Week of June 9, 2021

Textbook Return

School resources and text return takes place on Friday, June 11, from 8 a.m. to noon for students currently on virtual learning. Resources/texts will be returned to teacher classrooms or another designated location. A comprehensive list will be available at the bluestone lobby upon check-in. If a student cannot make it to campus on Friday, June 11, they should email their teachers to make alternative arrangements the following week. For clerical purposes, we strongly encourage drop-offs on June 11. All books or other materials must be returned no later than Friday, June 18. Students present on campus will return their books over the next few weeks through their normal class schedule.

Rising Seniors, Register for Boot Camp

College Boot Camp will return to a fully in-person event in August 2021. Interested students of the class of 2022 may register at this link AND must pay on the MLWGS website by Friday, June 11. Information about fee waivers, if needed, is included within the Sign-Up Genius.

Give a Timeless Gift to Your Grad!

The Governor’s School Foundation invites families of MLWGS seniors and graduates to purchase inscribed pavers to leave a lasting tribute at the school. Pavers are a great graduation gift from parents, grandparents, or anyone trying to find something special to give their favorite graduate(s). You can purchase either a bluestone paver inside the school lobby or a brick paver to be placed on the Lombardy Street walkway. All donated funds beyond the cost of the engraving are tax-deductible.

Orders must be received by July 1. The cost is:
* $500 for an exterior brick paver (up to 3 lines of text with 13 characters/spaces per line)
*$1,000 for a bluestone lobby paver (up to 3 lines of text with 13 characters/spaces per line)

Order online or contact Ginger O'Neil.
