Announcements for Parents – #Robinmicklems:
As a head’s up for planning purposes, this coming Thursday, November 3rd after 2:45pm, frozen food items from the fall PTSO fundraiser will be delivered to Mickle for student/family pick up from our cafeteria. Often, students with items have a hard time getting those products delivered home without some transportation assistance. Please begin to discuss a plan with your student for that Thursday, Nov 3 pick up date.
IB Academy Day at Lincoln High. If you or your student are interested in information regarding the International Baccalaureate (IB) program please have your student stop in the main office to pick up a letter with information on the Academy Day at Lincoln High.
The Wellness Committee and the Technology Committee would like to thank all the visitors and volunteers who helped make our Wellness Fair and fundraiser a success. We couldn’t do it without all of you!
In planning for Halloween on Oct 31, we have had many students and families asking about parties or costumed opportunities during school. While Halloween can be an exciting calendar day in the lives of middle school students, at Mickle will be treating that Monday as a regular school day. Please have your student come dressed for learning and save costumes for other evening activities outside of school. We appreciate your support on this unique day.
