How to Make Smoke and Scales Your Direct Connection to MLWGS News

Wanted: Dragon News! Smoke and Scales is an electronic newsletter designed to keep students and parents in touch with the school and the community. You will receive an email on Tuesdays linking you to the site for updated recent articles in Smoke and Scales.  We welcome news and information from faculty, parents, students and school administrators. Let us know about awards, successes and opportunities in our Green Dragon community.

How to submit news:  Please send your text email to by Friday for inclusion in the next blog update of Smoke and Scales. Please send a text email as you would like to see it appear on the blog – we’ll use that as a base while editing for space, relevance, and adherence to PTSA and school guidelines. If you have a photograph that relates to your news article - please attach the digital image to your email message in *.jpg (jpeg) format. Please include a phone number where you can be reached if we need additional information.

Avoid Delivery Problems: Add to your address book or safe sender list to help ensure delivery.

Add A New Address To The Mailing List: Because the school administration sometimes uses the Smoke and Scales mailing list to distribute announcements of a time sensitive nature, we recommend that all parents, guardians and students add their email address to our mailing list. You may add additional work and personal email addresses at any time using the following link:
