important information about the 2021-22 school year
Dear Parents and Students,
We are excited about your return to in-person learning for the upcoming school year and continuing the call to LEAD at Moore Middle School! Planning is currently underway to provide quality and engaging instruction for all of our students in a face-to-face environment. Likewise, we have plans in place for many extracurricular events at the beginning of the school year to provide opportunities for our students to get involved!
Parents of rising 6th, 7th, 8th and Gear Up students should expect a phone call from their child’s new homeroom teacher in late July.
