Principal Note

1st Trimester Report Cards

Student report cards for the first trimester are available on Home Access Center next Wednesday morning at 8:00 am. Report cards serve as a communication tool that students and parents can use to identify strengths and areas for goal setting as we grow throughout the year.

Veteran’s Day

Throughout the week students have been engaging in activities that help build knowledge and awareness around Veteran’s Day. Yesterday, students had the opportunity to hear, virtually, from Army veteran Brian Olson, who is a Munhall parent. Mr. Olson shared how many of the life lessons he learned serving our country run parallel to the values we have at Munhall: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be a Problem-Solver.

On behalf of the Munhall staff and students, I’d like to express my gratitude for any immediate and extended members of the Munhall family who have served in the armed forces.

Early Release Day—December 1st

Our next Early Release Day is Wednesday, December 1st. This date seems like it’s far off, but it is the Wednesday we return from Thanksgiving Break. Dismissal on Early Release Days is 2:10 pm.
