Updates from Manassas Park Middle School - 4/5/2019

Week 31 - 4th Quarter Planning!

Fourth Quarter has begun - WOW! This is a time where students can be romanced by the improving weather outside as teachers work to complete teaching new material and begin to review for SOL tests in May. We will be working hard here at MPMS to finish the school year strong - maximizing every day with our students! Parents, please help us by ensuring that your child is here on time every day. Attendance is important for two big reasons - the reviews in SOL classes being conducted by teachers are focused on the areas each student needs to do well on the SOL, as well as non-SOL classes who are still teaching new things.

Please put the following SOL Testing dates into your calendar:

  • Math 6 and Geometry: May 21
  • Math 7, 8, and Algebra 1: May 22
  • Reading (all grades): May 24
  • Civics/Science 8: June 4
  • Math Reading Expedited Retakes: June 5-7
  • Civics/Science 8 Expedited Retakes: June 7


Two big things coming up in April at Middle School:

1. Spring Break will be April 13-22. Students will return to school on Tuesday, April 23.

2. On April 26th, the Middle School Career Fair is a HUGE event where all students will be able to meet many different parents, community members, and explore the many ways people earn a living as an adult. From technology specialist to taxidermist, oyster farmer to our goal is to showcase all kids of careers! If you would like to volunteer to discuss your line of work, please email Ms. Chiu at
