  • Pretzel Day is Back

    Pretzel sales will be on Thursday, October 12th, Friday, October 13th, Monday, October 16th, and Tuesday, October 17th. Pretzel day, when you receive the pretzels, is on Thursday, October 19th.

    Pretzels cost 8 dollars and include one dip with each pretzel order. The pretzels come as 5 linked and baked together, they can not be sold as a single pretzels. So you are buying a pack of 5 pretzels and a dip for 8 dollars. We will not be selling individual pretzels.

    The dip flavors are Mustard, Nacho cheese, Cheddar cheese, Cinnamon, Chocolate, Buttercream, and Pumpkin Spice. Every pretzel order comes with one dip for the 8 dollars, but you can buy extra dips for a dollar each.

    Pretzels will be sold in the mornings before school starts by the pit.  As you come in stop by the pit and get your pretzels ordered. They’re a delicious treat! You can buy them for yourself and to enjoy with your friends and family.

  • 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:
