“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.” Henry David Thoreau

Dear MMS Families –

Happy Thanksgiving Week! I hope that you enjoy the holiday and are able to relax with family and friends. Here are a few details about things happening at MMS.

  • Report Cards were distributed last week. Parents are asked to please sign the envelope and students will return it to his/her homeroom teacher.
  • Mentoring takes place on Tuesday. Mentoring is a weekly opportunity for every student at MMS to work with an adult to set and review goals and check their progress in Skyward. Parents are asked to talk their child about mentoring and SMART goals. Parents are also encouraged to login to Skyward frequently to keep up to date with student grades and attendance.
  • This week are MMS Spirit Days. The Student Council chose Monday to be Twins Day. Students and teachers will dress alike with a friend or teacher! On Tuesday, we will have a pep rally at which students will participate in fun events. Each grade will wear a different color. 8th graders will wear blue, 7th graders will wear white, 6th graders will wear red (for Townie Pride).
  • The PTA Cookie Dough Fundraiser purchases will arrive at MMS on Monday, November 18th. The orders will be available in the MMS cafeteria 3:00-7:00 PM.
  • The PTA is promoting some upcoming fundraisers. Paint Night will take place on Friday December 8 at 7:00 PM. The event is $20/person and everyone is invited. Bring some friends and make a night of it!. Remember that the money that the PTA raises goes directly to MMS programs like field trips and awards nights. The PTA is also sponsoring a SkyZone gift card sale. Flyers will be sent home. $5 of every $20 gift card will go to MMS!
  • Our Family Involvement Committee has planned a Gingerbread House event for December 14th (5:30-7:30). Families will be able to  purchase and build a gingerbread house, drink hot cocoa, listen to holiday music and enjoy some seasonal cheer.
  • The Martin Middle School Events Calendar can be found here. Please keep an eye on the calendar for upcoming events.
  • December 7th will be Lifetouch School Picture Retake and Make-up Day.
  • Please check out the MMS Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/martinwildcats). It is a wonderful representation of the amazing school community the we are.
