School Closed - Monday, January 30, 2023

Inclement weather conditions have created hazardous conditions on local roads and highways. In the interest of the safety of our families and employees, MICDS will be closed today, January 30. No classes will be held, all on-campus activities will be canceled, and parking lots will be closed. In view of the lost instructional day today, 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. this Wednesday.

Highlights from 2018 May Day

Seniors, Juniors, 8th and 4th graders performed beautiful dances on Lilly’s Field in the annual May Day celebration on May 5. Fourth graders performed to “Divertimento No. 11 in D Major, k.251” by W.A. Mozart, and 8th graders danced to Takako Nishizaki’s “Lift Your Veil.” The Junior girls presented the Daisy Chain accompanied by “Carillon from L’Arlesienne Suite No. 1” by Georges Bizet. Seniors wove the May Pole to the music of Fantasia on “Greensleeves.” This year, the Class of 2018 chose Kayla Work as its May Queen. In keeping with the MICDS Mission, the girls requested that gifts be made in their honor to a charitable organization, and this year, they chose St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. And of course, even Ellie got into the May Day spirit!
