Welcome to week 3 for your new US Student Life announcements and news blog interface, which is also an extension of your new US Mulgrave eFolio: TheMulgraveCitizen @ https://pln.mulgrave.com/mulgravecitizen
This site will be the home to all your news and alerts about student happenings and opportunities for citizenship, service, CAS and social good throughout the year. You will get an email at the start of each school week with a link to the latest news and opportunities. You are also strongly encouraged to sign up for TMC email subscription or RSS feed (to iGoogle or Google Reader, for example). Parents, students and staff can also subscribe to site email or feeds (see top right sidebar for subscriptions). By doing so, you will receive the full text posting in your inbox/reader as soon as it is published, rather than receiving just a link via email. You will also receive any additional alerts about other student and school happenings. The Mulgrave community may also be able to follow TMC on Twitter in the future and receive regular tweets and alerts about Upper School Student Life.
