Mr. Holman's Weekly Parent Update 11/01/21

Dear Parents and Guardians:

This week we will be following the A schedule on all three student days, contrary to the original calendar and the calendars in student agendas.  This allows teachers to see all of their students each day.  I apologize for any confusion. There is no school for students on Thursday and Friday this week.  We are off to a great start with boys basketball, and have 

Conference day, November 4 - Due to Covid concerns we will not have an open conference time for all to attend this fall. This is not our preference and we hope for the soonest possible safe return to open conferences. Conference day (by invitation) for MMS is Thursday, November 4.  We are continuing to identifying and prioritize students who may need some extra support at this time, and will are inviting families to either a live conference or a Zoom conference, depending on your choice.  We are putting the finishing touches on those dates.  If you do not have a conference scheduled but would like to talk to one or more of your child's teachers, please send an email to them.  Teachers will do the best they can to contact you during times between their scheduled conferences on that day.  Please contact us if you have questions, and thanks for your understanding.

Winter Cheer begins practice Monday, Nov. 1 in the MMS MPR

MMS Virtual Fall Music Concert, Wednesday, Nov. 3 - Due to limited space and the current Covid-19 circumstances, MMS will be both recording and broadcasting our Fall Music Concert virtually this Wednesday afternoon. We do not have enough room to safely accommodate an audience just yet, so we will once again be bringing the concert to you.  The live feed will be available through Facebook and recordings will be posted on the MMS website to be viewed at any time.  I will send a dedicated email by Tuesday with link information.  The approximate schedule for Wednesday afternoon performances are:

  • 3:30 pm   Orchestra Performance in the MPR/ Choir warm-up in music room
  • 4:00 pm  Choir performance/ Beginning Band warms-up in music room
  • 4:40 pm  Beginning Band Performance/ Wind Ensemble warm-up in music room
  • 5:10 pm  Wind Ensemble performance
  • 5:30 pm   Wrap up/Clean up

Thank you to all of our student musicians, to parents/families for your support and understanding and to Mr. Garrett and Mrs. McIntosh for your great work with our kids.
