Huge Congratulations to our students of the month: Addison Garrett, Karli Veatch, Talis Hazelwood, and Keith Miles!
Parents, it is imperative that students charge their Chromebooks each night. We have so many students coming to school without a charged Chromebook. We do not have enough outlets in our classrooms to allow all students to charge them during the day. We need your assistance in making sure students charge them each day when they get home.
Announcements from Marion County Middle Youth Service Center
Families who want to sign up for Holiday assistance (Angel Tree) need to do so through Central Kentucky Community Action Council. We will receive your request here at MCMS Youth Service Center through their agency.
Students in Mrs. Wood and Mr. Vance's second period classes have been selected to complete the Youth Risk Behavior Survey administered by the Kentucky Department of Education. Students taking the survey have a permission form for participation. You only need to return the form if you DO NOT want your child to be involved with the survey. It will be given November 17th and 18th.
