How to be a successful student? Work with your Librarian!
What does a school librarian do?
School librarians are educators who cross disciplines and grade levels as they work to empower every student with the skills, resources, and tools to:
inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge;
draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge;
share knowledge and participate ethically and productively as members of our democratic society;
pursue personal and aesthetic growth.
The ability to think, create, share, and grow in school and beyond is called Learning4Life.
Need a County library card? All MICDS students and faculty are eligible to sign up for a St. Louis County Library card regardless of what county you reside in! STL County Library has an amazing audio book collection which makes it well worth it!

PanoRAMa: The MICDS Middle School Yearbook
Hey Rams, the Yearbook Committee is working hard to capture the story and memories of your school year.
Want to order a yearbook? Go to www.yearbookforever.com and type in MICDS. Yearbooks are $35.00 and must be paid for with a credit card. Good things happen to those who wait, so you'll need to wait for the last week of school to get your yearbook. Thanks for buying a yearbook!
