This is a unique program for ski and snowboard athletes who want to take their sport to the next level. It is offered to students in 7th grade through 12th grade. These athletes have a modified schedule in the winter months, where they take their core classes in the morning and are on snow in the afternoons.

The following disciplines are available: Freeski Park and Pipe, Alpine Racing, Freestyle Skiing, Big Mountain Skiing, Snowboard and Nordic Skiing.

For more information on the Academy program and how to apply, go to the Winter Park Competition Center website and click on the "Academy" link:

Principal Advisory Committee (A parent sounding board and communication team to the principal)
Parents,

I would like to invite you to the first Principal Advisory Committee on Oct. 5th 5-6pm in the MPHS Library. This is an opportunity to listen to each other. It is for parents to become more acquainted with the inner workings of the high school and for the principal to get a sense of things that are on our parent’s minds. We have had a small but mighty group of parents in the past and to be frank, this principal cannot do the work of the school without the parent partnership. I hope to see many of you that attended the Middle School PAC. Perhaps there are some opportunities to grow the PAC beyond just an information meeting. Scholarships, school needs and program helps could be part of the PAC purview. Meetings rarely go beyond an hour, however, I will stay as long as the conversation requires. Cookies and water are always available. Hope to see you there!

Social Media and Your Teen
Of late, we have been confronted with a number of negative student behaviors, i.e., cyber-bullying, harassments, fatigue, and distracted learning. A common link that exacerbates the problem appears to be unregulated, unfettered use of social media, as in FACEBOOK, SNAPCHAT, INSTAGRAM and general cellphone/computer technology use.

Although these tools can be used for very good reasons, they can also be abused. For the school, I ask the teachers to have a plan and expectation regarding the use of technology, Chromebooks, websites and cellphones. If you don’t, “you get what you get”.

Certainly, in the home, if you do not have a plan, if you have not discussed rules and use of technology with your child, if there is not a time where the technology is turned off, THEN “you get what you get”.

As I speak to students that are harassed on FACEBOOK and a student reveals that they have two thousand “friends”, I am overwhelmed to think of the possibilities of predators “trolling” the child’s site and information. This is really dangerous. Look, teens are trying to figure out their social setting everyday with their peers. Many do this well. However, missteps occur during this time of life. They learn in those moments. Let’s not just hand the children a tool that complicates their world exponentially without talking to them about expectations and limitations regarding its use.

The school addresses cyber safety in the Freshman Seminar. Please visit the attached websites for more information. Review information with your child, discuss limits and expectations regarding technology use. Don’t just leave this for your child to sort out online with a stranger. Being an informed and involved parent is never a bad thing. Visit the sites. Have a conversation with your child.

-Mr. Schnellinger

SchoolBlocks offers a unique and powerful personalized search system. A member of the public, searching for "homework" might see an announcement from the school as the first result. However, if the user is logged in, they would see their teacher’s latest homework assignment as the top result.
