News:

  1.  Student Competitions: 

It has been a great week for our students in their extra-curricular endeavors.  Last Saturday, our Robotics team participated in their first ever competition.  During this event, the team was named the “Judge’s Pick” for their sportsmanship and hard work.  Congratulations to them and their sponsors, Mrs. Smith and Mr. Cooper.

Last evening, our spell bowl teams represented MIS unbelievably well.  The 4th grade team placed 1st in the local competition which placed them #9 in the state out of 78 teams.  Our 5th/6th grade team tied for first at the local competition, but were beaten out via the tie breaker.  This was good enough to place them #17 out of 113 teams in their division in the statewide rankings.  This is quite an accomplishment for both of these teams.  Thanks to them and Mrs. Tilley for all of the hard work during practice.

  1. MISNews:

With next week being a short week, there will not be a weekly MIS News mailing on Friday.  We hope everyone has a great and safe holiday break!

We were excited to see over 20% of our student body and their families come through the doors on Wednesday evening.  We hope you enjoyed your time and found it educational and fun all at the same time.  We had many of you enjoy pizza from Papa John’s, and we hope we can continue to grow this tradition.

If you would like to request a copy of the United Christmas Service application or need additional information, please contact Mr. Stroud at 326-3121.
