Dear Parents and Guardians:


Thank you very much to all families who provided treats and sustenance for Staff Appreciation this past week.  The response was tremendous and much appreciated!


Thank you for your input as we are working on plans for the beginning of second semester.  If you have not already filled out the Moscow School District survey for each student who is or will be attending the Moscow School District next semester, please do so as soon as possible.  The survey is scheduled to close Monday at 8 am, and the link is here:     Thanks again for helping us with planning and scheduling.  Please contact me if you have additional questions.


MMS Wrestling and Girls 7-8 Basketball: This next season begins right after winter break.  We are working with Moscow High School closely as we share facilities during this busy season.  Tentative event schedules for both sports will appear on the MMS Sports and Activities calendar on our website this week.  Registration is open in RegisterMyAthlete. 


Wrestling Information Meeting:  The great sport of wrestling is about to begin at MMS and we are excited to begin another wonderful season! Anyone who is interested in joining our squad should complete the survey:  and make sure to register on before the first day of season, Jan 5.  There will be a parent information meeting, via Zoom:  on Tuesday,  Dec 15 at 7pm to cover all relevant information about this season and program.  Mr. Holman and Coach Haley will be co-host this meeting.  Hope to “see” you there!


Wednesday Office Hours +:  It was great to see a sizeable number of students in the building on Wednesday last week!  Teachers and students made great use of time, and MMS paraprofessional staff helped tremendously!  Please remember that your child can request to come in to work with teachers before or after school each day and on Wednesday mornings if room allows.
