Hello Middle School Parents,

Another full week in the middle school has come to an end. Today, nearly half of the middle schoolers participated in the AMC 8 test, a national math contest that is given to students in 8th grade and under. Students will get their results in a few weeks. The contest is sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America. There is a similar competition for high schoolers that ultimately leads to the International Math Olympiad. This is the second year MIS has participated in the competition.

Also this week, the boys basketball team had two games with the 8th grade team remaining undefeated and the 6th and 7th grade team playing hard and coming close despite their overall record of 1 win and 4 losses.

Play rehearsals are in full swing. Be sure to save the date of December 18th (performances at 4 pm and 6 pm).

Looking ahead to May, the 7th grade trip dates have been confirmed. The group will go to Paradise Valley from May 18-May 22.

Have a great weekend,

Linda
