Good Morning Mount Greylock Students and Families,
The first quarter is well on its way and we've settled into a familiar groove.
Now that we're in that groove, we suggest students and families consider getting involved. If you're unsure where to start, don't know what's available, or wondering what's needed... please reach out to us.
We are so happy to be back and working with all of our students together! All ensembles are rehearsing every day as we are quickly approaching our Getting Acquainted Concert on October 21st. Please make sure to reserve an audience space so that you can be sure to hear our progress! Click here to access the google form.
While we know things aren't 100% back to normal yet, we are glad to finally be able to offer a year of performances highlighting our students and their hard work! Looking forward to seeing you soon!
-Mrs. Vinette & Mr. O'Connell
The next Mobile Food Bank in North Adams is Friday from 10-11 at the Brien Center (American Legion Drive). All are welcome! There are no minimum eligibility requirements. They only ask how many people are in the household and their age ranges. People are welcome to pick up for folks who are not able to attend. The food bank receives a wide variety of vegetables and grocery items to distribute throughout the community.
This is a message asking you to remind your students who ride the school bus that per federal Department of Transportation regulations masks are required while entering, exiting, and during the duration of travel on all means of "public conveyance," including school buses.
Please know that our number one priority continues to be providing healthy, nutritious, and appetizing meals for your children. We love seeing them every day and appreciate your support and patience as we continue to offer meals at no charge for all students. The good news is that free lunch will continue throughout the school year, so please stick with us while we face yet another challenge. Your participation helps our program stay strong, and we look forward to serving you!
The Guidance department would like to bring an area opportunity to MGRS student's attention. Starting October 12 and running through much of the year, Playwright Mentoring Project meets once a week (three different days to choose from) in two locations (Pittsfield and North Adams).
