REALIGNMENT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM MR. FERGUSON
Have you checked to see if your student is affected by realignment? This week, to the best of our ability, we have sent letters home with all students that are being reassigned to a different school next year. As of today every student that is being reassigned to Piedmont Middle, Piedmont High, Sun Valley Middle, and Sun Valley High had the opportunity to meet both administration and counseling representatives from those schools.
I highly encourage every parent to check to see if your child is affected by realignment.
If you are affected by realignment you can also check to see if your child qualifies for grandfathering which means they could stay at their current school if the parent elects. For information on realignment and grandfathering please go to the UCPS website and click Realignment 2018. I walked every student through the website this morning so they can be a support to you in this process.
The deadline to grandfather is April 23rd.
If you have questions about this process please feel free to call HSA@MMS and we will be glad to support you in any way. If you need a laptop and internet access we can support you with that need as well. Just come to the front office and ask for support.

HSA@MMS held its annual Career Day on Wednesday, March 7th, 2018. Over sixty professionals were greeted in the media center by our staff before being led to their presentation areas by our beta club students. Our redhawk scholars were asked to dress in "professional attire" as though they would be attending an interview and they certainly rose to the occasion. Professionals in attendance included: professional football players, beauticians, therapists, FBI agents, police officers, SWAT team, engineers, flight attendants, ROTC, and more!
On March 13, more than a dozen Health Sciences Academy at Monroe Middle students proudly wore lab coats as they patiently stood next to brightly colored trifold poster boards in the school’s gymnasium. It was the middle school’s science fair, and for an hour, the students expertly fielded questions about their projects from a panel of judges that included City of Monroe Mayor Bobby Kilgore, Union County Board of Commissioners Vice Chairman Richard Helms, Atrium Health Union President Mike Lutes and more.
On Friday February 16th, the Parent Council of HSA@MMS put on an unforgettable Multicultural Celebration featuring the East Elementary Step Team, A Hispanic Dance Troupe, and The Monroe High School Marching Band aka "The Red Storm." The gymnasium was packed with an audience ready to see the big show. All performers were unbelievably impressive and truly talented. It was obvious that they had practiced and were well prepared for the big event. The Hispanic Dancers wore traditional costumes and even invited members of the audience to join in on the dance with their last performance of the evening. Most of the band members were former students of MMS and the East Union Eagles are our future talented Redhawks.
