Hello! This week we had our first MLC All School Gathering of 2017-2018. All of our students gathered in the auditorium and our fabulous 12th-grade students introduced our amazing kindergarten students to the MLC community. In their introductions, each 12th-grade student shared a time when their kindergarten buddy had showed courage. We have very courageous kindergarteners here at MLC. It was a wonderful way to begin our October!
We also started our 1x8 elective program on Tuesday. It has been going really well. Students have been engaged and excited about these new learning opportunities. Please note that the chain to the blacktop will be up until 2:50 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays due to students in electives using the blacktop. Thank you to all of the volunteers who have offered us their expertise and generosity with their time.
Tomorrow 10/6 I will be hosting a Principal Coffee/Tea (with treats) in the cafeteria from 8:45-9:15. This is an opportunity to meet informally and talk about what's happening at MLC and ask questions. I hope you can join me. Also, if you are interested in being on our MLC Symbol Committee, please let me know. I've already had some parent interest, and we are going to be developing a timeline.
Next week we have the PSAT on Wednesday October 11th for all sophomores from 8:15-12:15. If you have a 10th-grader, make sure they get plenty of sleep the night before. We will not have school on Friday October 13th because it is a statewide inservice day for all of Oregon.
Have a great weekend (it's almost here)!
