Thanksgiving Break always reminds me of how blessed we are in this district. Many positive things are happening, and I am always thankful to be a part of MPISD. Our Veteran’s Day program at P.E. Wallace was another huge success, and the MPHS band earned all 1’s at their district competition in October. The MPHS cross country teams did well at district competition, and we sent both boys and girls to the regional competition this year. Our varsity basketball teams have gotten off to good starts, and we have choir students that are still advancing in their competitions. The Turkey Trots were very successful on each of the elementary campuses, too.
We have three weeks until our students get out for the Christmas Holidays. Christmas Break is from December 20th through January 6th for students. We will have an early release day on December 19th, and we will have a staff development day on January 5th. As winter approaches, please know that we will communicate with you about any inclement weather as it occurs. We communicate with all staff, students, and parents through local radio stations, our district website, television stations, our phone notification system (School Messenger), and email. As always, the safety of our students, staff, and parents is the number one concern in deciding whether or not to have school on a particular day.
Please visit our individual campus websites to see information for a particular school. We hope that you have an outstanding holiday season, and Go Tigers!!!
