Dear Mullica Students and Families,
Welcome to the 2021-22 school year. I hope that you have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to the new school year. While we are not quite back to business as usual, I am looking forward to seeing many of our favorite activities return to our middle school. Among these are after-school clubs, interscholastic sports and our ACES program will run both before and after school. During the school day, students will once again change classes, use lockers, enjoy lunch in the cafeteria, and participate in all special area classes. Finally, I am excited about the return of our Exploratory program for all students in grades five through eight. This class will allow students to explore content that is not part of our usual curriculum. Teachers will oversee classes in topics that are outside of their usual content area or an extension of their content. We have teachers skilled in creative writing, robotics, mindfulness, fitness, etc. Students will be able to choose the class in which they would like to participate on a trimester basis.
We are all very excited to have all of our learners back in-person this school year and look forward to making the 2021-22 school year the best it can be.
