RESPECT, EXPLORE, ACHIEVE, LEAD
Never take for granted the days you have here on earth and live life to fullest! Thank you Mrs. Spillane for your #godsightings and believing in me! Forever loved and forever remembered.
I challenge all MSS faculty and staff to find your daily #godsightings. Please share those, with someone or everyone. They are all around us we just have to stop and look for them.
SPECIAL FACULTY MEETING
Dr. Thurman will be coming to speak to the faculty and staff about the new security measures for MSS and giving information about the upcoming millage vote.
Message from the Boss...
29 Instructional Days
Due to testing this week and all the other craziness of the week, I am extended Progress Reports to Friday, April 20th.
If you have them ready go ahead and send but all Progress Reports need to be sent home no later than Friday, April 20th.
No PLC's next week so that you can work on Progress Reports.
ID badges MUST be worn. If you do not have one please let me know and I will find some time for you to go to Central Office to have one made.
REWARDS AND RECOGNITION

Junior High North Top 6%-10% Performance $ 42,182.28
In total, the district earned $303,942.24!
LET ME CLARIFY, MSN is only receiving more money than us because they have more students than MSS. The dollar amount is based on student population.
REAL ROOM CHANGES
Starting Monday, all students will be given 3 days to return any discipline notices. If not returned, Mrs. Ashe will then notify the teacher who assigned the discipline notice by email and phone contact must be made to parent by the teacher.
Administration will make contact to parents as well of those we write discipline notices for and not returned.
Thank you for your understanding and I wholeheartedly feel this will help in discipline issues.
The Administrator that will check your PD will be the one that completed your observations this year. We will not begin to check out PD until after testing.
**This is just your heads up!
Let me know if you have any questions.
FIELD TRIP REMINDERS:
Teachers if you have a field trip coming up let the cafeteria know. This way they can make sure there is food available for emergency lunches, if needed.
IF they know that they will need lunches to let Mrs. Dianna know a approximate number needed AT LEAST three weeks BEFORE field trip so she can order food. The cafeteria will only send juice with field trips.
Chaperones: these are the parents that MUST pass the background check and are in charge of students. Mrs. Cheryl has the list of those parents. You CAN NOT approve a parent to be a chaperone until the background check has been cleared. Chaperones can ride the bus.
Volunteers: these are parents that go on the field trip but NOT in charge of students. They CAN NOT ride the bus. They take their own vehicle and met you there. They do not have to have a background check but it is recommended.
Let me know if you have any additional questions.
