DATES TO REMEMBER

Wednesday, September 4

MMS Back to School Night 5-7PM! Please meet in the MMS Gym at 5:00PM. We highly encourage parents to bring their students for the evening!

MUSD policy does not allow any medication to be given at school, including "over the counter" medication, without having a Physician's permission note on file.Parents should prepare for the "occasional headache, etc." by having their Student's Physician fax a note to the school if they would like the school to be able to administer medication. Notes are good for one school year.Student's are NOT allowed to carry any medication at school without permission from the School Nurse.

For ATTENDANCE, please call Teri at (707) 987-1441. Please add this number into your phone!

Attendance cannot be changed after 48 hours. Parents must provide the note, the reason, and the excuse within 48 hours of the absence and we cannot go back in after that to change a student's attendance. The state has tightened everything up and we need to make sure our data is consistent. Parent Knowledge is no longer accepted as an excused absence by the State.

STUDENT OF THE MONTH: Izzy Barriga!

Employee of the Month: Tamara Slaight!

PARENTS: MMS is a CLOSED campus! You must sign in at the MMS Office before entering the school for any reason. Thank you.

Community Service forms are available in the MMS Office and online on our school’s website. Community service is not mandatory for middle school students, but we do honor those students who have completed 10 or more hours during their middle school career at 8th grade promotion. Students may not receive payment for their time, nor can their parent sign off of their form unless cleared prior by the office. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Sam in the office at sam.dean@middletownusd.org. Community Service forms are due to the office by Friday, May 15th!

PARENT INFO

Wednesday, 9/4

100 Parents Strong! Help us help our school. For $10 a month let’s band together to support our teachers. Our teachers are constantly using their own limited funds to purchase classroom supplies, or our students have to go without. This is our chance to give back. For $10 a month you can help support 2 teachers (one 7th and one 8th grade) for classroom materials, supplies, and/or necessities. Your donation will mean so much to our teachers, and that will help our students excel this year. Please join us in supporting our teachers because together we can be 100 Parents Strong!

You can sign up at the PTSO table at Back to School Night on September 4th!
