We are making great progress on our project for a new home for MIS, “Mi casa es tu casa.” We have been working with the architects since last fall to develop the schematic design for the building. The next step is to develop the construction documents. The design team is on track to break ground this summer.
Thank you to those of you who joined the MIS Board of Trustees at the Winter Parent Meeting last Wednesday. The gym was abuzz with excitement and wonder about our new drawings and the approaching reality of a new school!
At the meeting, the Board and a few supporters of the capital campaign, MIS parents Kay Grissom-Kiely and Daniel Kiely and MIS grandparent and Trustee, Ray Aten, issued a call to action to the MIS Parent community:
- Be sure to re-enroll your kids for next year – the deadline to return your re-enrollment paperwork is Wednesday, January 25.
- Support our Annual Fund to ensure our continued quality of education for your child.
- Invest in our Capital Campaign to help us move into our new building in August 2018.
In case you were unable to attend the Winter Parent Meeting last Wednesday, we are seeking your thoughts and comments on the plans as an important step in the schematic design phase. You can see the latest drawings displayed in the hallway at school with a comment box in front – or by clicking here. Email Julie, firstname.lastname@example.org, with your comments or questions.
To quote Daniel Kiely, we hope each and every MIS family will “dig deep and invest as much as you can in the future of MIS. It is not a ‘cost;’ it is an investment in our children’s future, as well the future of our community.”
