Posts from the Principal- 12/6/20
Week 12 of the 20-21 School Year
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.
Hebrews 1:1-2
Greetings MLS Families,

The holidays will soon be upon us. It has been our tradition to take up a collection for the teachers at Christmas time. If you would like to participate in this collection, you can contribute by clicking here.
 
Please complete the Interest in 5 Day In Person Instruction Survey if you haven't already done so. Do not complete the survey more than once per child. You can use the following link to complete: https://forms.gle/wXMQ7Fof3dGptKn26
 
Since many of you are doing your Holiday Shopping, it is a great opportunity for you to increase MLS's AmazonSmile donations. You can make an impact while you shop! Simply shop at smile.amazon.com/ch/20-3757141 and AmazonSmile will donate to Martin Luther Foundation Inc, at no cost to you.
 
Please mark your calendars, Tuesday, December 8th, all grades will be dismissed at 12:33pm. 
 
A reminder to our hybrid students to get their COVID testing done according to the cycle shared earlier this month. The following groups are next:
Dec. 1 - 8: Last Name R - Z
Dec. 9 - 18 Last Name A- D
Jan. 18 - 25 Last Name E - L

A reminder to all 8th and 12th graders - An email regarding Graduation Portraits was sent out on November 30th. Graduation portraits are scheduled to take place on Friday, December 11th from 12pm-3pm and Saturday, December 12th from 10am to 1pm. Pictures will be taken in cap and gown only. It is recommended that boys wear a white collared shirt. Girls can wear whatever top they choose, but keep in mind that if it is a high collared shirt it will be seen. (Example pictures on the flyer.) Please schedule your appointment if you haven't already done so: 


As part of our commitment to love and care for others, we are collecting new unwrapped toys to give to children that might not otherwise receive gifts for Christmas. We are also collecting canned food and non-perishable food items. If you would like to drop off food or a toy, please do so between the hours of 7:30am - 4:00pm. There is a container immediately when you enter the first set of doors of the main entrance that you may leave these items to avoid fully entering the building.


Reminders
  • Although mail in Charleston Wrap orders is no longer an option, you can still purchase online until December 7th.
  • Parents please remember to check your email and blackbaud messages frequently.
  • Students must remain on camera throughout the day, for each and every class. 
  • Students must submit work using their blackbaud account. Students should not email an assignment that a teacher instructed them to submit on blackbaud.
  • Students must sign up for at least one college fair. There are many links posted on the Counselor Corner on Blackbaud.
  • Students must submit the daily health screening sent out by Ms. Boyle each morning.
  • Zoom codes can be found on Blackbaud on each class page. In the event a teacher is absent, an assignment will be posted on Blackbaud under their class page.
