WELCOME TO MONETT MIDDLE SCHOOL!
Cub Pride - September 4th, 2015
As you may have noticed, construction at the MIS/MMS campus is complete! The FEMA shelter is new, and hopefully, many have seen our new gates that assist with the closure of Ninth Street during school hours. On behalf of the school district, I would like to thank our city council and mayor for the passage of local bills to assist us with student safety at the MIS/MMS campuses. Their collaboration with MODOT and the school district has enabled us to close the street from 7:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. and prohibits parking on streets surrounding the campus from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
As part of the new procedures, educating parents and community is an essential piece to changes in traffic patterns. Parents were informed through various channels, and videos were made available (and still are) for parents to understand where to drop off and pick up their students. Parent cooperation has been very successful as students are being dropped off south of the gymnasium before school. This procedure was needed to reduce the amount of congestion on Ninth Street. Additionally, parents have reduced congestion after school when they pick up their student south of the gymnasium. This new procedure significantly reduces the amount of car and bus traffic at the end of the day. Feedback is also an integral part to the change process. Please take time to provide us feedback regarding the changes in traffic patterns. You can provide feedback by clicking on the following link: https://goo.gl/tk4fST
In the next couple of months, construction of a parking lot west of our campus will continue to ease congestion around the campus before and after school. As the parking lot nears completion, I will be educating parents of new procedures for student drop off and pick up. These procedures will continue to ease congestion after school while keeping students safe. Student achievement is a high priority at the MMS campus, and maintaining student safety helps us achieve our mission.
Progress Reports Go Home - September 8
Our first progress report is Tuesday, September 8, 2015. Reports will be distributed to students in homeroom. Please be sure to ask your student for the report once they come home. Families may also use PowerSchool to get up-to-date progress.
Tutoring begins September 10, 2015. Teachers tutor on Tuesday and Thursday after school from 3:15 to 4:25. You can find a tutoring application by clicking the link here. Families must complete the form turn in at least two days before the day the student plans to attend. This process allows us to secure bus transportation.
