Picnic and Play for Grandparent's Day!

We are looking forward to our 1st Picnic and Play for Grandparent's Day! If your child's grandparent is planning to attend, please have him/her return the registration form that was sent home last week.


Because of enrollment numbers, Grandparents' Day will be held for specific grade levels on Thursday and Friday. We are unable to allow siblings to recess / lunch together. All learners will follow their grade level's schedule. Thank you for understanding!

News to Know

Genius Hour

Will you share your "genius" with us? This year, we will have 4 Genius Hour sessions and would LOVE to have you join us! Genius Hour is held on Friday mornings from 7:45 - 8:55 am (see dates below). Genius Hour runs in 3 week sessions. The 4th week, we host a gallery walk for students to see what others have been doing in their clubs.


Examples of some clubs we have had in the past are: craft, cooking, wood-working, sewing, cake decorating, gardening, etc. You can view a more comprehensive list here. If you would like to run a club with support from a staff member or assist a staff member with a club, please let me know which session(s) you are available and what you would like to do. Please email me at shannon_west@misd.gs, and we will get you set up.


We will provide the supplies or can reimburse you for supplies purchased with a turned-in receipt.
