Mullica Middle News

Week of October 29, 2018

Dear Mullica Middle Staff

Thank you! I can't sufficiently express my gratitude toward my amazing staff. You have been patient and understanding as we worked through the glitches with SGOs and PDPs. You have read and responded to my requests for meetings and you have supported each other through this hectic time.

With November right around the corner, I'm looking forward to getting into classrooms more and remind you to let me know when you are doing something out of the ordinary or want to have an extra audience member for your students.


Have a spooktacular week!

Mandatory Grade Level Meetings Monday!

Coyote Chronicle Newsletter

URGENT!! Please submit these ASAP


Please remember to submit your articles and pictures for the Coyote Chronicle. I can organize this in several ways; by subject, grade level, teacher etc. Last month, there weren’t any submissions for special areas, since this is one of the highlights of the kid’s day I think they would love to have these classes included. If you didn’t send anything last month, and even if you did, please send something for this month.

Please use the Google form below for submissions to the October Edition.

All teachers who already have their summative scores for the 2017-18 school year and new to Mullica teachers need to have their PDP completed and approved by the end of the day on October 29th. If you have a mSGP for the 2017-18 school year, you have 25 days from the date you receive your summative score to complete your PDP and have it approved. The district has not yet received these scores. I will keep you informed during this process.
