Book Return Days are today, May 27 and tomorrow, May 28. Students are scheduled for a 20 minute window to promote social distancing. All school property (books, technology, instruments, uniforms, parking permits, etc.) must be returned before the end of our academic year, otherwise, fines or fees may be assessed. They will also have a chance to clear out their lockers, drop off any uniforms, return any library materials, drop off any technology, return any musical instruments, or pick up any medications. Please print out the instruction sheet and bring it with for your scheduled time. Seniors must complete the supplement on the back of the sheet and drop it off upon departure from the school in order to graduate on June 3-4. Copies of the instructions and supplement will be available when entering through the Bluestone Lobby.

Mrs. Charity will be in the main office for any fees or fines. No more than 50 people will be in the building at a time.

This year's Senior Baccalaureate Service will take on a new format. Due to the Governor's executive order restricting social gatherings, the PTSA is no longer able to host this service as planned at Temple Beth El; however, we will honor the graduating class with a video baccalaureate service featuring remarks from four Richmond area faith leaders and musical selections performed by fellow graduates. The PTSA will share this service through social media, offering seniors a keepsake video to help celebrate their hard work and achievements.

In addition, we would like to feature individual pictures of the seniors in their caps and gowns. To help us create our video, we need seniors to share individual pictures of themselves in their gap and gown by June 1.

Please upload your photos HERE

On Saturday, May 23, MLWGS juniors Jacob Lee, Ryland Wilson, and John Staley hosted Cube to Cure 2020, an online Rubik's cube competition designed to raise money for COVID-19 relief.  The event brought together over 100 competitors from 12 countries to race in solving Rubik's cube puzzles.  From registration fees, voluntary donations, and sales of cube-patterned face masks, Cube to Cure 2020 raised $2600, which will be donated to Heart to Heart International. 

You can still buy Cube Themed Face Masks or donate; learn more at the Cube to Cure website.
