MPS This Week: June 5-9
Our schools are busy places as the end of the academic year approaches but we also remain committed to building relationships and strengthening ties throughout the community. With that in mind, on Thursday our Family and Community Partnership Office is helping coordinate an end-of-the-year Block Party on Spruce Street. Everyone is invited to attend and you can read about it here. In the meantime please scroll down to see photos capturing activity throughout the district. It's nice to see so many smiling faces.

Happy Campers
Members of the Unified Sports Team at Illing (above) were jumping for joy while Robertson first-graders were in the spirit of things at the Lutz. Down below: a Buckley student during Spirit Day and some field day fun -- Keeney kids getting wet and Martin students hamming it up.

We've been busy with other things and didn't add to our gallery last week but hope to share more stories soon. In the meantime, please visit Instagram and/or Facebook to see our archives.

Everybody Pull!

A staff vs. students tug of war left everybody smiling at the Highland Park field day.
Around and About
Those are students at Bowers holding planters built in a project that involved the Youth Service Bureau, MELC and our Family Resource Center while Verplanck scholars enjoyed a trip to the Oak Grove Nature Center.
