Off-Campus Access to Wall Street Journal

Although several students and faculty have expressed appreciation for our school’s current access to wsj.com, some find the second access step confusing. In this step, it appears that you need to verify the corresponding email address, but that is not necessary; instead, you may click “Continue to WSJ” and go directly to the site.

This quick video shows how to log in to wsj.com. Our school password is on the password list available in the Dragons Research group in Schoology.

Note: Normally, The Wall Street Journal does not provide access to wsj.com for school subscribers except when users are on campus (or logging in with a method that makes it look like they are). Due to the pandemic, they’re making a temporary exception. Enjoy our off-campus access while you can!

Annual Auction Goes Virtual

On Saturday, April 24, the 2021 Night of the Dragon is going virtual! This year's event brings the great silent and live auction items and entertainment we've come to love, viewing-party style. Friends and families can gather as they wish to enjoy an evening of fun and to view a short program and live-auction livestream. We will also offer a Buy-a-Spot option for folks who'd like to attend a gathering at the home of someone who has offered to host, taking into account the relevant COVID regulations at the time, of course. Additionally, the MLWGS Foundation is working to support local restaurants during this tough time by offering for purchase prepared dinner boxes to go. Stay tuned for info about how you can be part of this great event and updates as planning progresses. Questions? Contact Foundation Executive Director Ginger O'Neil.
