Welcome back to MITCS! I hope you all had an enjoyable and restful summer vacation.
I’d like to start this letter by celebrating two recent events. First, we saw the class of 2023 graduate from MITCS back in June. It was an honor to welcome friends and families to the graduation ceremony at the Willows, in Industry PA. Our commencement speakers addressed the class and spoke eloquently about the graduate’s futures and wished them well. There were many smiles and tears of joy. Congratulations! Second, a big thank you to everyone in our school community who helped build the float for the Midland Fourth of July parade. It was wonderful to have our school represented in this event—one that has become an important part of Midland’s legacy—and to see how the project brought so many people together.
I would also like to thank the teachers, staff, and parents who helped make our inaugural school year such as success. As we move into this second school year and continue to grow and improve, we remain dedicated to providing our students with the best opportunities to build a better future using MITCS’ authentic learning approach. A few details for the 2023–24 school year:
Our industry-skilled instructors will continue to provide students with hands-on experiences, introduce them to real-world applications, and take them on field trips to visit employers.
We have solidified our core subject teaching staff with certified professionals who are dedicated to teaching your children and giving them the tools they’ll need to be successful.
Pathway courses will remain as 90-minute daily blocks. Core classes will be 40-45 minutes daily.
Personal Learning Time (PLT) will be 40–45 minutes three days per week.
Home Base will be two days per week.
And students will have opportunities to join the student council, participate in formal dances, establish clubs, and create projects.
MITCS will begin classes on August 23, 2023. We are excited to begin our second year with both our returning students and the new students joining our community. Let’s continue to build futures together!
