Greetings MMS Families,
Happy summer!! I want to congratulate each one of you on a successful school year. This has been a great year for us, and I want to thank you for your consistent support and collaboration. My second year as Principal of the Museum Magnet School has been a fulfilling and successful one. I have enjoyed working with you and your children, and I look forward to continuing this work with you for many years to come. In preparation for next school year, please read below and let us know if you have any questions.
Each student has a summer packet that is to be completed by the first day of school. I ask that you spread this work out over the summer, so that your child does not lose what they have learned over the next ten weeks. Please have your child read or read to your child for 20-30 minutes every day. This short amount of time spent on reading will prepare your child for the upcoming school year. We want all of our students to be successful, and reading will make that difference!
Kindergarten Packet 1
and Packet 2
3rd & 4th Grade
Your child’s teacher has created a supply list so that you have plenty of time to gather your school supplies for September. This list is below, and will be sent home on the last day of school, and will be redistributed at the end of August.
The Museum Magnet School believes that wearing a uniform helps our students feel prepared and ready to learn. That said, we are continuing with our uniform policy. Our uniform for ALL students grades PreK-8 is below.
grey, pink or light blue collared polo shirt
khaki/beige or navy blue bottoms.
Cell Phone Policy
Our cell phone policy will remain the same. Students will have the opportunity to check their cell phone in at the beginning of the day. If we see a cell phone out, we will confiscate it and ask that a parent picks it up. This policy is in place to ensure that our students are focused on their studies, and not on their cell phones. If you child needs to reach you or you need to reach your child, the school phones may be used.
Check the Mail
Damaris will be sending informational packets out in August. Please check your mail to ensure that you have all of the information you will need.
Again, thank you for all of your support. As always, my door is open to you, so feel free to reach out with questions or concerns. Enjoy your well-deserved summer!
All my best,
Principal, Museum Magnet School – P.S. 191
