Middle College Update 12/4/14

Hello, Families!

First, let me take moment to wish all students and families a happy holiday season. This break between semesters is an important time to refresh, reassess, and then return with a new commitment for the spring. I feel good about this past semester; the kids have worked very hard and I appreciate their striving to meet my expectations on a daily basis. I never assign homework between semesters because I believe in making it a true break--and I try to do as little work as possible myself (am hoping to make progress in an ever-growing stack of good books by my bed). I also want to thank so many of you parents who have been so supportive in a variety of ways.

Happy Holidays!

(I've already discussed this "Movember" mustache-situation with the husband and am hoping to see my real husband again soon)

Schedule changes

Students who earn a D or F in a college class must repeat that class if they continue in MC -- I will make schedule changes as soon as I can if needed, and let you know that I am making schedule changes.
