Hello MPS Family,

It was a big day today in MPS! First of all, Punxsutawney Phil – the legendary weatherman of the groundhog world – did NOT see his shadow this morning so the subsequent report is: Spring will come early this year!! Judging from the past week of gray skies, we are all looking forward to seeing some sunshine – SOON! 

The other big news is that students celebrated the 100th Day of School today. Lots of kiddos (especially elementary) were encouraged to come to school dressed as if they were 100 years old.  SO cute – and fun.  Lots of programs on tap – many requiring pre-registration – so please take a look at the items below.
