Hello Parents and Guardians!
“I’m so glad we live in a world where there are Octobers” is a beautiful line from Anne of Green Gables and one I absolutely agree with! We have had a busy September at MMS and are ending our 1st 9 weeks with lots of student growth and success. Our school participated in the National Rock Your School event and our teachers and staff worked very hard to surprise our students by creating academically rigorous activities while also mixing in fun and the love of learning. Our goal as a school is to set high expectations for student behavior and learning so that we can better prepare our students to be successful in the future. We are setting the bar high and we know they can reach it!
We will have our first House Competition on October 7th in which each House Athletic team will participate in a dodge ball tournament with the winning house earning 100 points! We have watched our Houses grow and build relationships with each other as they tackle collaborative learning activities and learn communication strategies.
Our 7th grade will be visiting Bradford Woods next week on October 9th – 11th. This is a great opportunity for our students to work on cooperative learning strategies, team building, and character building activities. The students will leave from school on Wednesday, October 9th and return to the middle school on Friday, October 11th. Students and their luggage can be signed out on Friday the 11th in the auditorium lobby any time after noon.
We will celebrate Kindness Week beginning October 21st. We will focus on teaching strategies to the students on how to be kind and respectful to others, even if we have a disagreement. We will have school-wide activities planned for each day that we are excited to share with our students.
Our Parent/Teacher conference night is Thursday, October 24th. Our middle school will be open from 3 pm – 7 pm for you to meet with your child’s teachers. Please know this is an open format and is first come first served. Teachers will have seats available for you to wait outside their classroom if need be. This is a great opportunity for all of us to work together in order for our students to achieve success. I know some may not be able to make it, but as always, please contact the teachers at any time with concerns or questions.
Please remember that school will not be in session October 14th – 19th, so enjoy your fall break! We will also not be in session on Friday, October 25th, therefore have a restful long weekend!
I want to thank each of you for your continued support of MMS. Our staff is working very hard to positively impact students and help them to achieve their goals and we could not do it without you!
