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.

Parent Network Event – Discussion of The Blessing of a B-

All Middle School and Upper School parents are invited to a “book club” presentation on Thursday, April 14, at 8:00 a.m. in the Middle School Alumnae Room. Dr. Jen Gafford will facilitate a discussion of the book, The Blessing of a B-, by Wendy Mogel, Ph. D. We will discuss how Dr. Mogel navigates the often rough journey of the teenage years, why influence is more effective than control, when to step in and when to take a step back, and all of the hidden blessings of raising a teenager. Copies of the book are available in the MICDS Bookstore. Even if you haven’t read the book, we hope you’ll join us for an informative discussion. If you have any questions. please contact, Parent Network representatives Tracey Singer,, or Stephanie Gallagher,
