Hawkeye: Parent Edition

Monrovia Middle - A Tradition of Excellence - Est 1997

Week of October 12, 2015

MMS Hawk Parents,

I hope that everyone was able to relax and Sharpen the Saw over the Fall Break. We begin our second nine weeks on Monday. I want to thank you for subscribing to Remind. We hope that this form of communication will allow us to reconnect.

I plan to send these newsletters every two weeks to keep you informed of what is happening in and at your child's middle school. I value feedback on what you may like to see in the newsletter. Please use the subject: Hawkeye Parent Edition and I will see what can be done to include feedback requests in future editions.

Below is a preview to a special report aired on CNN last week on Being 13 and the impact of social media. I was able to find it going to cnngo and receiving a code to be able to watch it on an Apple TV. I want to warn everyone, that the show does contain profanity and content that may make some uncomfortable. Watching it may be time well spent if you have a teenager or are able to see the teen years on the horizon.

I wish you a great week.


Mr. Thompson
