Greetings Parents and Guardians!
We have had a great start to our 2nd semester at Monrovia Middle School. Our teachers have been revisiting our Bulldog Bylaws to remind students of our expectations as well as diving into our 3rd nine weeks curriculum. Mr. Tucker and I honored the students who had Perfect Attendance for the 2nd 9 weeks and those students who had Perfect Attendance for the entire first semester. We had 22 students who achieved Perfect Attendance for the entire first semester! We believe that attendance matters and every day counts in education and thank you for your support in getting your children to school!
This next week will be a busy one for our middle school students. We invite you to join us at the Mooresville Chicago’s Pizza on Monday from 5 pm - closing as part of our fundraising efforts for our middle school musical, Frozen. You can dine in or carry out, just let Chicago’s know that you are with MMS! Our annual MMS Talent Show will be Wednesday, January 22nd beginning at 7 pm in the Performing Arts Center. This is a fundraising event for our drama department and student tickets are $5 each and adult tickets are $10. We have so many talented students that will showcase their acts and I know they will not disappoint! We hope to see you there!
On January 29th our 8th grade will be touring the Area 31 facility at Ben Davis High School to learn about the many programs and educational opportunities they have for when the students are in high school. This is a free field trip and a wonderful learning experience for the students. Permission slips went home on January 17th and need to be turned in by January 28th.
Our MMS Cheerleaders are hosting the annual Snowball semi-formal dance on Friday, January 31st in the middle school gym. The dance will be from 6 pm - 8 pm, concessions and pictures will be available for purchase. This is a fun night for both our students and staff to let loose and dance the night away!
Our winter sports and extra-curricular activities are underway, so please be sure to check out our 7th and 8th grade boys’ and girls’ basketball schedules and our MMS wrestling team schedule. Many of our students also participate in Winter Guard and Show choir, so there are lots of opportunities to support your MMS Monrovia Bulldogs. Students can also join our Art Club, Board Game Club, or Math Counts Competition Team which meet after school. For a schedule of meeting times please contact Mr. Martin, Mr. Carter and Mr. Grismore.
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! For the most up to date information please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
