Archived webcast of the Maconaquah Space Interview

Amateur Radio International Space Station Contact -- Maconaquah Elementary was selected to be one of 12 schools in the United States to have a conversation with an astronaut that is currently working and living on the International Space Station.  As the space station orbits over Maconaquah on Thursday, August 27, a select group of students from Maconaquah Elementary will have a chance to conduct a live interview with Kimiya Yui, a Japanese astronaut.  Thanks to the work of Mrs. Knolinski, Bill McAlpin, and the Miami county HAM Radio Club for helping Maconaquah students dream BIG!


NEWS FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

WELCOME BACK EVERYONE!!!


Each summer break seems to go faster than the one before.  This summer was no exception.

There was a lot of rain and the Maconaquah staff was very busy this summer. 


Reasons for Choosing Us!

As I reviewed each of the student transfer requests for the 2015-16 school year that we have received, we have students transferring from Peru, Logansport, Southeastern Schools (Lewis Cass), Kokomo, Noblesville, Converse, Galveston, Cicero, and North Miami.  A large number of our transfer requests are from students who have been with us for multiple school years.  I was particularly interested in the reasons that parents gave for requesting a transfer into the Maconaquah Schools, some of them are:

§  Quality of education provided

§  Parents were Maconaquah graduates

§  One or more parents are Maconaquah employees

§  We appreciate the safe environment of Maconaquah Schools

§  Teachers and other staff members are meeting the unique needs of special needs students

§  Technology is superior

§  Maconaquah School Corporation is always innovating

§  Like the balanced calendar

§  I am a teacher within this corporation. I want my child to receive a quality education. I want him to receive all the opportunities we provide our students: 1:1 technology, balanced calendar, eLearning days, and STEM instruction

§  We love Maconaquah Schools. We appreciate the educational benefits and opportunities that are provided to each of my children
