What's Happening at the Magnet?

Join us for our monthly MPA meeting this Monday, January 22nd with a special guest speaker!

Monday 1/22 we will be holding our monthly MPA meeting from 7-8 and invite all interested parents to attend. We have a great guest speaker lined up: Ellen Perlmutter, Cornell University's Assistant Director for Admissions, will be sharing some valuable information on what top colleges are looking for in their applicants. I know that some of our kids will have Ivy League aspirations, and it's never too early to get the lay of the land. 

We are really excited about this one, so have your questions ready to go! 

Do you know someone with a scientific, medical or engineering background/career who would be willing to act as an expert judge for us?

We need more expert judges for the Magnet Science Fair on Friday, February 2nd! This is an amazing experience for our kids to get a chance to discuss their science projects with scientists and engineers.  But we need more judges to make it a quality experience. If you know someone who can help us on Friday February 2nd from 10:30am to 3pm please have them email ASAP. 

Special thanks to parents for donating and helping with last night's 8th Grade Winter Formal!

The event was a success and the kids had a fantastic time, thank you so much for your support! You truly helped make it a wonderful evening!
