Middle School Annual Start-of-School Camping Trip

We are excited to start the year off with our annual middle school beginning-of-the-year camping trip. This year we are planning to go to Big Basin.

We will be holding a Field Trip Orientation for middle school parents and students on Wednesday, August 27, at 6:30 pm (ALL 6th and 9th grade and all new Middle & High School students are requested to attend) to ensure that students are well prepared for the trip. We ask that students bring their gear up to meet with the faculty advisors who will check their gear and help them make any needed adjustments. 

River Rafting Annual High School Trip

HS students are expected return to the MMS campus on Sat, Sep 6 at 4pm. Parents/guardians will receive a Power Announce message on Sat confirming the arrival time.
