    Blue & White Tassel Ceremony

    Congratulations to all of the students that participated in the first annual Blue and White Tassel Ceremony.  These scholars earned at least eight tassels throughout the year for achievements both in and outside of the classroom.  Job well done!

    Eighth Grade Honor Walk:

    It is a tradition for our eighth grade students to walk from MMS to MHS on the last day of school. We plan to continue this special event on May 26th, and students will start their walk around 9:45 am and turn onto Whitlock Avenue at approximately 10:00 am. To participate, students must return their field trip permission form, which was given out in Launch this week. We would love to see parents line Whitlock Avenue (refer to link to MAP below) to celebrate our students. 

    1. Bus riders will be dismissed from MHS around 12:30 pm. Buses will take students home directly from MHS.

    2. Walkers and car riders will ride a bus back to MMS.

    3. Car riders can be picked up in the normal location (Big Blue Gym Parking Lot) around 12:45 pm.

    Seventh Grade Fun Day:

    On the last day of school, we will celebrate our 7th graders with a Fun Day. To begin the day, 7th grade students will cheer on our 8th graders as they begin their walk to MHS. For the remainder of the day, students will have activities on the practice field and gyms, and students will have the opportunity to watch a movie in our newly renovated auditorium. . We will have a DJ cranking up the music and ice-cold treats to cool students off. 

    Uniform Free Day & Spirit Wear Donations:

    The last two days of school will be uniform free.  During this time, we are also holding a uniform drive.  Students are encouraged, especially eighth graders, to donate their gently used uniform shirts and MMS spirit wear items on Wednesday (25th) and Thursday (26th). 

    Chromebook Return:

    All students should return their Chromebooks and chargers on Wednesday. In-person students will return to Launch at the end of the day to return their Chromebooks, and virtual students can return their Chromebooks to the main office during normal business hours.
