MRMS Families,

I hope everyone had a great break and that students were able to unwind from all the hard work that they have been putting in at school. In addition to our students, I want to recognize that our staff have been through a lot this year, and with Teacher Appreciation week coming up May 3rd-7th, I want to make sure to give our families the opportunity to recognize our teachers for their exceptional service. We hope to recognize all our educators that have made this year a success, including our Unified Arts teachers, core content teachers, and our Instructional Assistants.


We sent a survey to our staff to get some input around their favorites. Use the link to find your child's teacher's favorites: Link


Monday: Draw a picture of, or give your teacher(s) their favorite flower

Tuesday: Dress in your teacher's favorite color

Wednesday: Keep your teacher laughing! Tell them a funny joke!

Thursday: Get your teacher their favorite candy

Friday: Write a note or a letter to your teacher thanking them for their service


In partnership,

Adam O'Shea, Principal

Monomoy Middle School
