Thank you for coming to our Back To School Night last week and the previous week. It was wonderful to meet families and to come together as a community. I realize not everyone was able to attend, so I've posted my presentation to our school website for families to check out. We will also be posting information about Talented and Gifted (TAG) on our website in case families were unable to attend the meetings.
Although we had to cancel our all school picnic last week due to weather, we had a very successful ice cream social on Friday! Our cross-age buddies came together and shared a sweet treat to end our week. The sun even came out for a bit:)
This week we have a Shakespeare meeting for parents/guardians of 6th-12th grade students who are participating in the Fall Festival of Shakespeare. The meeting is at 5:30pm in the MLC auditorium. Students will walk back to MLC from their rehearsal, and meet their families at 5:30. For more information about Fall Festival of Shakespeare, you can check out their Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/ events/1876436259340952/? active_tab=discussion
Just a reminder that on Friday we have a K-12 early release where all students will be dismissed at 12:00.
Have a great week!

News on the all-school picnic
Hello MLC families! Unfortunately, due to the weather, we are canceling tomorrow's All School Picnic at Gabriel Park. We are demonstrating our flexibility and adaptive nature by shifting to an All School Ice Cream Social on Friday from 10:30-11:45 before the K-8 early release. We will have music and games on our blacktop area and we will be doing fun activities as a whole school.
Please remember that MLC does not observe the PPS late starts, so school starts at its regular time tomorrow. We will do our PPS half-day professional development on Friday 9/29, and the whole school K-12 will have an early release.
Let me know if you have any questions,
The first PTSA meeting of the 2017-18 school year is this Thursday, 9/7/2017 at 3:30pm in the MLC Library.
Childcare will be provided by KCLC. If your child is not already enrolled at KCLC for that Thursday afternoon you can RSVP on their behalf. This service is cost free for parents attending PTSA meetings. Please complete the form here to RSVP.
This month's meeting will include elections for several of this year's board officers. We will also approve our budget for this school year. If you are unable to attend the proposed budget will be posted on the PTSA bulletin board outside the library on the morning of September 6th for public viewing.
Hope to see you all there!
