The MLC/ MELC Throughout the month
The Mystic Learning Center is welcoming 2023 with open arms as we hope all of our supporters are too! This month has brought us new activities, glimpses of snow, and most importantly new events to get ready for. Our Snow Tubing Family Event at McIntyre Ski Area was a major success with nearly 50 folks joining and hitting the slopes.
With the cold weather brought more baking and cooking activities at the Mystic such as brownies, pastelitos, snow-cones, and Onigiri (a Japanese treat). Our STEM program has been successful with MLC kids creating parachutes and marshmallow towers. The possibilities have been. endless!
As we move in to February, there are new opportunities fro supporting the Mystic Learning Center Inc. and celebrating Valentine's Day by purchasing our scrumptious $1 chocolate lollipops.
We also are beginning to ramp up educational activities for February's Black History month. We are hoping for the MLC students and staff to learn more during this month on significant black individuals who have shaped the history of our country.
Ultimately, we have a lot in store for the month of February and we are hoping you can join us in whatever way you can!
Your Mystic Learning Center Team
MLC Snowtubing Family Event 2023
MLC had our first annual snow tubing event at McIntyre Ski Area on the 21st of January. Nearly 50 folks from the Mystic hit the slopes today and celebrated the winter season. We zoomed down those hills and made the most of all the snow! Thank you McIntyre for your amazing slopes and cozy atmosphere. We hope to come back again next year☃️🏂❄️
