MTRS Student and Family Update

12/4/20

Dear Students and Families,


I hope all of you had a wonderful and safe few days last week, it was nice to take a break from screens for a while and spend some time outdoors! As our COVID-19 numbers increase across the state, I want to remind everyone of the importance of implementing the “Fab Four”–wash your hands; wear your mask; practice social distancing; and stay home when you're not well. Implementation of the Fab Four will help all of us stay healthy and safe!

Wednesday

Wednesday, December 9 is a late start day. Below is the schedule:

MTRS Families: feedback requested

As part of our Trailblazer redesign model at MTRS, caregivers--we need YOUR feedback! Please take a few moments to take this brief survey. This information is an important piece of our grant work which will be used by the MTRS Mass IDEAS Grant Team to make adjustments to our redesign plan and the ways in which we support and engage caregivers. Thank you in advance! Our communications & connections survey will close on Sunday, Dec. 6: https://forms.gle/jcLQ76AjhLHRwCGk9

Middle School Student Council

The MS STUCO is organizing a card sending event during the month of December. Students who would like to participate (optional) will send one card to another student and receive one in the mail (students who would rather email can also do that). During the first week of December, STUCO advisor Ms. Rutz will match students; students will also receive a card in the mail. If you have any questions please email Ms. Rutz: srutz@mtrsd.org
