Parent News for February

Hello all!   I hope you all made it through the storm and stayed warm.

Here are the important dates and events that are coming up this month.

February 13 – Skype call with the author of our community read books, The Revealers and True Shoes.  As you probably know, we do a community read every year at MMS.  The purpose of this project is to get a group of people to read a book and talk about it throughout our community.  This year we chose a book that focused on students being empowered to stand up to bullying.  Throughout the year we will have activities each month that focus on creating a safe and positive community at MMS.  We are excited to be able to have the this years author, Doug Wilhelm Skype in with some of our students.

February 15 – MIYHS Survey administered.  Students will be taking a survey this Friday.  I mailed home all the details so you should have received information about this survey.  If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school counselor. (This date is different than in my emailed newsletter.)

February 15 – Schools close for February break at 5:00.

February 25 – Schools re-open.

February 27 – Guest Drummer!  Jordan Benissan will be joining us for an assembly on this day.  We are very lucky to have such an accomplished musician join us.  For more information on Jordan Benissan, go to the link below.
