Student of the Week

Alexandra Wilson, Class of 2026

"She always goes above and beyond in her school work and in support of those around her. Alex has a positive attitude that is contagious and she uses her leadership skills to empower her fellow students." ~ Ms. Crumrine

Student IDs

Last week we mentioned that students should have their ID on them before they enter the building. Unfortunately, we have over 100 students a day that forget their ID. As result, these students are waiting in line to receive a temporary ID. Please remind your student to bring their ID from home so they do not miss instructional time during 1st period.


Students are required to purchase an ID for $5 once they receive three temporary IDs. Please support our school with this safety procedure.

Student Flu Shots

The flu vaccine clinic will take place on October 19, 2021. Students that have turned in a consent form last week will be allowed to receive a free flu shot.

Students will take their yearbook photos on October 25th and 26th. The pictures will be taken during their Gym and Health classes this year due to the auditorium being used for the upcoming musical. Students can order their pictures online.

Science Fair Club

Does your student love science? If so, encourage your child to compete this year at Mandarin Middle School Science Fair. For more information, attend the meeting on Wednesdays at 8:30 am in room 223.
