It was great to meet all of the students and their families at the first Mineral Point School District registration day on Thursday, August 4. I enjoyed the introductions and nice conversations with everyone regarding the upcoming school year.

Students also had the opportunity to get their school pictures taken before the year begins. I like this approach instead of during the school year as it is less disruptive to the instructional day.


Students show their smiles for school pictures.

The second and final registration day is Tuesday, August 16, also in the middle school/high school cafeteria. If you attend, please say “Hi” and introduce yourself. I look forward to meeting everyone connected with the Mineral Point public school system.
