A Message from Miller

Greetings from Cardinal Nation. As Spring approaches our Cardinals get busy as ever. There are so many things going on this time of year. Our students are, or will be soon competing in band, track and tennis. Our Theater students will have two performances, with one, Cinderella, coming up very soon. And of course, our teachers and students are working hard everyday for the upcoming STAAR in April and May.

A couple of events I wanted to make everyone aware is the PTSO Spirit Night at Texas Roadhouse this upcoming Monday night from 4-9pm. Also, our wonderful bands will have their UIL Concert Competition in Anna on March 29th. It would be great to get as many people there to watch those kiddos perform. And finally, the District Track Meet will take place in Aubrey on Monday, April 2nd.

I hope to see you all at these and other events. I have no doubt that our young Cardinals will continue to amaze us with their accomplishments. Have a wonderful weekend and Go Cards!

What's Been Shakin' at MMS

Thompson's Tales - A Message from Your Counselor

Hello parents! We are busy making plans for next year. Elective course selection sheets for the current 6th and 7th graders will be handed out April 2nd. Students will need to rank their elective choices in order of preference and have parents sign. Course selection sheets will need to be returned no later than April 18th. If students do not turn in a sheet their electives will be chosen for them.

And Then There is Always This . . .
