It is all sunshine and rainbows for Pope Farm this week... literally! Students learned all about flower bulbs and plant growth in their science classes. They later were led outside by science teacher Mr. Shutz to plant a flower bulb under the marked flags. Each color represents a different grade level. This creative garden will begin blooming in the spring and feature several perennial plants such as crocus, hyacinths, tulips, and calla lilies.

Over the weekend, our district learned about the passing of two of our seniors and a former Middleton High School student that were tragically lost in a car crash on October 2nd, 2021. These past few days have been extremely difficult for our students and staff. Our hearts are with those who knew and loved our students. There are never right words to bring solace to those grieving, but we wish to remind them they are not alone. During the MHS soccer game on Tuesday, students honored their classmates by wearing special shirts for all three seniors, John "Jack" Miller, Evan Kratochwill, and former student Simon Bilessi. The MCPASD family will continue to draw strength from each other during this difficult time. We choose always to remember the positive impact they had on their family, friends, and this community.
