Hi Mac Families!
I hope this finds you well. It’s a month into this new spring semester, and what a month it has been! In spite of all the challenges we face with COVID-19, we have some exciting things happening as well! We broke ground on our outdoor stage, we administered the PSAT both indoors and outdoors, we honored our Teacher of the Year, we planned our Mac Expo Knight, and more!
Mac Backs Black History Month
This month, we celebrate Black History Month! Mac Backs Black History, and Mr. Featherstone, along with our Students of Color Alliance, have organized and planned a series of really cool speakers and events for students to enjoy and learn from, even virtually!
Please see the Black History Month agenda for some of the special activities and events that will occur throughout the month of February.
It’s National School Counseling Week!
