• Here are some highlights of student feedback after Junior River Trip:
“I absolutely loved this week; it changed me in so many ways. I have never felt so in the moment and at one with the world. I gained so much more love for nature and the people around me. I would 100,000 trillion percent recommend this to all juniors. I appreciated the adults who took us. They amaze and inspire me. I love all JRT2 2018 guides. The most valuable thing was all the inspiration from my peers and the guides. I am so blessed to have this experience,” Riley Sedlar.
“JRT was the best week I have had this year! The experience is once-in-a-lifetime and I couldn’t have had more laughs, smiles, and new friendships. Every junior should take advantage of JRT, and I’m more than happy to have gone. I appreciate everyone who made the trip possible,” Tristan Schwab.
• Granby fourth and fifth grade students enjoyed separate campouts this week. Thank goodness for some nice weather.
• MPHS held their athletic awards this past Tuesday night where our student-athletes were recognized for all of the hard work they put in this year.
• MPHS held their academic awards night this past Wednesday. This event is one of my favorite events as students are honored for years of hard work and scholarships are awarded in huge amounts.
• EGMS and MPHS band concert was held last night. It is impressive to see the growing number of students participating and excelling in band.
• EGMS held an Education Showcase on Wednesday where students were able to display and talk about projects that they have completed this year as part of our Project Based Learning initiative. The students have shown great engagement and excitement about what they have learned.
• Starting a new tradition, the graduating class of 2018 followed up practice on Thursday by touring the elementary schools and the middle school. It brought many memories for the seniors and allowed our younger students to honor this class.
• Don’t forget, graduation is Saturday, June 2 at 10 a.m. Arrive early for good seating.
