  • Career Development Updates  

Happy Summer everyone!  Please take a minute to check out the updates on the Career Corner of the Square.  Thank you to all our volunteers this year who help bring the curriculum alive by making connections between the textbooks and the happenings of the world outside the school walls.  We had over 200 volunteers and 7000 student contacts!  These experiences are so important to our students and make the Moore Square community and experience strong!  

 

  • Yearbooks

Yearbooks have arrived and were distributed over the past week. If your student was absent or missed pickup, they may visit Mrs. Meyers in room 3313 during morning arrival or during 5th period. Questions? Contact Bethany Meyers at bmeyers@wcpss.net

 

  • Theater Arts News
    • Interested in auditioning for our fall musical, Into The Woods, Jr.? See the flyer for more information
    • The students here at Moore Square are incredibly talented and dedicated to our theater program. Even though our school doesn't have an auditorium, the students' enthusiasm and creativity turn our gym into a true performance space! The biggest challenge we face is amplifying student voices so the audience can hear their incredible talent. Our program is in need of an upgrade: not only to replace damaged systems but also to increase the number of systems we use to reflect the growth of the program.
