What a Senior Sunrise it was for the Class of 2023! #foreverfalcons
The year in the elementary building has started with building community through shared projects like paper quilts, discussing how to fill buckets, finding common ground, and students reading to teachers. It's been a great beginning!
September 14: This afternoon we learned that some of our middle school students are alleging that a classmate made a threat of violence against the school. The student in question denies any threat of violence, and we are counseling this student– as we do all students– to take great care about the way they speak to others. The student has processed this comment with our Principal and School Resource Officer, and we are in touch with the student’s family as well.
September 13, 6:25pm: A roof drain failure caused water from today's rain to infiltrate into MSHS gym lobby, near the auditorium. Maintenance crews will be able to repair the drain, and clean up the area. We will continue to monitor the progress into the evening. Quite a scene to see so much water so quickly, but it might not be as bad as we initially thought!
