MMC Last Week Notes and Highlights
June 3, 2013
This year has been an absolute blast! I can’t believe we are in the last few days of the school year. We are ending with a big bang…the premiere of our student made film, “The Horror House”. It’s a funny movie with a scary name. The students studied how the film “The Lion King” was made using brainstorming sessions, story boarding, script writing, and countless production meetings. The final product is an amazing 22-minute silent film. Yes, it is a silent film in the early 20th century style. This made the project more challenging as the students had to write out all of the stage directions for the actors and placards to explain the plot to the audience. I think you’ll enjoy it. Therefore, we cordially invite you to join us this Thursday at 9:00 a.m. for the school awards ceremony and a school-wide viewing of our film.
Also on Thursday, we will have a “cast party” as our end of the year celebration. Please contribute either a bag of chips, pretzels, or a salty snack. Or if you wish, you may send in a sweet treat. Of course fruit and healthy snacks are always welcome, too. I’ll provide the drinks. Stick around and join us for the celebration if you can.
Don’t forget tomorrow is Water Day! Please send in a change of clothes for your child. The students will have a picnic lunch afterwards and an afternoon movie. Finally, they will watch the “fifth grade versus staff” kickball game. Another suggestion would be to send in a plastic bag to put your child’s wet clothes in so that the backpack doesn’t get wet.
If I don’t get the chance to see you before the summer vacation, I want to thank you for your support this year! It was a privilege to serve this community and a tremendous blessing to teach your children. I wish you the best of summer vacations!
With Highest Respect,
Randy L. Morgan
