** Be sure to check the dates at the bottom for important information regarding the beginning of school next year.

1. Last MIS News of the Year: The last student day will be Thursday, May 30th; however, this will be our final edition of the MIS News for the 2018-19 school year. We appreciate all of your support and efforts in making this a great year. We wish our 6th graders nothing but the best as they move on to the junior high. We look forward to seeing our 4th/5th graders back on August 1st. Have a great and safe summer!!!

2. Variety Show: There are many talented students at MIS, and it is always great to see them shine in their element. All of the performers did an outstanding job today.

3. Library News: Library books were due last week, but we still have a few books out. If your child still has a book out, you have received information regarding the replacement cost of the book. Please check around the house should your child still have a book out to avoid the replacement cost.

4. Summer Meals Program Information:

5. Last Day of School/Awards Day: Please note the time changes listed below to lunch times. We will be recognizing Honor Roll (All A, A-B) as well as perfect attendance. We would encourage you to monitor Powerschool to see if your child is eligible for one of these awards as you will not be contacted. Please know that we define perfect as just that, "without blemish." If a student has missed a day, part of a day or left early/arrived late, they are not eligible for this award.

Teachers will also be recognizing academic award winners in content areas. If your child will be receiving a classroom award, parents will be contacted by the classroom teacher

This will occur on May 30th:
