MJS Weekly Update

December 3, 2021

Dear MJS Community,

We hope you are able to join us for some of our upcoming winter events. Tonight and tomorrow is our fall play Head Elf. Tickets are still available by clicking here. The shows are tonight at 7:00 pm and tomorrow at 4:00 pm. You can also purchase Kiss the Cast Candygrams online at this link. They are also available in person.


Next week we are hosting our Band Winter concerts on Tuesday, December 7 at 7 pm and our TREP$ Marketplace on Wednesday, December 8 at 6 pm. Our TREPS marketplace is a great event to shop for holiday gifts and discover the wonderful products our junior school students have worked to create, market, and sell. Our book fair will be running during both of these events in the library.



MJS Book Fair Next Week

We still have some open slots for volunteers to help Ms. Bessin run our book fair. Use this SignUp Genius Link if you are interested. The schedule for when classes will shop at the fair is noted below.

MEF Corner

Our mission statement at MEF includes phrases like "enrich curriculums" and "inspire faculty and staff" and "energize the creative and academic lives of students." What it all means is perfectly illustrated in this photo of a joyful and proud Madison student who designed and printed winter-themed drink coasters on a 3D printer at school. Throughout the holiday season, your tax-deductible contribution to MEF allows our teachers to innovate, students to explore, and schools to thrive. We are a 100% volunteer-led organization, and your donations are invested directly into our schools. Every dollar makes a difference. Donate today.
