Welcome to Monrovia Middle!
Hello Parents and Guardians!
Our February flew by and I know that we are all ready for spring weather and most importantly spring break! We had a lot of wonderful things happen over the past month and more success to come!
Our cheerleaders hosted our annual Snowball dance and it was a great experience for the students! It was so fun to see everyone dressed up, dancing, and enjoying each other’s company. Our MMS Drama Department hosted the first MMS Talent Show and we are so proud of the confidence and abilities of our student performers. Mr. Tucker and I had a great time hosting the evening and having a chance to let our hair down and have a fun time with the students and their families. Mrs. Armour and Mrs. Sears did a FANTASTIC job organizing the event and I cannot wait to see what happens next year.
The 6th grade students visited Biz Town and I am so proud of the knowledge and effort put forth by the kids and the adults! Each person, even the chaperones, had a job to do and they all did it well! This field trip gave our students real-life experience in the workforce and I am so glad they had that opportunity. Thank you to Mrs. Reeder for spearheading the planning and organization of the curriculum and trip.
Our girls’ basketball and MMS wrestling teams have had great seasons and all of the student athletes have shown improvement and growth in their sport. Congratulations to the following wrestlers who were named Conference Champions: Gavin Ash, Isaac Ash, Lane Faulkenberg, Drew Elmore, and Evan Lyons. Congratulations to the following wrestlers who were named County Champions: Isaac Ash, Lane Faulkenberg, Jacob Hampton, Drew Elmore, Asher Clements, Brayden Shrake, and Preston Hall. It is a joy to watch our students grow as leaders on and off the court/mat!
7th graders! Do not forget that our Bradford Woods trip is April 8th – 10th. Money and permission slips are due soon! If you have questions please see Mrs. Bright-Hughes.
Our ILEARN (formerly ISTEP+) testing will begin April 22nd. Please help your child be prepared to do their best on this assessment by getting a good night’s sleep, eating breakfast, and encourage them to give their personal best.
Our spring sports are underway with golf and softball tryouts occurring next week. Softball tryouts will be Wednesday, March 13th and Thursday, March 14th from 6 pm – 7:30 pm in the Auxiliary Gym. The softball tryouts are open to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.
Spring break is March 22nd – April 1st with students returning to school on April 2nd. I hope everyone has an enjoyable and safe break!
We have some new and exciting plans that will start after spring break. Be sure to check out our MMS Facebook page for more teasers and information!
Thank you all for your continued support of our students, school and community. We know that by working together we can increase our students’ success!
