Our Principal's Connect Ed Message 05/14/2023

The Summer Education Experience registration is open and links for sign up can be found on our school and district website.  If you are interested in taking part in summer activities and programming, please sign up now!
The Surry County Health Dept will be at MAMS on Tuesday May 16th to conduct free athletic physicals for any current 6th-8th grade student-athlete.
To participate the parent portion of the physical packet must be filled out and returned to school by tomorrow, Monday May 15th. Athletic physical packets may be picked up in the front office or online under the school's athletic forms section.
Our transportation department is hard at work on next school year's bus routes.  We need information for transportation plans for all current K-11 students that ride a bus and those that don't ride but plan to ride next year. This week bus drivers will distribute a "yellow" paper to students with a QR code and link to complete a google form for our transportation department.  Parents, please be on the lookout for this information and complete the form if you haven't already done so.  Please act now to secure a bus seat for your child for the upcoming school year.  The link to this form will expire on June 16, 2023.  
Make sure that your child dresses appropriately for the weather this week if they are attending a field trip.  We will have approximate times for pickup of your child for 7th and 8th grade field trips that will return after school hours.  Please make every effort to pick your child up on time.  
Once again, students must be picked up in front of the school during afternoon dismissal.  Students are not allowed to be picked up behind the gym.  If you need to pick up your child early for an appointment or an emergency, check them out in the front office.  Additionally, if your child is going to walk from school, they must have signed permission that is given to our front office.  Thank you for your cooperation.  
Please check your grade level newsletters for information about upcoming field trips.
