All Moody Band students traveled to Glen Allen High School on Thursday evening, March 14th, to perform in the District I State Band Assessment Performance.  This is the culminating event of the year after the most rigorous period of instruction.  Moody was the only school to enter three different band levels in the event;  Beginning (6th grade),  Intermediate (7th grade), and Advanced (8th grade).  Band students learned how important it is to work as a team to produce outstanding results.

All three bands received straight SUPERIOR RATINGS!!!  The best possible ratings!  This is a wonderful accomplishment for our young musicians.  Great job, Raiders!

Congratulations to the Moody PE Department! They received the Active RVA Award from the Richmond Sports Backers as an initiative to promote fitness in the Richmond area. To receive this award, a school must show it has made fitness part of its culture through programs and infrastructure, and show measurable results in increasing physical activity among its students, staff and local community. Way to go Moody PE!

Reminder to all 8th grade parents…We are rolling out the red carpet for the 8th grade dance on June 7th and the PTSA needs your help!  We are asking for monetary donations to help make our 8th graders feel like stars. You may send in a check, made out to Moody Middle School PTSA, to your child’s APL teacher through March 26th.  You should have received a “Save the Date” with additional information. If you have any questions, please contact the PTSA.

Spring sports starts on Tuesday, March 19th after school.  Anyone interested in trying out must have an up to date physical that is dated after May 1, 2018.  Come prepared for any and all weather conditions. Tryouts will be outside.

Moody PTSA relies on the generosity of our wonderful parents to support all our events and resources for your children.

You can also find this form at  http://gomoodypta.com. Thank you to for your help.

Eighth grade students will participate in the Writing SOL Tuesday, March 19th and  Friday, March 22nd. Please see the attached letter for more information.


Last Saturday our Moody History Day Champions competed at John Tyler Community College at the District History Day competition. We are so proud of every student as they all completed a research project and presented their findings to a panel of judges made up by college professors and museum professionals. Even though the competition was fierce, Kayla L., Jillian T., Anushree S., and Ally L. all won first place and will be advancing to the state competition in April. Good luck girls!

Attention 8th grade parents…we are rolling out the red carpet for the 8th grade dance!  It will be held on June 7th and the PTSA needs your help. Please consider making a donation between $5 and $25 so we can help make our 8th graders feel like stars.   Your child’s APL teacher will be collecting donations through March 26th and a “Save the Date” flyer with more information will be coming home this week.


The 8th grade “Promotion and Recognition Assembly” will be held Tuesday, June 11th at 7PM in the Hermitage High School auditorium.

“The past is your lesson. The present is your gift. The future is your motivation.” Raiders, learn from your lessons and let it be a catalyst for your motivation. Have a great week!
