus of Targeted Services is academic instruction; however, this program supports the whole learner. The academic skills include reading, math and writing skills development. The school skills include work completion, goal setting, test preparation, and organization

Here are some great things about this opportunity:

• Taught by a licensed teacher

• Low student to teacher ratio

• Students have additional time for learning new skills, and improving old skills

• Prepares children for future success in specific curricular areas, especially on grade level assessments

• No cost to participate

If you have any questions about Targeted Services please contact Principal Mike Coquyt at 320-589-4400 or email We have also created a Targeted Services website. To find out more about the website simply Google "MAHS Targeted Services".
