Attention all 8th grade Parents  

The 8th grade students have been busy preparing for the upcoming Middle School Model United Nations conference.  We are looking forward to wrapping up these lessons with presenting and debating our resolutions in a few weeks.  We will be traveling from school each day from Tuesday, January 24 until Friday, January 27.  More details will follow regarding our schedule of activities for that week and our transportation arrangements. For now, I wanted to make you aware of the dress code requirements for the conference.  This dress code is strictly enforced by the MUN organization, and I thank you in advance for your cooperation.  

The guidelines are listed below.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding the MUN conference.  Thank you so much for your cooperation.  We are looking forward to a challenging and rewarding experience at the conference.
