Good Afternoon MMS Parents and Guardians!
We hope everyone had an enjoyable winter break and are getting back into the routine of school as the second semester begins! We have a lot of exciting things happening over the next month, so let’s get started!
Our MMS musical has been cast and rehearsals have begun for Willy Wonka, Jr. One way our drama department will be earning funds for this amazing event is the first annual MMS Talent Show in our Performing Arts Center coming up on January 18th with doors opening at 5:45 pm. Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults, children 4 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased at the door. We hope to see you there!
Our MMS cheerleaders are sponsoring the annual Snowball Dance on Saturday, January 19th beginning at 7 pm and ending at 9 pm. Tickets are $10 each and concessions and photos will be available for purchase. Students should enter the building through Door 2 and be picked up promptly at 9 pm at Door 2. Several parents have asked about the dress code for that evening and I want to share that spaghetti straps ARE allowed, but the fingertip length rule will still be in effect for the length of the dress, as well as no midriff showing. This is a great fundraiser for our cheerleaders, so please plan on joining us at this fun event!
Our 8th grade students will be attending a field trip to the Area 31 center at Ben Davis on the morning of January 24th. This is a free field trip to introduce the many programs available to the students once they enter high school. The buses will leave at 8 am and return at 11 am in time for lunch. Permission slips will be going home later this week.
Our school has been selected to be a part of the National Association for Educational Progress testing on February 6th. This is a math and reading test that will give data to our federal government from schools across the nation. Only 50 students from our 8th grade will be selected to take the assessment on February 6th and will be notified earlier that week.
Our band and choir members will be participating in the Solo and Ensemble competitions later this month. We wish all of those involved good luck!
Please be sure to check out our MMS athletic schedule and come out to support our boys’ basketball team, girls’ basketball team, and our wrestling team. The students and coaches work very hard to excel and they are exciting to watch!
Thank you all for your continued support for our students, school and community. We know that by working together we can increase our students’ success!
