Wisconsin Students in Grades 3-8 and 10 will be participating in the Wisconsin Forward Exam assessment over the next several weeks. Your child’s classroom teacher will be sharing more information regarding specific testing dates.
The Wisconsin Forward Exam assesses students in the areas of English Language Arts, Math, and for grades 4 and 8 Science and Social Studies. It is very important that your son or daughter be in school . Students not in school on the scheduled testing days will be scheduled for a makeup test prior to the close of the testing window.
The Forward Exam assessment measures the knowledge and skills a student should have acquired by the beginning of the test window at each grade level. A student’s performance on this assessment will not affect the student’s grades. Please encourage your son or daughter to take the test seriously and do the best they can.
You can help your child show what they know by assuring they get a good nights sleep before taking the Forward assessment, as well as having a healthy breakfast! As always, breakfast will be offered at school starting at 7:30!

Weather Related Safety Week
During the week of April 12-16, MMS Students will be participating in a variety of safety drills. These drills may include a fire drill, an administrative hold drill, a lockdown drill and a tornado drill. The Statewide tornado drill has been scheduled for April 15th at 1:45pm.
We appreciate the opportunity to practice these drills so that students are prepared in the event that an actual emergency would occur!
While fashions change, the reason for being in school does not. With warmer weather approaching, we thought it was a good opportunity to review dress code expectations for our students.
Students should consider the following questions when dressing for school (The appropriate answer is in parenthesis.):
· Does my clothing expose too much? (No)
· Does my clothing advertise something that is prohibited to minors? (No)
· Are there obscene, profane, drug-related, gang-related, or inflammatory messages on my clothing? (No)
· Am I dressed appropriately for the weather? (Yes)
· Do I feel comfortable with my appearance? (Yes)
If a student has selected a manner of appearance that is beyond mere freedom of expression and disrupts the educational process or presents risk to themselves or others, they may be removed from the educational setting and asked to change.
The following styles or manners of dress are prohibited (but are not limited to):
Outer wear: hats or headgear, swimsuits, bathrobes, pajamas or other items designed for private use, togas, leotards or spandex type clothing unless they are properly covered by another outer garment. (may be allowed on specified Spirit Days.)
1) Straps that are at least one (1) inch wide
2) All undergarments covered
3) Necklines that keep cleavage covered
4) Length of shirts that cover the midriff—NO exposed hips, midriffs, or waists.
5) No shirt can display words or symbols that reference alcohol, tobacco products, drugs, vulgar, obscene, violent or demeaning messages, or products that target an adult age-group market.
1) Mid-thigh length or longer—Short shorts and mini-skirts are not appropriate. (when hands are held relaxed to the student’s side, hems should be at or past the tips of the student’s longest finger.)
2) Above the hips with no undergarments showing.
3) Free of holes or tears above mid-thigh.
