EVERY DAY from 7:40 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. all students and teachers will participate in Sustained Silent Reading in their Homeroom. This time will give students a chance to read for pleasure, as well as increasing their reading abilities. We believe that having daily time set aside for reading will set the tone for all that we do at Mark Bills. This is not a study hall and not an advisory time. No classwork will be done by students. No grading will be done by teachers. Remember that this is SILENT reading. Students and Teachers will not talk or disturb others for the entire reading time! Everyone should bring a book to read every day, however, each Homeroom will have reading materials available.
Attendance Counts! Every student, every class, every day! MBS is striving for 100% attendance every day!
Planners were distributed to students the first week of school. Please read over the Student Handbook inside, sign and return the signature page.
Students have already started checking out Library books and taking AR tests. Ask your student what they are reading for SSR!
Please schedule Doctor and Dentist appointments after school hours, so as not to disrupt the school day. Make sure to get the Sports Physical when you get the School Physical, so that students are ready for anything.
Keep yourself active but cool by hiking the shaded trails at Forest Park, walking or riding the Rock Island Trail to Junction City or the ice cream shop in the Heights, or catching a cool breeze off the Illinois River down at the Riverfront. Maybe you will find a few Pokemon on your walks as well!
