Mabry Celebrates and Gives Thanks (VP)
On November 15, 2005, Mabry Middle School paused to celebrate four significant accomplishments at our school:
- 27 years of outstanding service to our community
- Completion of $8.8 million in SPLOST renovations and additions
- Scholastic and Intel's prestigious Schools of Distinction Award for Technology Innovation
- Georgia's Silver Award for Academic Achievement: Highest Percentage of Students At and Above Grade Level
In the video podcast below is Dr. Tyson's presentation at the dinner celebration. He discusses each achievement and ends the presentation by answering the question, "Where do we go from here?". The goal he sets before us at Mabry: "In order to meet the unfettered demands of the global job market, we need to turn school on its head by changing school from an information distribution system to a collection of collaborative knowledge fabrication systems, and let's start that shift here at Mabry." Listen to find out what he means by this significant challenge.
If you were unable to attend our celebration, enjoy this "virtual celebration!"
