Moody students and teachers are off to a great start. We would like to invite you to learn more about what to expect in your student’s classes this year by participating in our PTSA Back to School Night on Thursday, September 20. This event provides an opportunity to get involved with our Moody Raider PTSA and meet your child’s teachers. The evening will begin with a PTSA General Membership Meeting from 6:30-6:50 p.m. The remainder of the evening will proceed as described in the table attached. Your student should complete the table for you ahead of time by filling in the names of their teachers and the corresponding room numbers.

This is a reminder to all the parents to become members of the PTSA, as we are trying to achieve a 100% membership. Also, do consider making a direct donation to the Raider Fund as the funds are used to make improvements in the school and kids related activities. The form to be used to send in the payment can be found by clicking this link – Membership Raider Form. The PTSA will have a table set up before and after the Back To School Night to answer any questions you might have or to turn in payments for membership for the Raider fund.

Running late in the morning and don’t have time for breakfast? Tired of packing lunches already? See the attached breakfast and lunch menus for the month of September and make a purchase in the cafeteria.

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

Sunday Message 9/9

September 10, 2018

Good Evening Moody Raiders,

This is Principal Doss calling with your Sunday message.

What a great first week of school! We appreciate your patience with transportation and with the balancing of student schedules and class numbers.

Attached to this message you will find the Day 1/Day 2 calendar for the 2018-2019 school year. Students will always follow this calendar unless otherwise noted by an administrator.

The PTA will be collecting orders for their Fall Spirit Wear Sale through September 27. Please make sure to send in your completed order form and payment through your student’s APL teacher by this date. Order forms and pictures of spirit wear items can be found on www.gomoodypta.com.  Any questions or concerns can be directed to Jennifer Chance and Beth Strader at spiritwear@gomoody.com.

It is important that parents and guests observe all traffic and parking signs, even during sporting events after school hours. For the safety of our students and so emergency vehicles can access the playing fields and back parking lot, all cars parked in the fire lanes are subject to tickets by Henrico County Police. Please remember to always be courteous and not block the driveways of our neighbors’ homes. Cars blocking driveways can be ticketed and towed. Only drop students off on the sides of the school in the designated areas. Never use the front of the school or enter the bus ramp for drop-off purposes. Parents should expect increased enforcement of all traffic laws by Henrico County Police.

Thanks to all the parents and students that make Moody Middle School such a great place to learn! Looking forward to another great week. Have a good evening.

Day 1-Day 2 Calendar 2018-19

Fall Sports Tryouts

September 7, 2018

Sports tryout information for the fall season, including cuts, will be posted under athletics.  Please check there for updates.

Be Mindful of Peanut Allergies

August 31, 2018

Dear Parents,

At George H. Moody, we have students who have severe peanut/bean allergies.  These students must avoid all peanut/bean products, such as peanut butter crackers, packaged peanuts, etc.  This is the only way to prevent a life-threatening allergic reaction for these students.  We are asking for your assistance in providing a safe learning environment for all of our students.

The greatest potential for exposure to peanut/bean products is when the students are in school.  We are asking you to please be mindful of this when providing food items for your child to eat during snack time, field trips, school dances, or other activities that may occur before, during, or after school.  Please remind your child that the sharing of any food item is prohibited because of the potential risk of allergic reactions for the students who have these allergies.

Lunch is always served in the cafeteria and your child may bring peanut/bean products for lunch, since there is a designated peanut/bean table.  This plan will help maintain safety while allowing non-allergic classmates to enjoy peanut/bean products in a controlled environment.

We appreciate your support and cooperation.
