FALL NEWSLETTER

Intercession

Our Fall Break begins October 6th and ends October 17th.  School resumes on Monday, October 20th.  During the first week of intercession, we provide remediation to our students in need.  This is usually 10% of our students, grades K-12.  Remediation runs from October 6th through the 10th, from 8 am until 12 noon.  This school year, Maconaquah Middle School is adding enrichment classes.  Those five classes are entitled:

·         Ag Genetics

·         3D Printing

·         Underwater Robotics

·         Hands-on History

·         Making Music with Friends.

Students were able to choose and enroll in classes which were of interest. There are currently 52 students enrolled.
