    EOG Proctors Needed!

    Attention ALL Marvin Ridge parents! We quite frequently hear Marvin Ridge parents saying, “Let me know if I can help in any way at the school.” Now is the time when we need you and will take you up on that offer, folks! We are in need of volunteer proctors and hall monitors for end of year testing. State guidelines dictate the need for us to provide proctors in several different areas on each day of testing in late May and early June. We really need you to do this! If you can commit to just one morning…great! If you can commit to multiple mornings…even better! The bottom line is that this is an “all hands on deck” need.We thank you in advance for signing up for at least one of the many necessary volunteer slots. You’ll find the details of testing and sign-up below. Please contact MRMS assistant principal and testing coordinator, Mrs. Marni Menkin (marni.menkin@ucps.k12.nc.us), with any questions.

  • According to Carolina School Hub, Marvin Ridge Middle School is ranked #5 out of 133 middle schools in the Charlotte metro region and #11 out of 700 middle schools in the state. There are just two traditional/non-charter/non-magnet schools in the Charlotte metro area which rank above us, and only three traditional/non-charter/non-magnet schools in the state which rank above us. WOW! Everyone on this team is to be commended for that stellar news. Here’s a link with the full rankings:http://www.carolinaschoolhub.com/best-middle-schools-charlotte-nc.cfm.

  • QUOTE OF THE MONTH
     
    “Even as kids reach adolescence, they need more than ever for us to watch over them. Adolescence is not about letting go. It's about hanging on during a very bumpy ride.”
     
    Conventional wisdom sometimes says that in the name of promoting independence, we need to let go and allow our middle school-aged children the space that they need to become independent thinkers and doers. The point that this quote makes, though, is that the adolescent years are not easy and not comfortable. Our children are experiencing physical, mental, and emotional challenges with which they’ve never dealt in their lives. It’s a time when many of them just want to be left alone, but as parents, mentors, and teachers, it’s a time when we need to be there for them to guide them at this critical juncture in their lives. The bottom line is that they need to know and experience our love and care through guiding words and actions with which they may not always agree. Keep the faith, and fight the good fight…this is when our kids really need us!
