THE MYSTIC MIDDLE SCHOOL CUB CHRONICLES
THE PRINCIPALS' CORNER
Mr. Gregory Keith - Principal Mrs. Allison Hine - Assistant Principal
Dear Mystic Middle School Families,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Mystic Middle School!!! On behalf of the entire staff, we would like to offer a warm welcome to our new students and a wholehearted welcome back to our returning sixth, seventh, and eighth graders.
Please allow us to introduce the new members of our MMS staff: Dr. Lori Liguori (School Psychologist), Mrs. Lisa Babcock
(Special Education), Jessica Monahan (Art) and Stephanie Pellegrino (Grade 8 Science).
We have scheduled two special events for the start of the year to provide an opportunity to meet each other in person and open lines of communication between students, families and staff. First, if you are new to the district or an incoming fifth grader, our Meet and
Greet will be on August 30th at 1:45pm. At this time students will be able to meet their teachers, practice opening their lockers, and take a tour of their new classrooms
. On September 15th we will be holding a Back-to-School Night for all students, families, and staff to kick-off the year as a school community.
Student homeroom assignments for students in grades 6, 7, and 8 are provided to the students on Opening Day when they arrive at school. Student homeroom assignments for grade 5, and all other Welcome back letters, will be mailed home during the first week of August. Bus routes, food service information, and the district calendar can all be viewed on the Stonington Public School website, www.stoningtonschools.org. MMS’ suggested supply lists, PTO information, and Public Calendar may be accessed from our own MMS Website. Please take a moment to join the SPS_MMS Facebook Group, the MMS Twitter Page, and Remind101 right from the website.
Your student will be receiving a Student Agenda on Opening Day. It is used as an organizer and assignment track
er that the students will maintain. We ask that parents work collaboratively with the teachers and students in monitoring the proper use of the agenda to maximize student performance and further enhance communication between the home and school. Working together in this way, along with the use of PowerSchool and on-going communication, will prove to be a great way to help your student succeed in school. Information, your username, and password for the Parent Portal to PowerSchool will be provided for you in the Opening Day Packet that your student will bring home.
Here is the entire list of our important dates to start off the year:
8/30 - New to MMS and Gr 5 - Meet and Greet (1:45pm)
8/31 - Opening Day
9/5 - Labor Day - No School9/15 - Back-to-School Night (Times TBA)
We are all very excited about the 2016-2017 school year. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. For now, please enjoy the rest of your summer!!!!
