all pro dad All Pro Dads
The next meeting of All Pro Dads will be on Thursday, March 8 at 7:00am. This is a great opportunity for middle school dads and kids to meet in the MS cafetorium for a quick, before-school breakfast and a 45-minute program on fatherhood and family topics. Please RSVP here with your breakfast order by Saturday, March 3. Please be prepared to pay in cash ($3 per meal) on the morning of the breakfast. Bojangles breakfast choices are: sausage biscuit, spicy chicken biscuit, or BoBerry biscuit, and coffee, water and OJ.

5th-7th Grade MAP Testing
Students in 5th, 6th, and 7th grades will be testing the mornings of Tuesday, March 13 and Wednesday, March 14. We are asking for your help in ensuring your child gets a good night's sleep, eats a healthy breakfast, and is on time for school each morning as we will begin testing by 8:15am. Please remind your child to take the test seriously and to do his/her best work. The MAP is an online test and therefore your student's iPad is essential in order to complete the test. Please make sure that your student's iPad is fully charged and that your child brings his/her iPad to school both days. We do not have enough loaners to provide to students who forget their iPads.

As always, we appreciate your partnership with us in your child's education. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Graham at
