Good Evening,

We strive to make Mineola schools warm, caring places focused on our district mission statement. “The mission of the Mineola Union Free School District is to inspire each student to be a life-long learner, pursue excellence, exhibit strength of character and contribute positively to a global society.” In an effort to keep our community informed and to facilitate a deeper understanding of what is taking place in the district, we’ve embarked upon a project to create short informational video segments. We are calling the project Open Mic @ Mineola Public Schools. As implied by the term Open Mic, these video segments are a “show” where multiple voices will be heard: administrators, educators, parents, and the larger community.

Please be sure to watch our latest episode, which can be viewed at www.OpenMicMineola.com. Our current episode highlights our newly constructed High School and Middle School Fab labs. Viewers can see how our students enjoy the new spaces and some of the projects we are starting. This episode also highlights some of our teachers and their impressions of how technology can impact learning. Once at the website, viewers can use the tabs to see some of the additional segments that include interviews with teachers, students, and administrators.

Note that there is no registration required. We will soon be adding ways for you to participate by sending in your thoughts and comments.

OpenMic@Mineola is our commitment to keeping our community informed and aware of district happenings. We look forward to having it evolve into a forum that is a meaningful part of our partnership. We hope you enjoy it!

Sincerely,

Michael P. Nagler, Ed.D.
