Dear Parents and Guardians:

In conjunction with the end of first quarter, MMS has a scheduled conference day coming up on Friday Nov. 3.  We are scheduling group conferences with selected families, and our teachers also have some availability for individual contacts on that day.  If you haven't been scheduled for a group conference but would like to touch base with a teacher or teachers, please send them an email. Please contact me or the MMS office if you have additional questions.  

End of quarter 1 - This week beginning Monday, October 30, is a three-day week for students.  We will be on B, C, and D schedules, Monday through Wednesday this week.  Wednesday has an extra homeroom, and students are released at 3:06 pm on that day.  We will end the day Wednesday with an assembly.  There is no school for students on Thursday, Nov. 2 and Friday, Nov. 3 because of professional development and conferences.
