Project Lit Bookshopping!
On March 20, 21, 22, in partnership with Scholastic, MMS scholars were able to 'Book Shop'
for a free book to add to their home library. This is the 3rd opportunity that scholars have had to 'Book Shop', there will also be opportunities in both April and May to add to their home libraries. We encourage parents/guardians to ask scholars about the book they select and remind scholars that they should be reading 30 minutes independently each school-night.

Step Benchmarks for Reading Practice and had significant achievement in passing iReady MyPath lessons. The Ladies' Volleyball Team was also celebrated for their teamwork and successful season.
