National Principals Month

October is National Principals Month. We want to take the time to recognize our Principal, Mr. Marlon Firle. Mr. Firle begins his 4th year at MGM this year. We are very thankful for the leadership and support that Mr. Firle provides to MGM and the community. When we asked staff and students for words to describe him this is what we were told: humble, thoughtful, supportive, leader, caring, assertive, positive, and integrity. Thank you for everything you do for MGM!
