Quick Updates: Food Drive, School Musical and More...
Winter has officially started, and with it comes several new things happening at MVM. First, the canned food drive has been a success, with a total of 1188 cans. Fifth grade brought 333 cans, sixth grade brought 79 cans, seventh grade brought 423 cans, and eighth grade brought 353 cans. Sixth grade brought the average number of cans per grade from 370 down by 73 cans, to 297. Sixth graders, we believe in you! You can do better next year, if you bring in as many cans as you can, and encourage others to do the same.
Soon, the winner of the canned food drive will be revealed, but first, here are some honorable mentions: Ramsay with 65 cans, Erickson with 66 cans, Arnold with 87 cans, and Eline with 94 cans. In third place, we have Ms. Bell with 122 cans. In second place is Heath with 197 cans. And in first place is Elliott with 203 cans, meaning they will win a pizza party! Good job to everyone who participated, and thank you for helping to make someone’s winter a little bit brighter.
Speaking of winter, it is getting frosty out! Right now, there is snow covering the ground and heavy clouds in the air. Everyone, be careful not to slip on the icy roads and streets. Don’t forget to layer up with a coat, gloves/mittens, a hat, and boots to navigate the deep snow.
The school musical, James and the Giant Peach, held auditions last Wednesday and Friday, and will be holding callbacks this coming Wednesday. Rehearsals will start in January, after the break. There is a half day on Friday. Because of the half day and because winter break starts after that, attendance is expected to be minimal. However, try to come to school if you can, because there are some great activities planned. Have a happy holidays!
