Updates from Manassas Park Middle School - 12/14/2018

Week 16 - Choir Concerts and Interims!

What a great week! This week featured our band concerts, a trip to DC for our Semester 1 Civics classes, and a trip to the Nutcracker for the entire 6th grade!

If you have not checked on your child's grades to this point, please make sure to do so. Some work (such as IXLs) can be completed at home over break without any extra work or assistance from the teachers, while others may require contact with the teacher for more information to help you help your child earn the best grade possible. The most important thing is to make sure all work is completed and turned in - even turned in late there is value in the practice. All classes build on previous content taught, so completing work is most important, even if it is being completed late!

Next week will wrap up school for December, as well as feature the annual students vs staff basketball game on Wednesday and an opportunity for our performing arts groups (band and choir) to perform for their peers!

Check out our Band Concerts! They were wonderful!
