MMS Family Bulletin: January 1, 2018

Dear MMS Families –

Happy New Year! We wish you and your family a healthy, productive and fun 2018! Now it’s time to get back to the business of learning and growing!  

  • As we get closer to the heart of the winter, students are reminded to dress in layers and prepare for the cold. Please remember that the doors to MMS open at 7:45am and it is always best to dress for New England conditions to, from, and at school.
  • This week, students will take i-Ready diagnostic tests. i-Ready is a platform that helps us assess the progress of students in attaining English Language Arts and Math skills. In our efforts to promote student achievement, we are asking for the help of parents and guardians in motivating students to work as hard as they can on all assessments and tests. Thank you for having conversations with your children about hard work and perseverance!
  • Parents are asked to please play close attention to the traffic signs on Brown St.. Cars dropping students off on the side with the NO PARKING signs are potentially causing a safety issue. Also, there is no student drop off on the south driveway where busses exit. Parents dropping off students are asked to proceed down the driveway around the main office circle to the right and drop off students next to the curb at the main office area.
  • The Martin Theatre Company is preparing for the January 26 & 27 performance of the audience favorite, Peter Pan! Save the date and get ready for another outstanding MTC performance.
  • At MMS, we see the effects of social and new media on our students daily. As many students received new devices over the holidays, we ask parents to please be vigilant and to keep an eye on social media usage. Common Sense Media is a website that has a wealth of information for parents and students about the effects of media on children.
