Mrs. Patrick,principal Mrs. Patrick’s office is decorated with a lot of ships and pirate themed decorations. A principal’s work is never done so Stanley offers to assist Mrs. Patrick.
Mr. Horka (6th grade)Assistant Principal Mr. Horka is always willing to help out the students at MIS. Maybe one day I’ll be a principal and really be able to sit in Mr. Horka’s chair!
MRS. HINKEL (5th Grade)Assistant Principal I hope Mrs. Hinkel won’t notice that I’m on the hunt for candy! She usually lets me have a piece from her candy drawer. Stanley likes visiting Mrs. Hinkel because of the great candy selection at her desk, but you have to remember to ALWAYS ASK FIRST! It’s okay if she says no.
Proud to be a Merrillville pirate! Mrs. Kistinger has some cool pirate stuff! All I need is an eye patch and a hat. On some Fridays during the school year you can donate $1 to wear a hat on spirit day. The money helps fund PBIS for pirate buck rewards earned by students.
Throughout the day, the Office GREETs FAMILIES, STAFF, AND VISITORS It is important to greet ALL visitors with a friendly smile! “There’s no goofing around when it comes to doing a great job!” Ms. Barb told Stanley.
In the office and copy rooms , We use the copy machines to make sure that the students take home important information about our school, community, and events!
Some of the places in the office are off limits to students. These places like a safe and record keeping area help keep student information confidential.
Not only does MIS keep information safe, but we all feel safe with our security officers being an important part of the MIS Community!
Assistance Anyone? Stanley helps locate information on the computer with Ms. Patti. Stanley is helping Ms. Olivia with data entry.
Hope you learned your ABC’s because filing is an important job in a school! You need to know alphabetical order if you want to help with the files. It sure was a long way to climb to get to the files, but they really needed my help!
Who helps keep our school, equipment and building clean and working properly…the best maintenance and custodial staff ever! Do you need something fixed? Fix-It Stanley is on the job! The bathrooms are always neat, clean and filled with supplies.
Another busy day At MIS Ms. Angie and Ms. Renee get ready to enter information for our new student Stanley Lambchop. Is he a TWIN? Stanley, will you be riding the bus to school? I don’t see your name on my bus list.
USING TECHNOLOGY TO HELP WITH OUR WORK AND LEARNING Everyone at MIS has access to technology in the computer labs, classrooms or using I-PADS. “Do you prefer an I-PAD or a personal computer?” asked Stanley.
The superheroes of the technology department Ms. Margaret Mr. Mike
Our diagnostic staff helps teachers learn about the needs and abilities of their students so they will be successful.
Do you feela little under the weather? Ms. Angie takes Stanley to visit Nurse Brackbecause he’s not feeling well. Don’t forget you need a nurse referral! Nurse Brack takes wonderful care of her students at MIS It’s just like being at home.
Everyone has the ability to learn, but it’s not always easy and there are lots of people at mis to help you out! Stanley helps Mrs. Cox with supplies Mrs. Campos gives Stanley a hand up so he can see around the office.
Intermediate School is a great time to start thinking about your future! Mrs. Jones is the MIS Guidance Counselor What college you would like to attend or what job you want to have after high school? Ms. Jones gets help from Stanley sorting college catalogues.
More people that help us learn and be successful! I’m heading out with the Reading 180 specialist! I sure hope she has some cool things to read. Need a place for before/after school? Come with me to Daycare. We can help with homework too!

I’ve really enjoyed my adventures at MIS… meeting new people and visiting classes around your school! Is this a giant guitar? Ah! Beautiful violin music.
The Original Flat Stanley Project was created in Ontario Canada in 1995 by Dale Hubert, M. Ed. so children could learn about faraway places. Children from all over the world have created and sent their “Stanley’s “ on worldwide adventures. Presidents, movie stars, and performers have taken Stanley to places he couldn’t imagine he would ever visit. If you would like to learn more about the Flat Stanley Project or just make a Flat Stanley of your own (yes, there are ones for girls too) visit the website: www.flatstanleyproject.com
