FROM MR. ORTMAN and MR. MURTHA
Learning will always be #1 here at Mill Creek, but the social aspect of school is also hugely important to the development of our students and as way to connect Mill Creek with our Greater Community. In this vein, we have a few events coming up, especially for our 6th Grade students. Among them are the Solo Circus (open to all families), which is next Friday evening (February 10). Then there are a pair of 6th Grade events - The Color Games on the evening of Firday, February 24, and Home and School's 6th Grade SkyZone event on Sunday, March 19. Please consider joing for one or all of these wonderful events, and many thanks to Mill Creek Home and School for their hard work in organizing these school-Community events!
Have a great weekend!
John C. Murtha
