Girls Scout Troops

Thank you and Congratulations to Girl Scout Troop #2482 for their Silver Award Project, the troop selected Myford’s garden. They have not only cleaned a heavily overgrown garden, but added many fruit trees, herbs, and other plants. Cheerful signs now greet garden visitors. The troop ensured that the bounty will be plentiful and the garden will be long-lasting. Congratulations to Elsa Choi, Jenna Flechner, Elie Phan and Mikayla Vu. They will be receiving their award this weekend. Most of these wonderful girls are Myford Alumni.

Summer Reading

Did you know that students who don’t read over the summer actually start the school year off worse than when they leave?  Don’t let that happen to your children!  Read every day and log your minutes.  Students who complete the Summer Reading Challenge will get a free book when they return.  See attached.
