Michigan International Prep School’s Learning Lab in Howell was abuzz last week during its back-to-school open house. Several local MIPS families were able to come by the Learning Lab to speak with their Mentors, Mentor/Teachers, and administrators for the 2019-2020 school year. Students all received back-to-school kits to help them stay organized and creative during the upcoming school year.
Staff members said this was a wonderful opportunity for students, families, and school staff to spend some time together and discuss initiatives and exciting projects that will be taking place this year at the school.
MIPS Mentor/Teacher Brenda Van Eck said, “It was great to meet families at our Open House. Making personal connections in our virtual world is always a highlight of our job.”
MIPS families from all over the local area attended the event and enjoyed pizza with one another and school staff.
“These types of functions are fundamental to the relationships we strive to build with each and every one of our students and their families,” said Director of Program Advancement Charlie Carver.
MIPS is a tuition-free charter school that currently serves over 600 students in grades K-12 across Michigan. MIPS has Learning Labs in Howell, Sandusky, Oak Park, Detroit, Ortonville, and one in Saginaw coming soon. You can learn more by clicking here.
