Start of 20-21 School Year
  • PHYSICALS - All incoming 7th and 8th graders must have a physical before they can participate in any sport.  For those of you that already have a physical, those will be good for two years.  Team App allows parents and athletes to stay informed of what is taking place with their sport.  Forms that explain the sign up process are available in the MS office. 
  • CROSS COUNTRY THIS COMING FALL - Mr. Goans will be one of the cross country coaches for next year.  If you are interested in going out again or trying cross country for the first time, please email and let him know!  He’d love to have you on the team!   
  • From Ms. DeMoss - If you are interested in being in CHOIR this year there will be a short audition in August during the first week of school. Ms. DeMoss will have you sing a couple of patterns and sing My Country ‘Tis of Thee. It shouldn’t take anymore than about 5 minutes. Once she determines if you passed the audition, she will get a list to Ms. Bibb and your schedule will be changed. If you are interested in trying out for choir next year, please email Ms. DeMoss and let her know. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to her.
