Portfolio

I received our country's portfolio from Ms. Wall today and it looks good. Everyone did a decent job on their respective topics and I think we should be fairly successful at the HAMUN next week.

Non - MUN Update

I know it does not have anything to do with MUN but still : Congratulations to Jenn for a job well done at the District swim meet!

Small Update

Due to a track meet, I will be unable to attend the next MUN meeting scheduled for Wednesday, 30 January. I hope everyone else can make it. Just a couple more weeks until the Houston Area MUN convention. Also, the format of new posts on the site is as follows : items and information concerning the MUN at McCullough will be posted first, with a subsection containing links to DRC news articles below.
