MGM HONORS VETERANS
Dear MGM Family,
You are cordially invited to our Meadow Glen Middle School Veterans Breakfast.
On Friday, November 16, 2018 we will honor our active duty and retired military veteran family members with a special breakfast. Students are encouraged to bring veteran family members to enjoy breakfast with them. The breakfast will be from 7:30 am-8:00 am. Immediately following the breakfast, we will have a school wide assembly where we honor our veterans. We would love for you to stay for that, if possible.
Please RSVP to the breakfast by signing up online at https://goo.gl/forms/Dkp7vzZIkMQwmGPu2 no later than Friday, November 9, 2018, so that final preparations can be made.
We look forward to honoring our veterans. Thank you for your service.
