School Visioning: 2019-2020
Friday, February 22, 2019 3:40 PM

The Anwatin school leadership is looking for your input as we plan for 2019-2020.  Students will take home a conversation guide Tuesday, February 26th.  We invite you to speak with your student about what you love about Anwatin and what you need for a successful middle school experience.  An online version of the discussion guide is available for download here.  Responses will be collected and turned into school administration on Friday, March 1.

Summer School Announcement
Friday, February 22, 2019 12:45 PM

MPS has just released details for summer school registration.  View the full details here.

Dear Parent or Guardian:

We are gearing up for summer session!

This year we are asking parents and guardians to complete a fillable PDF application to register their child for summer school. Why is it preferred that you complete a fillable PDF? Because the data is easily exported to a master spreadsheet. This spreadsheet is what will contain pertinent information for transportation, principals, nurses, etc and helps us to manage the student's data more effectively.

If you do not have a computer, please see the front office at your child's school for a paper copy to complete. This paper copy is to be returned to the front office.
