Next week and Beyond at MPK

Posted on January 17, 2020

Since there is no school on Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, January 20, there will be no after school program at MPK. We will, however, have a day camp which you can find in the MPK app.

We will also have open gym from 5:30 to 7:00 on the 20th, so this is a good opportunity to work on colored stripes before testing next month. Tentative test dates are Monday, February 17, for intermediate students and Wednesday, February 19, for advanced students.

The DeForest school district also has early release next Friday, January 24. We are offering a half day camp, which you can also find in the MPK app. The pick up window for the half day camp is 4:00 to 5:30 pm.

If you’re interested in our weapons classes, we’ll be starting out next rotation with nunchaku soon so stay tuned for more information on that.
