Mr. Holman's Weekly Parent Update 02/10/20

Dear Parents and Guardians:  

Congratulations to the following MMS groups for great showings on Saturday!  Our MMS cheer team performed extremely well at the Orofino Maniacs Cheer competition, placing third in Pom, second in All-Girl stunt and first in Sideline! The MMS wrestling team placed second at the Potlatch Invitational Wrestling Tournament. Great job, and Go Cubs!

We had a short assembly for the full student body last Friday afternoon, sharing some reminders about some important expectations and safety practices.  One area of emphasis this semester is reducing student tardies and absences.  We reminded students that MSD policy 5000.01.01 states: "Every three tardies accrued in an individual semester attendance period will be counted as one absence. "    In addition to closely monitoring tardies and absences we will be rewarding homeroom groups with the lowest number of tardies at each grade level each week. Thank you for your help and encouragement from home as well!

Kindness Week: Our ASB kids along with adviser Tiffany Scripter have organized a Kindness/Spirit Week beginning tomorrow.  Thank you for taking time out to celebrate and recognize the many kindnesses we experience each day!

Kindness Coupons    Staff members have been given tickets  to handout to kids caught exhibiting kindness.  7th graders will man a table on the stage where kids can trade the coupons for Laffy Taffy, pencils and erasers.

 Thank You’s   Students can trade a thank you for a water bottle sticker!  8th graders will have a table on the stage at lunch where kids and staff can come write a thank you to someone at school, get a sticker, and ASB will deliver it on during Homeroom on Valentine’s Day.

 Locker Affirmations     6th graders will be attaching Post-its around the school to kick the week off.
