Letter from MC Principal

Hello MC families,

It was great seeing some of you out at Run with the Wolves this past Saturday. RWTW is a fun community event and I love that it’s an opportunity to encourage people to be active. Both MC students and staff represented us well. Mr. Dewey, Mr. Rios, Ms. Scott, and Dr. Woody-Wideman all ran the 5K and Mr. Rios was our fastest teacher finisher at the MC. For students in the 5k, Everett Teusink was the fastest male finisher and Mya Bellinger was the fastest female finisher at the MC. In the mile, Rebecca Reedick was the fastest female finisher and Paxton Sumrall was the fastest male finisher.

Later that morning the last sport that was still in season at ANCS concluded, as the ANCS baseball team lost their playoff game 10-8 in a tough battle with Kindezi. Kindezi jumped out to an early lead and we battled back, but we weren’t able to come out on top. Thank you to all the coaches and parents who supported our student-athletes this year. Additionally, thank you to Ms. Santina for serving as our Athletic Director and for orchestrating a successful athletic program here at the Middle Campus.

Inside the classroom, our 8th graders finished their Milestones testing today so they are done with Milestones for this year! Our 7th graders have one more day tomorrow. Our 7th graders finish up with Math on Thursday and then Milestones will be complete for this year. FYI Spring MAP scores (not Milestones) have been uploaded to ManageBac so you can access those scores now.

Tomorrow our 6th graders will be going on their day trip to Sweetwater Park. On this trip they will be studying history, science, and enjoying nature. They will be back at the building between 5:15 and 5:30pm tomorrow. As the buses get close to the building we will reach out to parents to let you know exactly when to pick up your students.

Next week our 6th and 7th graders will be conducting their Portfolio Exhibitions throughout the week. We’re looking forward to seeing the product of all the work that they have put in over the last few weeks. In addition to Exhibitions, of course our 8th graders are looking forward to their Savannah trip next week. The students will be visiting various museums and historical sites in addition to having some time to explore parts of Savannah (with limits and supervision of course). Eighth graders should be in attendance at school on Monday, then on Tuesday we will meet at 6:30 am at the school in preparation for departure.

Our final week of school (May 22nd – 26th) includes an Athletics Celebration (students only) after school from 3:15-5pm on Monday, the Eighth Grade Celebration on Wednesday, Extended Advisory on Thursday, and Field Day and the last day of school (noon dismissal) on that Friday. (Note: Extended Advisory day includes short classes in the beginning of the day, and then each Advisory will spend time hanging out and celebrating each other the rest of the day. Advisors will be reaching out to you soon about their plans.) We’re getting close to the end of the year!

Enjoy the rest of your week and as always if you have any questions, feel free to reach out.
