  • 8th graders get close-up look at construction trades

    Mark Bills Middle School 8th grade students along with other Peoria Public School 8th graders, will attend the Construction Industry Career Expo on September 19. Representatives from a variety of trades including electricians, carpenters, plasterers, steamfitters, bricklayers, operating engineers and sheet metal workers will talk to students about post-high-school apprenticeships programs and career opportunities. Each area will give students a chance to participate in hands-on activities, including bending electrical conduit, operating a front-loader and working with mortar, plaster and concrete. Students will even try their spray-painting skills with the help of a virtual spray paint demonstration.

  • ReAd EvErYdAy and make it a HaBiT!

    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.
