    Don't forget to re-register for the Spring Session!  Many participants register by the quarter so it's easy to forget.  So many games left to play before the end of the year…  Use this link or go to the MV Community Ed Website.



    Please bring in your old Newspapers to help out our Science Department.  The 6th graders will be "Saving the Penguins" in early May.

    Drop off any old newspapers in the front office of Chippewa.  We appreciate the help.
