Hello MAC Family!This year is ending in a different way than we wanted for our students, but especially for our 5th graders. We couldn't hold our normal awards ceremony, but we still wanted to recognize the 5th graders for their hard work this year. Enjoy!Hola familia MAC!Este año está terminando de una manera diferente a la que queríamos para nuestros estudiantes, pero especialmente para nuestros alumnos de 5to grado. No pudimos celebrar nuestra ceremonia normal de entrega de premios, pero aún queríamos reconocer a los alumnos de 5th grado por su arduo trabajo este año. ¡Disfrutar!
