Updates from Manassas Park Middle School - 10/19/2018

Week 8 Complete!

The first marking period is almost complete. October 30th is the end of first marking period, meaning next week is the last full week for students to turn in work for this report card. Please check PowerSchool for updated grades and help your children get the best report card grades possible!

You can remind them - my goal is for ALL students to make A/B honor roll (or better!)

This starts by turning in EVERY assignment - as 50% is MUCH better than a 0%!! There is a big difference between a 50% and a 0% for not turning something in!

Also, this week we had our first choir concert (go 7th and 8th grade choirs!) as well as hosted a Special Olympics for our area, featuring 9 of our own Middle School student athletes competing. Pictures to follow!

Multicultural Night is Coming - Can you help us?

Multicultural night at Manassas Park Middle School is a very special evening that celebrates the diversity of all students who attend Manassas Park. Our school is blessed to represent a community with a wide range of life experiences from many different cultures all over the world.

This year's multicultural night will be November 29 at 6 pm.

In order to help create the best celebration of the diversity of our community, the multicultural night planning committee needs your help! We would like to have a collection of photographs of cultural identity to put up as a slide show throughout the school.

If you have (or can take) photographs that show your culture and identity, or are from travels around the world, please share them using the link below! Additionally, we will be sending home intent forms in November to invite families to participate and share their culture with us at multicultural night.

We can't wait to show off MP's diversity and range of cultures found in our community!

Need School Supplies? See Ms. Salas!

Our school was selected to be the recipient of the 2018/2019 school supply give away. We would like to give a big thank you to Cathy Vetal & Novant Health Prince William Medical Center for their incredible generosity. If your child is in need of school supplies, tell them to stop by Ms. Salas’s office.

Lost and Found This Week!

The lost and found has gotten to the point where we are now storing unclaimed items. If your child is missing an item, please have them check with the main office or get a pass to see Ms. Stone's class in room 1300 during 4th block.

If these items below are yours, please claim it in the main office!

If items go two weeks without being claimed they will be donated or discarded.
