Mr. Holman's Weekly Parent Update 11/29/20

Dear Parents and Guardians:


We are looking forward to getting back to school for these few weeks prior to winter break.  We are beginning preparations for second semester here at MMS and across the district.  Toward that end, we are asking families to let us know if you will be requesting any changes in status for your child or children for second semester.  Please contact the MMS office or email me with any requests that you wish for.  These can include a moves from or to hybrid or changes  from A group to B group.  This current request assumes that the structure of school remains as it is, although we continue to hope for the earliest possible return to more student days in school. 


Winter sports update - Sports continue to be impacted by the local and state wide Covid-19 situation.  I will be sending out more information by Wednesday this week about girls basketball and wrestling.  We will be finishing the boys basketball season with final scrimmages on Friday, December 11.  We will continue to livestream those events until such a time as we can return to having an audience in attendance.  We will continue to create as many activities as possible for our students.  Thank you for your understanding and support!


Yearbooks - Our yearbook crew has been working creatively to produce an edition that will be quite unique, documenting responses to challenges that we have been facing together.  The price of the yearbook will remain at $22 through this Wednesday, after which it will increase to $25.  Yearbooks may be purchased online by accessing the 'Pay for Student Fees' tab on the MMS website, linked here:  <e~Funds for Schools >   If you do not know your child's ID number, please contact the MMS office.
