MMS Students Attend Literature Festival!
On March 21st, students from Moberly Middle School attended the Children's Literature Festival hosted by the University of Central Missouri.
In order to attend the festival, the students had to read and pass quizzes on at least 6 of the nominee books. While at the festival, students attended author presentations and were able to have their personal books autographed.
Summer School Changes!
We are so excited about the changes that will be going on for our district this summer, and summer school is just around the corner!
Thanks to the Prop S bond issue, construction will be going on across the district at all campuses this summer, limiting the space available for summer school classes. A change to our approach to summer school is necessary this year, so we will not be able to offer our traditional summer school sessions. Additionally, we must minimize the number of students offered summer school.
To address these issues, summer school enrollment will be “by invitation only” for elementary and middle school this year. The high school will limit its class offerings to health class and credit recovery only.
If you have questions or concerns about these changes, please contact your building’s administrator.
