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.
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 (email@example.com), with any questions.

The Marvin Ridge Middle School Drama Club always has a great time working on productions! To make each production successful, actors and crew members work together, putting in long hours of tech and rehearsal to make each show come to life. With every production, students learn new skills, such as teamwork, public speaking, leadership, and the ability to improvise.

The sixth grade at MRMS had an adventurous Halloween this school year, as it was spent at Camp Thunderbird! Students went to this outdoor learning center to discover ecosystems of various fauna and flora, and participated in group dynamic activities. These activities allowed students to interact with nature in an outdoor setting and gain a better appreciation for the world around them.
