The make up date for the choir concert is Thursday, March 30th at 6:00 p.m. in the Auditorium. Notice the time change. It's now 30 minutes earlier.
It's been eerily quiet this week with no students around. This allowed for some touch up working to be completed from our construction project. One project that the elementary students will notice right away is the water fountain has been replaced. Hopefully we can get water all the time from this one. We had over 500,000 water bottle refills with the last one.
To finish out the trip, the band and choir stopped at Enchanted Springs ranch where they got to see some longhorns, pet a longhorn named Woodrow, eat a delicious BBQ dinner, watch a cowboy do some roping and whip tricks, and did some line dancing! Was a great way to finish out the trip. Everyone is now on the bus and headed north. See ya tomorrow night McGregor!
Perfect for St. Patrick's day. 1st grade door art

We are trying something new for our families and community members to view our basketball games and other activities from the comfort of home, or on their devices. Home basketball games can be viewed on the new platform called HUDL. You can go to the following web link and bookmark it to view home games live. https://www.team1sports.com/highschool/mn/?S=mcgregormercuries We are planning on using HUDL tonight for the Boys' Basketball game vs South Ridge. The broadcast will only be for the Varsity game and will go live at 6:50 p.m. This is free for families to use to view activities.
Don’t forget the Elementary concert is tomorrow, Wednesday, December 21st! There will be a dress rehearsal at 9:30 AM and the actual performance will be at 1:30 PM. Kindergartners should wear nice clothes. 1st-2nd ￼graders should wear black pants or leggings and will be dressed as snowmen, so they should bring a bright scarf and maybe mittens, or a stocking cap. 3rd-6th graders will wear red on top.
There have been questions as to if we will make up a snow day next Friday, December 23rd as it's marked on the school calendar. Because it is late notice we will not use Friday as a make-up day. Next week we will finish the week on Thursday as originally planned. Thank you and enjoy the holiday break!
