The MNS Mindspark Superhero Challenge

To give your child the best educational experience possible, we have launched one of our biggest fundraisers of the year!

The MNS Mindspark Superhero Challenge kicks off January 25th with our digital pep rally. Students will experience an incredible S.T.E.A.M themed character program called Mindspark Mystery Lab.  They will learn five 21st-century character traits (Citizenship, Zest, Growth Mindset, Integrity, and Teamwork) that will help strengthen themselves and our world.  All events take place during the school day and involve all students.

On February 6th, students will participate in a 30-minute fitness challenge, led by the Boosterthon team! Please come and support your student as they complete 35 different exercises. We’re so excited to give our students the best experience possible as we encourage fitness and celebrate helping our school, MNS!

 The schedule for the fitness challenge that will take place in school on February 6th is as follows  (Times are approximate):

8:30-9:15  5th Grade
