Thank you to all the parents and staff that helped make our 8th grade grad party such a success. Students enjoyed music, a slide show, DJ, gaming tables, photo booths and wonderful food. A big thanks to Kim Bailey and Joleen Wilkening for leading the team of volunteers to transform our MUR into an elegant evening for our kids!!
Here is a thank-you letter from Kim and Joleen.
We only have two more weeks of school. Please return all library books and textbooks and make you're your lunch accounts are paid. Yearbooks will be withheld if your student owes materials, lunch money or fines to the school.

Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered behind the scenes to make this event possible.
