Thank you for joining us at our annual “School in Action Night” last Thursday! We hope you enjoyed the special performances by our Honors Jazz Ensemble and the School Choir. This year we decided to combine the incoming “6th Grade Parent/Student Orientation” with School in Action night, so our new families from Jefferson, Seth Boyden, and Tuscan Elementary Schools, could witness the engaging work our students produce.

MMS has started a garden in front of the school, where we will plant vegetables, herbs and flowers for the students to enjoy. Thanks to all the people who have helped get our garden growing with their time, muscle and donations this weekend. A special thanks to Carol Fardin for sponsoring our garden and making sure things get off (or in) the ground.
