Mr. Holman's Weekly Parent Update 01/20/20

Dear Parents and Guardians:  

We wrap up our first semester this week and begin competitions for wrestling and girls A basketball.  Competitions for B basketball and sixth grade intramural basketball will begin next week.  As previously mentioned, weather related changes have impacted MHS and MMS by extension.  Athletic Director Craig Allen is working on practice/game schedules for B and 6th basketball that incorporate those recent changes.  We will get those to you as soon as they are ready.  Thanks for your patience and understanding!  

Sports picture day is Tuesday, Jan. 21 right after school, with pictures being taken in the MPR.  Athletes were given picture packets last week to bring home.  Please contact the MMS office if you have any questions.  Additionally, there will be no practice for B basketball and sixth grade girls on Wednesday, Jan. 22.  Teams will be created for both levels at practice on Thursday, Jan. 23.  

Bussing/transportation:  As reported in a recent Daily News article, the MSD is short on bus drivers at this time and particularly this week.  We have had to get a bit creative this week, more so than usual, to get our sports teams to their competition destinations.   Wrestling will take place on Thursday as scheduled, 5 p.m. at Lincoln Middle School in Clarkston.  Our scheduled A girls basketball games in Pullman are in question and we are working with Pullman to find a solution.  We will keep you posted.  

PST Corner:     Our next PST meeting is Tuesday, February 11 at 5:30 pm in the MMS music room.  If you would like to provide input to PST activities this year, please open and respond to the attached survey:  MMS PST Survey.docx    Please email your responses to   

Thank you!
