With the school year and a first year of the BLAST program now coming to a close, Mahomet Area Youth Club is turning attention to planning for the MAYC summer program that will run from June 9 through August 8 at the MAYC facility on Franklin Street.
It's no secret that Mahomet-Seymour schools are a top selling point for the village.
But district officials are underlining that point as the countdown to the opening of the new Middletown Prairie school begins.
As construction crews continue to work on the new Middletown Prairie Elementary, Mahomet-Seymour administrators are already looking ahead to move-in day.
They’re scheduled to take possession of the section of the building that houses administrative offices in mid-April, with classroom move-in set for late June or early July.
Parents of Mahomet-Seymour Junior High students were notified this week of some major changes at the school next year—changes that are still evolving, administrators say.
Next year the school will transition from a junior-high model to one with the elements of a middle school.
Mahomet-Seymour’s school board has picked a name for the district’s new early childhood center: Middletown Prairie.

Mahomet-Seymour High School was recognized last week by the College Board by being named to the 4th Annual AP District Honor Roll.
The AP District Honor Roll is based on three years' worth of testing data, and recognizes efforts to open AP classroom doors to more students while maintaining or improving the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher.
Members of the Mahomet-Seymour school board got a chance to see the blueprints for the district’s newest school come to life on Monday night, as architects led them on a tour of the new early childhood center.
Crews from Broeren Russo are on track to have the building enclosed by late November so that interior work can continue through the chilly months.
As the new early childhood center rises on the east side of town, Mahomet-Seymour school leaders are looking for a way to honor the memories of Middletown.
The current Middletown Early Childhood Center, located on Division Street, was built in 1925 as Mahomet High School. Since that time, several generations of students have passed through its doors.
