It looks like the Freshmen are all moved in and within the next couple of days, all students will be back on campus. The CCM is getting ready for Orientation Worship this Sunday morning at 10am in the Clayton Center. We join with Church Relations and welcome the area churches for Church & College Day before the worship service. First chapel service will be September 2nd with Anne McKee as our speaker. Looks like it will be a great year!
Friends and family, I could use your help. I am $165 away from reaching my goal for my MTRGive Project and having what I need to start the school year off right for my students. Please consider donating. Here's what I figure: if 15 people donated $11 dollars, we've met the goal. If 10 people donate $16.50, we're good. If 5 people donated $33, the goal would be met. You can check out the project and donate using this link: http://mtrgive.org/campaigns/ms-wilkss-visible-thinking/
Dear MC Family, Hello, my name is Nikki Wilks, and I am a proud 2012 alumna of the college. After Maryville, I moved to Memphis to join a program called Memphis Teacher Residency (www.memphistr.org, http://mtrlife.org/profiles/nikki-wilks, http://memphistr.org/cceexplained). This fall I will start my second year in the classroom teaching sophomore and senior English at Kingsbury High School(www.kingsburyhs.org) in the Graham Heights community (http://memphistr.org/grahamheights). As many of you know, funding is slim in the education world. Therefore, I need your help. If you could, please check out my project and my friends' projects here in Memphis and consider donating (http://mtrgive.org, http://mtrgive.org/campaign/ms-wilkss-visible-thinking). Any little bit would help. I am raising funds to get a document camera to help model thinking for students and organizational supplies to help my classroom management. If you would like more info, please check out the links above or feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much for your on-going support and encouragement as I do my work here in Memphis. Sincerely, Nikki Wilks email@example.com
Even though the deadline has past for Horizons, you can still register to come. Contact our office if you know of someone who would love to come to this unique camp for high school students located on the campus of Maryville College.
Just because chapel is over doesn't mean there is nothing going on in the CCM! Horizons, our summer youth camp is coming up in one month and it will be a blast. Make sure to tell your high schoolers about this opportunity. Also, in two weeks, our Freshman Bonner students will go on their annual trip. Hopefully, we will be able to share some photos when they return!
