The Information Center at MVMS is open from 7:45 am - 5:00 pm. In the morning, students need to get a pass from the duty teacher or the office. In the afternoon, students need to sign up in the office prior to the end of the day to use the Info Center and sign up for the late bus (if needed). Our before and after school hours are a great opportunity for students to access the resources that we have available, use our Makerspace, work on class projects and assignments. We also have quite of few computers for students to use for class projects and assignments.
Welcome to Our Makerspace! A place where we can learn, design, create, collaborate, make, and more! In our Makerspace, we have 4 rotating stations with 4 different activities. Each activity usually stays active for about 2 weeks, but there is always something new each week. For a current list of what is happening in our Makerspace, please check the PowerSchool Daily Bulletin or visit the Information Center Blog.
