Happening at East Grand schools
East Grand School District Superintendent
• There was a parent orientation night at Middle Park High School for eighth grade parents to learn more about high school, course offerings, registration and more.
• Additionally, on the morning of Feb. 26, all eighth grade students attended an orientation at the high school. They walked up to MPHS with their teachers, got a tour of the building and learned about class options as well as hearing from MPHS student council members about being a high school student.
• Seventh grade students have an opportunity to apply for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA); RYLA is an all expenses paid youth leadership camp sponsored by Rotary International. Every year, EGMS students are accepted into this program; I hear nothing but positive feedback from parents and students about the program, so I’d really encourage your student to apply.
• Registration for AP testing is underway at MPHS. This year MPHS will offer 12 AP exams! Registration forms have been handed out and are due no later than March 26.
• High School students have begun class registration for next fall semester. Over the next few weeks students will be building their schedules.
• Middle Park High School Crew hiked to Broome Hut. We took 11 students and four staff for two nights. Did some great snow school, social-emotional work, and fun bonding time. Some students even spent the night (part of it anyways in a snow cave)! We have great pictures to share on the district webpage.
• Next up the Crew will be working with the Rocky Mountain Wooden Boat School doing a wooden boat restoration. Can’t wait!
• Last weekend the team of Trustin Applehans, Ellie Gagnon, Kenneth Hoffmeister, and Kenneth Simmons competed at the state brain bowl meet in Denver. They qualified by placing sixth in our regional meet last month. They were up against the top 18 teams in the state, which included public, charter, and private schools. They did very well, but had a couple of tough rounds, and placed 15th overall. Congratulations to these students for getting this far and representing East Grand Middle School in the state meet!
