Congrats to Morgan Cole who placed 9th out of 55 at the South Central Middle School Cross Country Conference at EIU on Sept 21, 2023.
6th grade students at MMS recently participated in a gummy bear lab. They created a hypothesis stating which solution they thought would help the gummy bear grow the most (Sprite, salt water, sugar water, vinegar water, or plain water). They ran an experiment, analyzed their data, came to a conclusion, and had a lot of fun doing so!

Did you know Mattoon Middle School Student Council sponsors the education of Martha in Uganda?
Martha is the second in a sibling group of 5. Her mother passed away when she was young and her father passed away two years ago. Martha and her siblings were left with nothing, but luckily they were taken in by Kidron Valley Orphanage. When they are at Kidron they get free primary schooling, but that stops after 8th grade. Once they finish their primary school they need support to go to secondary school.
MMS Student Council plans to sponsor her for the remaining three years of her secondary school (high school). This is charging her life and giving her a shot for a better future!
If you have a child interested in being part of the MMS Student Council, applications are being accepted through the end of the week for 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students. They can find them in Schoology.
Reserve a spot in this DCFS-sanctioned 8-week parenting class now! Classes will be held on Tuesdays from September 12th to October 31st at the Mattoon Public Library from 5:00 - 6:15 p.m.
