MGM Serves First Responders!

Join Us in Service to the First Responders of our Community

Good afternoon! I hope this newsletter finds all of you thankful and glad to be back in a routine. I was glad to come and be with your students today. I am emailing to catch you up on some things we will be doing over the next few weeks during 7th grade CREW here at MGM.

The CREW lessons scheduled for last week centered around the history of 9/11 and how we can honor our local first responders. As a leadership group, we decided to continue with these lessons as the timing of it will be a very authentic way to show our students how important first responders are to us and that we appreciate them.

As a component of these lessons and with the help of some first responders, we have compiled a list of useful supplies for the first responders in our community. This will be one of our service projects for this year to give back to the people that are so helpful during a time of crisis.

Click the supply list to see the suggested items. Please note that your contribution is not limited to the items on this list. This list is simply suggestions that will help first responders complete their jobs to the best of their ability. If you and your student can contribute have your student bring the items in to his/her CREW leader. We will be in CREW everyday the rest of this week as well as next week. We are in the process of rescheduling a time to honor our first responders and present them with the supplies and THANK YOUs. These items will be distributed to 12 different local first responder groups in our community including law enforcement, EMTs/paramedics, and fire fighters.

We will continue with these lessons tomorrow and Wednesday, and will begin our previously scheduled CREW lessons on Thursday and Friday of this week. The later lessons this week will review our habits of scholarship and introduce our students to Student Led Conferences. We will create these plans and invite you in at a later time to hear your student explain his or her areas of weakness as well as strengths. Our students will also set specific goals for themselves to work towards during the school year. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Suggested Donations: You may drop these items off with your CREW leader until 10/1/18.
