2017 is fantastic at MP. This month we are working on perseverance, and it is a great idea to support at home. ‘When it’s hard, persist and try again.’ The semester ends January 27 and report cards will be sent home on February 10. Please go to the district website and take a few minutes to learn about the Feb 14 district bond for new schools. Your students are amazing and we hope to see you soon. Mr. T
