THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW: 

 

The View from the LMC: Today is NATIONAL HANDWRITING DAY. National Handwriting Day was started to re-introduce one’s self to a pen or pencil and a piece of paper.  According to the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association, it is a chance for all to re-explore the purity and power of handwriting. Can you write your name in cursive? That simple pen to paper act is known as an official signature. January 23rd was chosen as this is the birthday of John Hancock.  Born in 1737, John Hancock was the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence.

 

LITTLE MERMAID JR. - *ENTERTAINMENT REVIEW: The Little Mermaid Jr. gave their final spectacular show last night to a packed house. Literally. It was a chairs in the aisle packed house. What a great weekend for theater in Morton! Miss Henrichs was heard giving a shout out to the cast and the community with this thought: “ICYMI (in case you missed it) the MJHS Musical was a spectacular show! Congrats to all the cast for a show well done! Thanks to all the students for coming out and showing your support! It made the weekend a bubblin' good time!” Mrs. Everett and Mr. Beutel echo their thanks for the great community support. What a great place to be… under the sea! 

 

FORGOTTEN ITEMS: IF YOU FORGOT ANYTHING...CHECK THE OFFICE SHELF. Instruments, PE CLOTHES, folders, and so much more. Remember - it is your responsibility to come look.  If your parent brings you a forgotten item, they can email you at [email protected]  Then you come check the shelf.
