Newsletter to MCMS Parents
Dear Voyager Parents:
I wanted to let you know when and where you can find me during conference times next week. Since I am serving LT and MC this year, I am going to spend one evening and part of Thursday (day) in each building. If you would like to see or talk to me, but I am not available when you are, please send me an email and we will try to find another time to talk.

First Quarter Seminar—Friday, October 3rd at LTMS
The first quarter seminar, called “Whodunnit?” will be held on Friday, October 3rd , at LTMS. The Special Education department will cover the cost of bussing the Mill Creek Voyagers to LT for the day. They will be picked up at 8:10 am and be returned by 2:40 in time to catch the students’ busses or rides home. Students will work in grade level groups with LT students to solve a crime. They will be using analysis skills and scientific inquiry to sort through a variety of types of crime evidence (fingerprints, DNA analysis, lab reports, transcripts of witness interviews, etc.) By the end of the day, the groups will have to write a scenario of what they believe occurred, who their major suspect is and why. They will discuss their findings with other grade level groups. We will have several brain breaks with games and other short activities.
- Lunch: Students may either choose to bring their lunch or to buy it at LTMS. They only need their code.
8th grade Voyagers
7th grade Voyagers
6th grade Voyagers
Sixth grade Voyagers have spent the first few weeks finding out about themselves—their strengths and weaknesses as gifted learners, what type of learner they are, what are their strongest “intelligences” are, and what type of personality they have. The Voyagers have enjoyed seeing how they compare to each other as well. Now they are writing IEP goals and planning projects or activities related to those IEP skills that they are working on right now.
