Dear MCS Families,
Donít forget that next Thursday 11/10 and Friday 11/11 we have no school in order for parents and teachers to conference together. These conferences are so important to ensure each studentís academic progress. We look forward to seeing all of you at these meetings.
The field trip to Washington State University was a huge success. The children were especially impressed by the Physics Departmentís demonstration. As a result, we have some budding Physics majors. This field trip was made possible by a grant from the Washington State Museum of Art. The Art museum featured an Architect/ Artist. His work captured the idea that STEAM truly is an integrative group of subjects that drives many important careers. All of the museum visits were directly related to our academic pursuit of STEAM subjects.
Representative Ringo and Representative Trail visited the school on Tuesday, November 2nd. They stopped in classrooms and talked to students. A highlight took place in the sixth grade class where students had researched the background of both representatives. As a result, the students prepared questions about working in state government. The representatives were quite positively impressed by the academic performance of our students. Our integrative and challenging academic program here at MCS always makes our students shine when they are asked questions by adults from other settings. As always we thank our parents and teachers for keeping our students challenged and learning.
Have a great weekend.
