Boys Winter Sports are Almost Here!

If your son would like to participate in Boys Basketball or Wrestling, their season is coming up!

All athletes must have a physical on file with the middle school AND complete concussion training for that school year. If your child previously participated in fall sports in 2018, their paperwork is still valid. Paperwork from previous school years is no longer valid.

Questions? Want to check if your son's paperwork is up to date?

Email Ms. Webb, our Athletic Director at

The last day for tryouts is Monday, January 28th!

Put these upcoming events at MPMS in your calendar!

Come check out the MPMS Book Fair! Feb 4-15!

During our Book Fair, February 4-15 during school hours, the Library Learning Commons is transformed into a book store! We'll receive a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level, and all purchases benefit our school!

Our purpose for the Book Fair is to give students a chance to choose books for the library, since students’ long-term reading habits increase when they are allowed to make their own choices about the books they read. The library receives books from the fair as our profit, and we are usually able to get all of the books that the students choose.

You can use the new online eCash feature to give your child money to spend at the Book Fair. You establish a limit, and your credit card is not charged until after your child makes their purchase. See the Book Fair Home Page for more information.

More information is available on the Book Fair Home Page

The schedule for class visits can be found on the calendar on the library's Canvas course
