Friday Family Newsletter - December 3, 2021

December 3, 2021

Dear MHS Families, 

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. Our staff was so inspired by our students’ Presentations of Learning. It was great to reflect on their growth over the break and return to school refreshed.

Next week, we continue our Microplastics Unit. If you would like to learn more about what the students are working on, check out our Humanities Project Outline and STEM - Project Unit Outline

In the next two weeks, crews will be alternating in the field. Students will be going to Des Moines Creek to collect water samples. With this in mind, students will be wearing rain gear and rain boots. If your child needs rain boots, please fill out this Google Form as soon as possible. We will provide loaner boots for any student who fills out the form.

Two more weeks before we head into Winter Break and we wanted to remind you that December 17th is the last day of school before the break. Attendance is still required and follows Highline Public School attendance policy. If your family has travel plans, please let the office know in advance.
