It is provided for academic support and enhancement; students can work independently or in small groups to complete class work, to work on and research projects, to complete assessments when they have been absent from school or need to re-take to improve their score, to work on NovaNet classes, and to get help with specific classes from their teacher or other teachers that are familiar with that subject area and are staffing the Cafe. There are various subject areas represented by the teachers staffing Cyber Cafe on a daily basis. In some classes, teachers may assign work outside the normal curriculum when time does not permit them to do those extras in class, things like watching parts of a movie that is too lengthy to show in class, or assigning further research on a topic for students that are excelling beyond the pace of the majority of their class. Light snacks are available to students at times that will be posted here at school (one earlier in the afternoon, one later). Snacks are always served in, or right outside, the cafeteria. Cyber Cafe is there for MHS students - we look forward to seeing you there!! Questions can be directed to Brad Shedd at firstname.lastname@example.org

Celebrate My Drive is a different approach to a leading public health risk. Car crashes are the number one killer of teens, and a teen’s first year on the road is the most dangerous. Using research as a guide,State Farm
is approaching teen driver safety, a winnable public health battle, by engaging teens while they learn to drive in a supportive and positive way.
