Welcome to the US Student Life announcements and news blog interface, which is also an extension of the US Mulgrave eFolio: TheMulgraveCitizen @ https://pln.mulgrave.com/mulgravecitizen
This site is home to all your news and alerts about student happenings, resources 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 Student Life post. You are also encouraged to sign up for TMC email subscription or TMC RSS feed (to iGoogle or Google Reader, for example). 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 life and school happenings. The Mulgrave community can also keep up-to-date on TMC news by following the Mulgrave Twitter account: @MulgraveSchool.
Don’t forget: sometimes the obvious is innovative and amazing. Don’t hold back. Share the obvious:
