MMS Minute

October 2021

Family Message

We have had a spectacular start to our school year and our students are adjusting to routines and procedures to model our Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) "Be A Bobcat." Our seventh and eighth grade students are finishing up their fall sports seasons; band, choir, and orchestra instruction are starting to focus on upcoming performances. It's great to see our students active and busy in the many opportunities provided by the Brookings School District.


MMS is nearing the end of our first nine weeks of school. Conference schedules sign-ups will be emailed out to families. Families will be able to schedule in-person or virtual conferences this year. Last year, we had 100% participation. Let's make it another year of 100% participation. Students are working on compiling a presentation to highlight their learning thus far during the school year. These conferences reinforce the school to home connection in your child's learning.

Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world. ~ Nelson Mandela
