Updates from Manassas Park Middle School - 4/26/2019

Week 34 - Career Fair!

Today our Middle School Career Fair introduced many different careers to our students, showing the amazing variety of ways to earn a living in our area. Today's events featured over 50 different professionals introducing their work to our students, with some AWESOME conversations occurring in the gym. Check in and see what was your child's favorite - because I really enjoyed the conversations I had after the Career Fair. A HUGE thank you and GREAT JOB to Ms. Chiu for being the engine behind this career fair, as well as Ms. Fantahun in support. It was a great event!

Parents, if you are not familiar with the term juuling, I highly recommend attending the substance use prevention night on May 13th. (See flyer below) MPCS and MPPD will be discussing the most common substances students experiment in middle and high school. Recently there has been a major increase in the number of students who are experimenting with vaping and juuling, thinking it is a harmless way to have fun, when in fact they are taking in nicotine in similiar/greater quantities to smoking cigarettes. Come and learn the facts from the experts, then use that information to have important conversations about health and addiction with your children.

Teacher Appreciation Week!

May 6-10 is teacher appreciation week. Parents, we would LOVE for you to help contribute to the week's celebration of our amazing MPMS teachers by providing desserts for teachers on enjoy on Friday May 10. Please drop them off in the main office that morning and we will take care of the rest!

Thank you!

Wednesday was Administrative Professionals Day!
