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.

The eclipse at its peak

Students Have a Totally Awesome Eclipse Experience

On Monday our MICDS students had a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see the solar eclipse in totality. Teachers orbited their students throughout the morning, using the eclipse as a learning opportunity and working the event into lessons ranging from science to art. Around 12:50 p.m., students put on a pair of ISO certified solar glasses and looked on in starry-eyed wonder as the moon eclipsed the sun. As totality occurred, student observers were over the moon witnessing this rare spectacle. It was truly a day of cosmic proportions that students aren’t soon to forget.
