During a regular school year, our final academic recognition is our annual Scholastic Recognition/Honors Night ceremony, typically held in the Performing Arts Center at Bradley HS. At that ceremony we recognize our students who earned cumulative Magna Cum Laude and Summa Cum Laude through the third nine weeks of the school year as well as 8th graders who achieved Summa Cum Laude for their two years in middle school. Again, with the closure of school we were unable to have this ceremony.
To recognize those students, we have compiled a video tribute with a scrolling list of all 370 of these students, as well as picture tributes to those 8th graders who achieved two years of Summa Cum Laude status. We are proud of these students and truly wish we could have recognized them in person. Congratulations!
Certificates, as well as a copy of the program we would have used, will be mailed home to each student.
A huge thanks goes out to Mr. Barton, Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Shiffer and Mrs. Anita Collins for all their work on the certificates, programs, awards and the video.
This coming week we will be mailing out certificates to all students who earned Academic Honors (Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude and Summa Cum Laude) for the 3rd nine weeks. Due to the school closure we were unable to recognize those students during school but their names are posted on the MMS website.
Each MMS Staff member was given the opportunity to choose one student to receive a Jaguar Pride Award for the 2019-2020 school year. We asked the staff member to think of one student who, in their opinion, best showed what Jaguar Pride is all about.
Jaguar Pride can mean many things. It could be someone who has consistently exhibited our PBIS characteristics of Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe. It could be a student who consistently has shown R Factor skills. It could be a student that exhibits our CLAW characteristics of Character, Leadership, Attitude and Will. It could very simply be a student who has consistently exhibited traits staff members feel need to be recognized. This award doesn’t necessarily go to someone who is on Honor Roll or who is Student of the Month, but it could be. Overall, the recipients of this award are students that our individual staff members feel represent the characteristics we want Memorial Middle School students to exhibit.
In a normal school year, we would have had a reception before school and have each teacher present a certificate to the student they chose. Obviously that is not possible this year. In some cases, the staff member will be making arrangements to deliver your certificate to your home. In the other cases, the certificates are being mailed home.
We are very proud of our Jag Pride Award recipients. We are appreciative of their efforts this year, as well as the kind of people they are. We thank them for being a great representative of MMS.
The Choir teachers at MMS are excited to share with you their “Social Distance Choir”-its not quite the virtual choir you have seen circulating, but the music you will hear was recorded by each of our singers remotely in their own homes and then edited together by Ms. Burkett. Big thanks to Ms. Burkett’s friend Bobby Phillips for recording the guitar!
Dear Memorial Middle School Families, We hope all is well with you and your families. We miss you all. The end of the school year is quickly approaching. As students and teachers finish eLearning for the year, we are making plans to conduct our end-of-year wrap-up in a way that ensures the safety of everyone. Student owned items from the school must be returned to our students (locker contents and other personal items from classrooms). District-owned materials must be returned by students. These items include iPads, library books, athletic uniforms and equipment, musical instruments and practice books, and other items. Please begin to locate and gather those items for return in the next few weeks.
Locker Clean Out: Our custodians have cleaned out all items from student lockers in both the hallways and the locker rooms. Those items were placed in plastic bags with the locker number written on the bags.
Pick-Up/Drop-Off Schedule (May 26-29th): To accomplish the task of distributing materials to students while maintaining health and safety guidelines, we will be conducting a curbside pick-up/drop-off the week of May 26-29th. No student or family will be permitted to enter the building. We have listed a schedule below organized by date, grade level, and alphabetical by last name. MMS staff members will help facilitate the curbside process.
Dates and times:
|Tuesday, May 26||8-11 am||7th grade||Alpha A-M|
|Tuesday, May 26||1-4 pm||7th grade||Alpha N-Z|
|Wednesday, May 27||8-11 am||8th grade||Alpha A-M|
|Wednesday, May 27||1-4 pm||8th grade||Alpha N-Z|
|Thursday, May 28||2-4 pm||Make up – both grades||All students|
|Thursday, May 28||5-7 pm||Make up – both grades||All Students|
|Friday, May 29||9-11 am||Make up – both grades||All Students|
• If your child believes they may have items in the school Lost and Found or have items from the Phys ED/Athletic Locker rooms, please plan on coming during the Friday, make-up time slot. Arrangements will be made by MMS staff members on duty for you or your child to search through those items at that time.
We will have four drop off/pick up zones at MMS (See map above). Parents will enter from the Walker Road main entrance and be directed around to the back of the building, where they will loop through the bus turn-around and enter the first zone.
Zone 1 – iPad and library book drop off, will be at the back door, entrance C6. MMS staff will be assisting in placing Ipads in zip locked plastic bags at turn in. Instructions for preparing iPads are listed in this message. Please place library books in plastic bags prior to turn-in, if possible.
**There will also be a designated area in this zone to drop off any books/materials that need to go back to the Innovation Campus. (ILC/HUB)
Zone 2 – athletic uniform drop off, will be by the first door across from the stadium, entrance D13. Please put items in a bag and label with first and last name, sport, and items enclosed. Coaches will give more information to individual sports.
Zone 3 – instrument and music book drop off, will be by the music hall door across from the stadium, entrance D14.
Zone 4 – all pickup of student items (locker contents, Art Projects etc.), will be at the front door of the building, entrance A1.
Our goal is to have a continuous loop for parents to travel, while avoiding a long line of cars that potentially would stretch on to Walker Road.
Some things to keep in mind regarding this schedule:
Along with your iPad turn in, remember to bring back all text books, library books, sports uniforms, musical instruments, and any other school issued items. Our staff has put together student personal items and will distribute when you return school issued items.
Over the next week all students are being asked to take some important steps BEFORE dropping off their district iPad for summer check-in. We are asking our parents to check with students to be sure this is completed. You and the student can follow these steps before your turn in appointment.
Please know that safety is a priority as we work through this end-of-year process. Feel free to reach out to your child’s teachers, school counselor, or administration with any questions you may have. Teachers will continue to be available for academic support through May 22nd, as class assignments continue to be completed.
Even though the end of this school year will look different, we are looking forward to seeing the students (even if it is through a car window). We would like to thank all of you for your patience and understanding during our eLearning experience. Thank you for working with us to ensure this process runs smoothly while keeping our Jaguar students, parents, and staff safe.
