MCMS Academic Night and Mandatory Fall Sport Meeting
Please note that our Academic night will take place on Wednesday, September 3rd. You will follow your students schedule from first “hour” to seventh “hour”. Unfortunately you will not be able to sample a delicious school lunch! “Classes” will begin at 6:30 P.M. – your student has been asked to share their first hour classroom and teacher with you so you will know where to start, but the office will also be able to assist you in case they forget to share that information!
Two important meetings will be held prior to the start of our schedules. There will be a mandatory meeting at 5:30 P.M. for parents of anyone in a fall sport. This includes soccer, volleyball, and cross-country. Mrs. Weeks will chair this meeting at 5:30 P.M. in the library. Immediately following will be a presentation on ISAT scores presented by Mrs. Beam in the auditorium. The approximate start time for this will be 5:45. Please plan to attend one or both of these meetings.
I am looking forward to seeing all of our parents next Wednesday night!
Yours in Education,
Tracy Beam, Principal MCMS
