What a fantastic week the 7th graders had in Paradise Valley!  Over and over again, our students wowed us with their willingness to reach outside their comfort zone, step into leadership positions, and support their classmates who were doing the same.  Be sure to check the MIS Facebook page for lots of photos and videos!

The MYP Community Project gives our 8th graders the opportunity to develop awareness of the needs in a particular community and address those needs through service learning.  Please join us next week as the 8th graders present their year-long work on their Community Projects.  Presentations will be given in the Middle School classrooms on Thursday, May 30th at 2:15 – 3:25.
