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.

3rd Grader Plays Ukulele, Recorder and Dances to Support St. Louis Food Bank

Katherine S. ’29 and her friend have been playing music and performing dances for their neighbors to raise money for the St. Louis Area Food Bank! She plays her ukulele and recorder while her neighbor plays her ukulele, too. They also choreographed and performed several dances. With their creative efforts and a few days outside, they were able to raise $350 and obtained a match to make a total donation of $700 for the food bank!

Fabulous job, Katherine!
