Weekly Message for 9.26.19
What a wonderful last week we had! Students participated with full vigor in Spirit Week culminating in a tightly contested ROAR Assembly. The 8th grade did maintain the Spirit Stick but the 7th grade is right on their heels! In addition to Spirit Week, all students participated in Career Day, complete with job interviews and career explorations. What a sight to see all the students Dressed for Success and engaging with professionals from a variety of fields. A huge THANK YOU to all our parents who helped make Career Day a huge success!
All students received their 1st quarter report card, EOG/EOC Math scores from 2018-19 and an explanation of the new scoring. Check those bookbags!
Fall picture make-ups will be October 15th. All students who enrolled after August 13th, were absent on August 13th, did not like their pictures will be able to have their pictures taken on October 15th.

As off campus learning experiences ramp up, we want to remind families that when we plan and pay for trips (those with a fee), we base the cost on the number of students attending the trip. We are still required to cover the cost of a student who does not attend the trip. For this reason, we will not be able to refund the cost of field trips this school year. We appreciate your understanding.
Support a cool future art project for Moore Square students AND "Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle"...Keep sending in those plastic bottle caps!
LAST CALL: As our 2019-20 recruitment season approaches, we would like to add to our Moore Square Magnet Middle School website a place for prospective families to read about some of the wonderful things our parents and students have to say about our school. We invite you to share a positive testimonial by clicking the appropriate link below and complete the Google form. If you have shared a testimonial previously, you are welcome to submit again. If you have an area of concern, this is not the platform. PLEASE contact us so we can work to address it!
We would like a brief description--just a few sentences targeting a specific area of which you have been especially pleased. Examples could include a department, activity, or event, but you are not limited to these topics! We ask that you do not use specific names of teachers and/or staff in your testimonial.
The number of responses we receive will help determine whether we publish your testimonial on our website, but many positive testimonials will definitely speak volumes to our interested families.
Thank you very much for your positive feedback!
