Flu Shot Clinics will be held at the following district locations:
Washington Middle School – Thursday, October 23, 2014 (3:00 – 7:00pm)
Capital High School – Monday, October 27, 2014 (3:00 – 7:00pm)
MMS News from Mrs. Wood
Next week is conference week. Students will be released at 11:05 with a “grab and go” lunch on Tuesday through Friday. At Marshall, our students lead their parent/guardian through a student-led conference. Please make sure you are scheduled for a conference at some time during the week and that you arrive with your student.
We will be hosting our Scholastic Book Fair during Conference Week! With something for everyone, you will want to be sure to check it out. There will also be “teacher bins” so you can donate books to our classroom libraries.
The Mustang Monster Dash 5K is on Saturday, October 25th at 3:00 pm. If you register by this Friday, the cost is only $25.00 per runner and includes a running shirt, bracelet and goodie bag. Registrations received after Friday will be $30.00 and no tee-shirt is guaranteed. In addition to the 5K, we will have a FREE kid’s dash, a DJ, prizes, trick-or-treating along the route, refreshments, and awards for best costumes. Register on active.com or fill out a brochure found in our front entry way. This will be the only 5K Marshall does this year, and the funds raised will help finance programs for our students. Again, register on active.com or fill out a brochure found in our entryway.
Our next sport’s season is almost here! Girls basketball starts on Monday, October 27th, and 7th and 8th grade girls who wish to come out must have a current sports physical and athletic packet on file in the front office. Packets are available now. The pay to play fee is $60.00, and waivers are available to our low income families.
The district is offering FREE flu shots for students and their families at two different locations and times. The first is October 23 from 3:00 – 7:00 pm at Washington Middle School’s small gym. The second is October 27 from 3:00 – 7:00 pm at Capital High School’s upstairs gym. This is a great opportunity to get yourselves flu protected for free for the winter months.
Please know that we are limiting the deliveries of messages and items to our classrooms during the school day. If you bring something for your student, we will leave it in the front office and let them know to pick it up during their lunch. Emergencies are, of course, an exception.
Finally, our Veteran’s Day Assembly is planned for 9:00 am on Monday, November 10th. We would like to cordially invite any current or retired military personnel to join us that morning for a celebration of the men and women who provide such great service to our country. Please plan to arrive and check in to the main office by 8:50 am.
