Happy Friday Crusaders!

Although our time in the building was cut short, we had a very successful week here at MWMS. As you have been made aware, we are moving to fully remote instruction for the two weeks following Thanksgiving Break, as well as the two weeks following Winter Break. During these fully remote periods, we will be following the “Fully Remote Schedule” that can be found here. Please note that this does include a 9 period schedule for Monday that will start on November 30th. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

MWMS Clubs:

Here at the middle school we have many clubs that our students can get involved with. Your child has been emailed the list of codes needed in order to access the Google Classrooms for these clubs and to reach the advisor for more information. Descriptions of the clubs can be found here.

Parent Teacher Conferences:

Virtual Parent Teacher Conferences will continue on the afternoon of December 8th. These conferences will take place via Google Meet. Please remember to remain in the virtual waiting room until your assigned time. We have received positive feedback from both parents and staff about using the Google platform for these very important conferences.

STAR Testing:

Last week our students completed the STAR Reading Assessment and this coming Monday, November 23rd, the STAR Math test will be administered remotely to all of our students. It will be important that your student completes the testing during the time frame that is indicated by their Math teacher. You can find a short video to help explain STAR testing. The English version is here and the Spanish version of the video here.

Materials Pick-Up:

We have been holding a Materials Pick-Up for our Track C, Remote Only Students. This pick up is ONLY for those students who have been told by their 2nd Quarter teacher/s that they need to come and retrieve supplies for their 2nd Quarter classes. Please call the main office or email Carol Polizzi to make arrangements to come to MWMS and we will gather the supplies that your student needs for his/her classes.

Student Pictures:

Student Pictures have arrived and can be picked up at the building. Please call the Main Office or email Lorraine Loening to arrange pick up, during school hours, on either Monday November 23rd or Tuesday November 24th.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this update and for your continued support!

Take care,

Michael Maesano
