Good Afternoon Parents and Guardians,
We have had an exciting and accomplished month of February at the middle school! Our 7th and 8th grade girls’ basketball teams had a successful season; our 7th grade team going 17-1 and winning a conference championship. Our MMS wrestling team has also experienced success and brought home a conference championship! I am so proud of the time, effort and sportsmanship the students have put forth during their seasons!
Our fine arts students have also had an amazing month. We had a number of band and choir students participate in the Solo and Ensemble contest, many who qualified for State and went on to earn a Gold rating. MMS also had 15 students whose artwork is being showcased at the capitol building in Indianapolis. The amount of practice and dedication our students are putting forth to become better at their craft is amazing and I am so proud of them.
Spring sports are right around the corner with many call out meetings and tryouts occurring. Softball tryouts will be held on March 9th from 5:30 pm-7:30 pm in the Auxiliary Gym. This is open to any 6th, 7th or 8th grade girl. We will have a call out meeting for girls and boys track this upcoming week during 4th period. Please be sure to check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for the latest dates and times.
Our 8th grade FFA members are participating in their contest this Saturday, March 9th. Students will be competing in several categories such as quiz team, public speaking, and the creed. This is a great opportunity for the students to practice these skills as they prepare to enter high school.
Our final round of the Social Competition will be March 13th. We have 20 students that have worked hard to hone their conversation skills and are ready to work the room at our first ever MMS networking reception. The students will meet and greet community members and be evaluated on their ability to work the room. The winner of this final round will get a $100 Visa gift card!
The post prom committee is sponsoring a St. Patrick’s Day Dance on Friday, March 13th. The dance will be held in the MMS gym from 3 pm - 5 pm. The cost to get in is $5 and there will be concessions available.
