MMS Environmental Club

Continue dropping off newspapers in the front office or room E113 until the end of September. Our goal is to kill weeds organically around our school garden.

MMS Art Club

Art club is in need of your help. We are learning about rococo art, and are creating powdered wigs. We are reaching out for donations of cotton balls and toilet paper rolls, only the cardboard roll not with all the paper, for our project. You can drop donations off at Mr. Adams’ art room B118 anytime during the school day. We thank you for your patronage, as we look to realize our inner Marie Antoinettes.
