Mr. Holman's Weekly Parent Update 01/18/21

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Modified schedules for the next three weeks:  Just a reminder that for the next three weeks we will have adjusted schedules due to a student day off each week.  There will be school on Wednesday during each of those weeks, so no online or in person office hours on these Wednesdays.  This week we will have A students on Tuesday and Wednesday and B students Thursday and Friday.  Online only students may have online sessions this Wednesday as well.  As always, students should check into Canvas each day.  Next week we will have AABB on Monday through Thursday and the following week will be AABB on Tuesday through Friday.  I will provide reminders each week.

MMS Drama Performance:  Our MMS Drama class, along with their instructor Cyndi Faircloth, have produced a virtual performance of a play called 'Homeschooled'. Students and teacher have had to be creative and to learn some new things so that a performance could happen, and they have done a great job!  Broadway on Demand is hosting the production and there is a link on our Moscow Middle School homepage which will go live tonight at midnight.  We hope you enjoy the production!  In case you would like to provide a donation to the MMS Drama department there is information included in the link.  

Girls basketball scrimmages this week:  The girls have two scrimmage dates scheduled this week, Tuesday and Friday, in the McDonald school gym.  The games each last an hour, and the first will begin at 3:45 pm.  On Tuesday, the B teams will play first, then the A teams, and we will switch that order on Friday.  We are not yet allowed fans at middle school events so we will be broadcasting the games live.  I will send a dedicated email tomorrow morning with more specific information about how and when to access the link which coach Thill will send through Register My Athlete, if you would like to watch.  Thanks for your support!

Semester 2 schedules:  We will be providing semester 2 schedules to our students the week of January 25.  Hybrid students will receive theirs at school, and online only families will receive them by email.
