No Late Start for MS and US - Wednesday, February 1

In view of the lost instructional day Monday, the Middle and Upper Schools will run block schedules through the end of the week (C, D, E, and F rotations). This calendar change means that, except in the Lower School, we will NOT run a late-start Wednesday schedule on February 1. Lower School will still have a late start. Middle and Upper School classes will begin promptly at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, February 1.

Watch the 2021 Blue Whale Cafe

Premiering at 7:30 p.m. on February 19

Blue Whale Cafe is a cherished MICDS tradition that allows students and faculty to showcase their talents and come together to celebrate the arts in our community. This year, Blue Whale will take on a virtual format; audience members will watch from home while performers take the stage to perform original, classic, and modern pieces demonstrating their instrumental and vocal talents.

“Honestly, I think this will be the best Blue Whale because everyone is dedicated to making this an amazing show to alleviate the fears and frustrations of COVID-19 for our performers, production crew, and audience.” – Kendal Windom ’21, Master of Ceremonies

Instead of traditional ticket sales for one charity, viewers will have the opportunity to donate to one or multiple causes of their choice during “commercial breaks” throughout the show.
