On this Thursday, February 4 and Friday, February 5, Marvin Ridge Middle School will be participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring. This national event, which takes place during the weeks before and after the NFL's big game, is aimed at making a positive impact upon hunger and homelessness. Specifically, our effort is aimed at benefiting the local Union County homeless shelter. We will be utilizing small red buckets to collect as much change as possible from kids getting out of vehicles in the car rider line and from students getting off of the bus on Thursday and Friday mornings. So if you have some loose change in your car's console, in a jar on your dresser, or anywhere else at your house, we're hoping that you'd be willing to donate some of it in this effort to stem the tide of hunger and homelessness right here in our home county. We look forward to teaming up with everyone in the car rider line and at the bus lot on Thursday and Friday.
Please note that February 15, originally scheduled as a teacher workday, is now scheduled as a regular school day for students to make-up for the inclement weather day on January 22.
ATTENTION PARENTS OF CURRENT SIXTH GRADE STUDENTS! SAVE THE DATE!
On February 24th at 7:00 p.m. in the Marvin Ridge Middle School Pit, Dr. Jones will be leading an informational meeting aimed at equipping current sixth grade parents with knowledge of a new initiative which we aspire to implement in the 2016-2017 school year. This initiative is single gender classrooms in Grade 7 for Math and Language Arts. Students will not be required to be placed in one of these classrooms. In fact, we won’t even implement the single gender classrooms unless there is an adequate level of interest from our families. We encourage you parents of current sixth grade students to come out to learn about this potential option for your child in Grade 7 next year. Reminders of this event will follow via a flyer and an automated telephone call. In the meantime, please contact Dr. Jones if you have any questions.
It has come to the attention of UCPS Technology Services that some student Chromebook devices throughout the district are asking for a device ID. The device ID 67989371 may be entered if you encounter this situation.
