MGM Serves first Responders
As a component of these lessons and with the help of some first responders, we have compiled a list of useful supplies for the first responders in our community. This will be one of our service projects for this year to give back to the people that are so helpful during a time of crisis.
Click the supply list to see the suggested items. Please note that your contribution is not limited to the items on this list. This list is simply suggestions that will help first responders complete their jobs to the best of their ability. If you and your student can contribute have your student bring the items in to his/her CREW leader. We will be in CREW everyday the rest of this week as well as next week. These items will be distributed to 12 different local first responder groups in our community including law enforcement, EMTs/paramedics, and fire fighters.
Donations are being collected until October 1, 2018. Thank you.
8th Grade Trip - New York and Philadelphia
I wanted to reach out one last time to invite you and your child on our Philadelphia and New York City 2019 tour. Some parents had asked for a reminder of the final deadline, so I’m sending this as a courtesy.
Our final deadline to sign up at this price will be October 1st, 2018. Prices increase after this date so we’re officially closing our enrollment window on the 30th. I expect all spots on tour to be filled by the deadline.
I would love for you to join us on this unforgettable experience! Visit our tour website below to enroll on the trip: www.efexploreamerica.com/2108301ZZ or call EF Explore America at 1-888-333-9756.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
