Musical Chairs? Well, actually, it's musical books!

Ms. Hudson's 7th grade students visited the CAVE for the first time. They played a musical chairs game where students moved around the CAVE and when the music stopped they found a chair in front of a book shelf. They then chose any book , read only the first sentence, replaced, and repeat. When the music started back they were moving again. Students found their first great book and could not wait to check it out!

MGSD Calendar Survey

Hello MGSD Parents,

Below are links to two 2019 - 2020 DRAFT calendars. One calendar is a traditional calendar much like what our district follows now. The other calendar is a non-traditional calendar that results in a slightly longer school year but with more breaks throughout the year rather than one longer summer break. Under both calendars, students would attend school the same amount of days unless they are invited to attend the intersession (summer session). Once you have had a chance to review the two calendars, we would love for you to give feedback on your preference by utilizing the Google Form embedded below. Thank you!
