Corporate Sponsors are promoted in several ways, including in Smoke and Scales, which has more than 2000 subscribers!

ATTENTION MLWGS PARENTS AND FRIENDS!
Registration for the Martin’s A+ School Rewards program starts today. The program earns cash for school programs every time you shop between October 9, 2015 and March 17, 2016.
To register your card:
· Log on to www.martinsfoods.com/aplus and designate our school ID #23112 using your BONUSCARD.
The MLWGS school number has changed, so even if you did this last year, your card will need to be registered again.
Last year this program brought in $1,500, with fewer than 130 families participating. It’s a nice payback for very little effort.
If you have any problems or questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
MECH TECH DRAGONS
Thanks to continued support from many volunteer mentors, MLWGS’s Robotics Team, the Mech Tech Dragons, had a busy summer with leadership training and building fighting Sumo-bots for Fall Festival. With the continued support of former parent, Samantha Marrs, the team’s leaders and sub-team leaders prepared a team mission statement, set vision goals, practiced communication and teaching skills, and evaluated self-awareness, empathy, personal strengths and goals. Look out for this model academic team championing STEM education!
