Good morning!  I just wanted to pass along a few important announcements:
  • Please review the information sent out last week about winter retreat.  Please remember to let me know by Thursday at the latest if you are opting your child out of the lock-in.  Please indicate whether they will be leaving at 8:30 or midnight.  It is vitally important for the security of our students that we know ahead of time who is being released and at what time.  Please note that students leaving Friday night are required to return at 9:15am on Saturday. 
  • Fittings for concert uniforms for freshmen will take place on Tuesday and Wednesdayevening (Jan. 23 and 24) from 6:00pm-7:30pm.  Students may come at any point during those time frames on either night. 
  • You are formally invited to a Community Input Session regarding our K-12 Performing Arts facilities as we plan ahead for phase three of our district’s three-phase funding plan.  With 5.8 mils expiring in 2019, we have a once-in-a-generation chance to modernize our aging buildings 
    ​and performing arts facilities ​without raising taxes.  Please consider coming to the community forum to learn about the current state of our facilities and to see what might be done to maintain and modernize our facilities.  Community members will be​ meeting​ on Tuesday, January 23rd at 7:00 pm in the Middle School Auditorium.  This is a time for our school board and administration to hear from you as we create a vision for our performing arts facilities for the future. Come hear how you can help to update and transform our facilities to support the students at Mona Shores.
