Building An Outdoor Classroom, The Butterfly Project!
We are looking for sponsors to help us reach our goal for Phase 2! Our goal is to raise $15,000 to pay and install our steel frame butterfly. Bob Doster, our artist, has hand designed a unique butterfly memorial just for us. The very same artist that created the globe for the high school students at the main entrance. Once we have our funds, the memorial will be installed, the butterflies riveted on and the reminder for acceptance of all will stand.
Phase 2 is a large steel butterfly that will be placed on a concrete pad in the grassy area in front of our school. Each year the students will now paint a metal butterfly that will be adhered to this monument. This will be our own memorial that will grow each year showing our commitment to tolerance and acceptance of all. Click here to learn more!
The county has begun to use a program called Naviance. Naviance is a comprehensive college and career readiness solution that helps students align strengths and interests to postsecondary goals, improving student outcomes and connecting learning to life. Naviance can be accessed on our MRMS webpage under the Parents section and the UCPS Mobile App. You will need to stop by the front office with your ID to receive your parent code for access to this program. Should you have questions please contact your student’s grade level counselor or administration.
During the month of February, the students at Marvin Ridge Middle school took part in a Global Event in honor of this year’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Each Related Art class selected a country they wanted to explore. A team from each class studied many different aspects of that country, and created a presentation to share with the other Related Arts classes as the first event of the Olympics.
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.
