Greetings MMS Families!
The month of October was amazing at MMS with wonderful things happening in and out of the classrooms! We started the month with awarding all of our students who did not receive an office referral during the 1st 9 weeks with a movie viewing in our beautiful auditorium. Each quarter we will reward those students who are making good choices with a surprise activity. This does reset each 9 weeks, so if a student does not earn it the first quarter he or she has the chance to earn it later in the year. We also awarded the students who earned Perfect Attendance during the 1st 9 weeks. Each student that met the criteria had their name in a drawing for a gift card to Farmhouse Brew and Emma Pridemore was our winner! We will do this each quarter to encourage school attendance.
MMS held our first House competition of the year in October, focusing on our athletic skills. The Houses participated in a dodgeball tournament with Volharding being our victor. The kids and staff had an amazing time working together as a team and practicing good sportsmanship!
Our 7th grade students visited Bradford Woods before fall break and learned team building skills, cooperative learning strategies, went canoeing and hiking. It is so fun to be with the kids outside of school and have the opportunity to get to know them in a different setting.
November will start with a Spirit Week Fundraiser for the Disabled American Veterans. Students can pay $1 to participate for the week. This will also be a House Competition, with the House raising the most money earning 50 points! Our dress-up days will be:
Monday, November 4th: PJ Day
Tuesday, November 5th: Hat Day
Wednesday, November 6th: Wacky Sock Day/Red for Education Day
Thursday, November 7th: Support Your Favorite Armed Forces Day
Friday, November 8th: Red, White and Blue Day
The week will conclude with our annual district Veterans’ Day program. This has become a tradition at Monrovia and something I look forward to each school year. The program will begin at 9 am in the high school gym and any family or friends are welcome to attend as we honor our veterans.
Please remember that school will not be in session due to Thanksgiving Break Wednesday, November 27th - Friday, November 29th. I hope you are able to enjoy that time with your family and friends.
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!
