We had previously communicated with you about an informational meeting coming up related to the possibility of single gender classrooms in Grade 7 at MRMS next school year. After much discussion and consideration, we have made the decision to stop our exploration of this potential academic programming option for the 2017-2018 school year. This decision is based on issues of timing and the overall vision for the future of our school. With all of that said, the informational meeting for this topic for current sixth grade parents which was scheduled for February 23rd will no longer take place. We look forward to other exciting academic programming opportunities for our students in the future, so we encourage you to stay tuned for what's in store at MRMS. Questions about this topic may be directed to our principal, Dr. Jay Jones.

  •  Quote of the Month
    “It doesn’t matter if absences from school are excused or unexcused. They all represent lost time in the classroom and a lost opportunity to learn.”
    We urge parents to very carefully consider every potential absence from school. What matters less is whether or not the absence is excused. What is infinitely more important is the opportunity to learn, grow, and move toward one’s full potential, which is lost when a student is absent. Yes, every single day matters!
