Hello Middle School Parents and Guardians!
We have had another great month at Monrovia Middle School! Our athletes and other extra-curricular participants in fall activities worked hard to finish out their seasons and were honored at our Fall Pep Session on October 12th. We had a staff versus students Hungry Hungry Hippo game and it was so much fun! If you have not already done so, please check out the video and photos on our MMS Facebook page!
Our middle school cheerleaders participated in the State competition and we are so proud of the growth they have shown throughout their season. From the beginning of the season to the end they improved over 70 points! Our Marching Bulldog Brigade competed in the state Semi-State competition and advanced to the state finals, which will be on Saturday, November 3rd. Way to go Marching Bulldogs! Our students with special needs participated in the Martinsville Fall Festival Special Olympics event in early October and made us so proud! They had fun and positively represented Monrovia Middle School. Our choirs had their first concert this month and it was wonderful! The hard work and effort the students put forth was evident and so entertaining!
As a school we collected items that will be placed in “Comfort Kits” and donated to local foster agencies and Child Services offices. I am overwhelmed by the generosity our students and families! We collected over 30 articles of clothing, over 40 toys and activities and over 400 hygiene items! Mrs. Bemenderfer and the United Way Council will be organizing them to be placed in the “Comfort Kits” and will be delivered soon. This was a grade level competition and our 8th graders won! The students have earned a Kona Ice party for their generosity.
