Greetings MLS Families,
Students will return to the building starting on Monday, February 8th with Cohorts A & C in school and Cohorts B and D at home. We will begin Quarter 3's Choice of Instruction tomorrow, Feb. 8th. Each parent/student was granted their choice, meaning if you selected the 5 day in person option, your child can begin to attend MLS everyday starting Feb. 8th. In order to accomodate our 8th graders that chose 5 day instruction, we moved our 8th grade classroom and Ms. Zambelli to the 2nd floor Library. Ms. Martin is now in Room 102.
Attention Juniors & parents of Juniors - Mrs. Lecakes sent out an email regarding two opportunities for you to take the standardized tests colleges may use in your application process. We will offer the SAT during the school day on Wednesday, March 24th. We will offer the ACT during the school day on Tuesday, April 20th. Please note: this is different from what was reported earlier this year!!! We have opted to close our public administration of our SAT in order to ensure your safety as you take this exam. We have also changed our ACT date in order to register for an on-lilne administration. The SAT is $52 and the ACT is $55. Payment for these exams will be due by February 11th.
Attention all high school students - Pace University is hosting a Hackathon! The Hackathon is a 3 day event for high school students to create games or mobile apps related to the Billion Oyster Project. The event will take place February 24th, 26th, 27th and 28th.
