Good evening,

Due to testing, this week’s schedule has been altered. Please see the attached letter and schedule for the Standards of Learning Tests (SOL) and End of Course SOL Tests (EOC). Testing begins tomorrow. The schedule is also available on the calendar and for download at gomoody.com.

Please note: The Reading SOL test for grades 6 – 8 has a new format. All students participating in the Reading SOL will take the Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) version of the SOL test. In this format of the test, students will not be able to skip or go back to questions for review.  Once the student answers a question, they will move forward to the next question and will not have access to questions that have previously been answered. This format is similar to the NWEA test and the Math CAT, which have already been in use.

Attention 8th grade parents: Invitations to the 8th Grade Dance have been sent home with your student. The permission slip, information and links for signing up for volunteer opportunities can all be found on gomoody.com or gomoodypta.com. Permission slips are due no later than Friday, May 18.

That’s all for now. Let’s make it a great week!

8th Grade Dance Permission Slip

8th Grade Dance Information

May 2, 2018

Hard to believe but we have one month left till the 8th grade dance!

8th grade dance invitations went home with your student on Tuesday, May 1st.

The invitation is in a green envelope, so please ask your child to share this with you.  It has some very important information including the permission slip which will need to be returned to their 1st period teacher by Friday, May 18.

4 key points regarding the dance:

  • It is not too late to send in a monetary donation. Please consider sending a check in when you return the permission slip.  All money collected will be used to help cover the cost of entertainment, decorations and food.  Although there is no ticket price, a $5-20 donation is suggested and is tax-deductible.  Checks should be made payable to “Moody Middle School PTA” with “8th Grade Dance” and your child’s name in the memo section. Your cashed check serves as your receipt for tax purposes.
  • Please visit the link to the sign up genius to volunteer your time and/or refreshments for the dance. We are also looking for gift cards to be donated as prizes:


  • Because of security restrictions, we can only allow those adults in the school who are on the volunteer roster (even for pictures). Please make sure you have a volunteer form on file in the office.  The volunteer form can be found here:


These need to be submitted the week prior to the dance.

  • Lastly, this dance is one of the last fun opportunities the 8th graders have to be together. The members of the PTA dance committee have worked hard to provide an evening filled with dancing, food, games and prizes.  Please encourage your student to attend.  This dance does not require that they attend with a date, in fact, we are not promoting that they do so.

This information is also available on gomoodypta.com

This week follows a Day Two, Day One pattern. Monday, Wednesday and Friday periods 5, 6, 7, and 8 will meet. Tuesday and Thursday periods 1, 2, 3 and 4 will meet.

The final collection for Service as Action logs will be May 9th and 10th during APL. Remember that you must have 20 hours of service for the year. If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Cassada.

The PTA is celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week May 7-11. You can help! Send in a gift card—to any place, in any amount—and we’ll be drawing PTA teacher’s names to win a gift card every day. It’s one more way to say “thank you” to our teachers. Gift card donations may be dropped off in the office.

The month of May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. This is a great time to promote the benefits of physical activity. Moody students will complete their fitness testing in May. Encourage your Raider to strive to achieve the Moody Max Award – reaching the “Moody Max” in all five fitness tests.

SOL testing begins Monday, May 14th with period 4 testing. Please see the detailed calendar on gomoody.com for more information.

Come out to The Tin Pan on June 5th with the Moody Jazz Band and the Short Pump Jazz Band for a Relay for Life benefit concert. For more information, see the link attached to this message or gomoody.com. https://www.ticketfly.com/event/1686234-band-together-fight-cancer-richmond/
