MakerSpace

On Thursdays in January, the MakerSpace will be open during  Mav Blocks for our fifth Maker Challenge of the school year! This month’s challenge is based on the Mystery Architecture Challenge from Science Olympiad. The great thing about these types of challenges is that they depend on the materials provided. Every Mystery Architecture challenge is completely different even if the goal is the same because the materials provided are different. Passes are limited to 16 per session. Tuesdays will still be ‘open exploration’ days in the MakerSpace. For more information, visit Mrs. Harpin’s blog.

Maverick Tree

Many families find themselves needing assistance during the holiday season.  While there are many community agencies available to provide assistance, at McClure Middle School we can also help.  The families we help are those of McClure students.  This is a great opportunity to share the experience of giving with our students.  If you have an organization, church, work group or just want to do an item yourself we would love to ensure that each child a special holiday. Please sign up and send in what you can or if you don’t like to shop, our elves can do it for you with a monetary or gift card donation sent in addressed to Maverick Tree.  Gifts sent in should be unwrapped and brought into the front office.

McClure Spelling Bee

The annual McClure Spelling Bee will be held on Friday, January 12th at 9:45.  All interested students should sign up no later than December 30th.  Your family is welcome to attend the bee and should check in to the front office before joining us in the theater.  Please be mindful of the necessity for a silent environment during the bee.  This may not be the place for younger siblings who cannot sit quietly for long periods of time.

*This year’s bee will include one vocabulary round.  This is something that was added to the Scripps National Spelling Bee last year and we have been asked to expose you to this new format.  This round will be low stress and will not cause elimination. It is just to let you see how the new format will work.

**Links to this year’s school bee study materials can be found below and on Mrs. Burchette’s Blog (7th Grade Teacher).

Maverick Tree.

Many families find themselves needing assistance during the holiday season.  While there are many community agencies available to provide assistance, at McClure Middle School we can also help.  The families we help are those of McClure students.  This is a great opportunity to share the experience of giving with our students.  This year along with the gift items on the list we want to make sure each child has new socks, underwear, and toothbrushes, body wash and other necessities.  If you have an organization, church, work group or just want to do an item yourself we would love to ensure that each child on the list receives an item to fill this special stocking. Right now we have 17 children so if you would like to supply a necessity item please have them in quantities of 17.

Please sign up and send in what you can or if you don’t like to shop our elves can do it for you with a monetary or gift card donation sent in addressed to Maverick Tree.  Gifts sent in should be unwrapped and brought into the front office.

Thanksgiving Food Baskets

It is the time of year to reflect on our blessings and open our hearts to giving.  The holiday season always begins with our Annual Thanksgiving Basket Drive. In recent times an average of 15% of American households do not have dependable or consistent access to food and healthy living. It is hard to imagine that some of our own McClure families could be included in this statistic but, they are.  This year we hope to put together Thanksgiving Baskets for 20 of our McClure families.  Our baskets are special because each one is identical and they consist of not just the Thanksgiving meal necessities but enough food that the students will not go without during their week away.
