Garden Club

Our Fall Garden Club has been working hard. We've harvested the last of the edible vegetables and cleaned out the beds. Today we planted flower bulbs and garlic. We can't wait for spring to see them grow.
We have been learning about the important nutritional value of fruits and vegetables. As the colder weather sets in, we will be moving inside for some healthy cooking and eating!

School uniforms? The Governance Committee weighs in.

Last night Macdonough had it's first Governance Committee meeting of the 2014-2015 school year. Special guest, Superintendent Dr. Charles attended to hold a forum about how our community felt about school uniforms. The District has made no final decision one way or the other but is interested in finding out how the Middletown community feels about the possibility. An online survey will be available soon to all parents so you too can give your thoughts and concerns.
The Governance Committee meets the 3rd Thursday of the month. Parent, teacher and community leaders are elected each fall however all meetings are open to the Macdonough community. For more information, contact Mrs. Brick at
