Students of the Week

Keon Tyson, Class of 2028

Keon had a very unfortunate thing happen to him this past week, but instead of reacting in a negative way he used his self regulation skills and handled himself in an appropriate way and reached out for help! This is a big thing for him and he deserves to be recognized!! ~ Ms. Farjian

Shawn Lottman, Class of 2027

Student showed explementary leadership and service to the Trick-or-Treat Event. ~Ms. Duarte

Serenity Jackson, Class of 2027

Serenity has got to be one of the sweetest and most polite students I've ever had. She goes out of her way, daily, to help students around her (even if the student she's working with is a discipline issue for the teacher). She has this calming demeanor about her that is almost "motherly" and the students respond to her. She is friendly to everyone, caring, and loves helping when she can. There are not a lot of students like Serenity and her parents should be so proud! I adore having her in class and hope that other students can be more like Serenity when helping others. ~ Ms. Campbell

Red Ribbon Week Celebration

Red Ribbon Week was a success at MMS! Students did a great job finding their twin throughout campus.

MMS Athletics:

Athlete of the Week-Volleyball

Dixie Patterson

This athlete over the last few weeks has unknowingly stepped up and became a leader of our team. She has been working hard during practice and even harder during games. Her attitude and willingness to do what is asked of her without complaining is why Dixie Patterson is your athlete of the week!!!

Athlete of the Week-Football

Tian Wyche

He led the way in our 20-8 victory over Southside Middle this week. He outran the defense contributing three touchdowns to our effort. As a defensive player, he made several open-field tackles, putting an end to a successful Southside drive. The coaches are super excited to see him in our next game. Go Hawks!
