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.

History Department Comes Together for Educational Retreat

The history department gathered last week to discuss alignment across grade levels and divisions. The department’s goal is to ensure that it prepares students to be global citizens who can “meet the challenges of this world with confidence and embrace all its people with compassion”. Teachers discussed skill development across years, how to create connections between courses, and how courses might be adjusted to ensure students graduate from MICDS prepared to “lead lives of purpose and service”.
