MPISD staff receive a surprise

Wednesday, December 7, was the annual “Ham Day” in MPISD, where all staff members are traditionally gifted a Christmas ham. But this year, instead of ham, MPISD staff members received “bread” in the form of $500! Superintendent Judd Marshall, Deputy Superintendent Deb Malone, Director of Facilities Van Bowen, and members of the MPISD Board of Trustees were on hand all day Wednesday passing out Christmas greetings and the surprise.

Marshall said, “We are so appreciative of our staff for all the work they do for our kids each and every day. We are proud to be able to do this for our staff this year.”

MPISD will be closed from Monday, December 19 – Monday, January 2. Staff will return for a staff development day on Tuesday, January 3.

Classes will resume for the second semester on Wednesday, January 4.
