Mr. Holman's Weekly Parent Update 10/13/19

Dear Parents and Guardians:

In an effort to make sure we communicating well as everyone is learning to navigate TeacherEase we are sending a higher number of progress reports home than is usual for first quarter.  We want to make sure that you have access to information which may include missing assignments, etc. that will help your child be successful.  You should see those reports in the mail within the next couple of days if a teacher or teachers thought it would be beneficial to send one. We won't mail one otherwise. and it is always a good idea to check periodically online. A time or two a week is usually plenty.  Our scheduled week for conferences is Oct. 28 to Nov. 1.  We are working on that schedule, and I will notify you by email as soon as it is finalized.  

8th Grade CORE Project:  On October 23rd or 24th (half the 8th Grade class each day), our 8th Graders will have the opportunity to participate in the amazing CORE PROJECT!  The CORE PROJECT uses a variety of interactive activities to facilitate compassion and understanding. The CORE PROJECT staff believes that connecting with others in a positive way is the best way to address many of the problems and issues that teens face in today’s world, such as bullying, engaging in risky behaviors, and low academic motivation/achievement.   The ultimate goals are to enhance mutual support and understanding among students, and reinforce healthy decision making as a norm.  For more information, go to: https://www.thecorepro.com/  8th graders will be bringing permission slips home for this event.  In order to facilitate this schedule, we will be modifying our weekly schedule for Oct. 21-15 as follows:  B - C - A - A - D  

PST Corner:  Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the first MMS Parent Support Team meeting of the year.  The next meeting will take place in early November.  Stay tuned for more information.
