The prom project is back at MSS just in time for the spring formal on Friday, May 27. The formal takes place from 7 to 10 pm in the cafeteria. Students can stop by room D5 to find the perfect dress or suit for the formal.

Just a few reminders for graduating students. Graduation pictures begin today, Wednesday, May 25 and run until Friday, May 27. Don’t forget about your appointment! Also, graduation is scheduled for Tuesday, June 28 at MSS at 7 pm. Mark the date and time on your calendar!

We are down to the final dozen in spymaster. Congratulations to the remaining few, I imagine it will only be a matter of time before we have our final two or three standing. Good luck spies!

Joke of the week: The track and field team complained that the hurdles were too short.

But I’m not worried, they’ll get over it.

Upcoming events include tennis, track and field and Spymaster.

Until the next time, “Dream and Believe. Learn and Achieve!”
