M3S Garden Commemorative Tile Project
As the 8th grade students begin drafting their graduation ceremony speeches, they will also work on decorating tiles that will be glazed, fired and added to pillars being installed in the M3S sitting area. This will serve as a lasting impression after they have moved on to high school. The school will cover the cost of this project and continue this tradition as a commemorative activity that will be a creative and beautiful memory of our graduating eighth graders. Thank you to Irma, Trish, Barbara, and Ms. Tina for their insight and generosity of time and funding.
5/9 M3S Bake Sale
Students signed up today to bring delicious treats for our Garden themed bake sale Thursday (5/9). Treats don’t have to actually have a garden theme, but the proceeds will go to support the wonderful new Middle School Garden/Hangout. All yummy treats will be $1.00 each.
A separate email will be sent to those students and parents signed up for the bake sale.
5/15 MMS Coffee & Cocoa Clutch
As the school year winds down, M3S is setting up a Coffee and Cocoa Clutch with coffee, cocoa and an assortment of morning treats. We’re hoping that Parents will hang out in the M3S sitting area, to catch up, chat about summer plans and enjoy the new sitting area (the class is calling it The Kingdom).
A separate email will be sent to those students and parents signed up for the Coffee Clutch

The students are not allowed to travel about the resort without a chaperone going with them. Breakfast will be provided.
On Friday, we will arrive at Aquatica around 9:00 am. Since Aquatica is self-contained and has plenty of lifeguards, I allow the students to travel about without chaperone escort BUT most of the time we go from ride to ride in a group – more fun that way! We will be at the Aquatica until 2:00 pm. Students will have lunch vouchers, which includes unlimited food and drink throughout the day. We should be back at school around 4:30 pm.
