Good Evening Raider Families,

Are you looking for a great and unique gift to give your child? How about the gift of travel and a “Belize Adventure” of a lifetime? Your student has the opportunity to take a FUN and EDUCATIONAL trip to Belize and Guatemala with his/her friends/classmates March 30-April 5, 2019. To find out more information, please attend the informational meeting Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. in room 218.

This month, the PTSA would like to focus on how thankful we are for the teachers and staff at Moody Middle School. Keeping with the theme of Thanksgiving, we would like to ask for two easy favors this month. To find out how you can help by bringing in a donated snack and a thoughtful note, click on the Sign-Up Genius below. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0d4fa4ad2aa7f58-mmsptsa2

All remaining, in-stock spirit wear is now for sale. Please see the PTSA Facebook page or the website for the link.  If you sign up for a purchase, please send your money to the school office the next day. Send payment in an envelope marked “Spirit Wear” with your Raider’s name on it. Your item will come home the day after the money is received. This will be your last opportunity to purchase Spirit Wear until later in the year.

Have a great week!

Sunday Message 11/4

November 5, 2018
Good evening Raider families,

It’s not too late…the Scholastic Book Fair is here through November 6. The fair will be open Tuesday during our parent visitation. You’ll have an opportunity to buy books for teachers from the teachers’ wish lists, and support our school library program at the same time.

Don’t forget…Tuesday, November 6 is a student holiday. When students return to school Wednesday, they will follow a Day One schedule.

What does the PTSA “do?” The PTSA is very active at Moody Middle School! They provide agendas, instructional programs, offer educational support, and other classroom needs. The PTSA plans dances for all students in the fall and the spring. They also host a big dance for the 8th graders at the end of the school year. Hospitality events for the entire staff occur monthly and at other times throughout the year. These awesome events are just a few of the ways Moody’s PTSA helps the school. As with everything, there are costs involved. This is where YOU can help. Donations and memberships are way down from last year’s numbers. In order to continue to provide all the above (and then some) they need your help. The Raider Fund is the PTSA’s only fundraiser. Gone are the days of selling magazines, wrapping paper, or nuts. If you haven’t already done so, please consider making a donation to the Moody Middle School Raider Fund. Any amount is greatly appreciated! See the link, attached to the email, for the form. Thank you!


Attention parents of 8th grade students: If your child is planning to apply to a specialty center, please read the attached information regarding Moody Middle School’s information sessions, specialty center information, and timeline. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s 8th grade counselor.

Have a great week!

Using Common Sense

October 10, 2018

Common Sense Media

Media and technology are at the very center of all our lives today — especially our children’s.  Kids today spend over 50 hours of screen time every week. The media content they consume and create has a profound impact on their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.  Learning how to use media and technology wisely is an essential skill for life and learning in the 21st century. But parents, teachers, and policymakers struggle to keep up with the rapidly changing digital world in which our children live and learn.  Now more than ever, they need a trusted guide to help them navigate a world where change is the only constant.

Common Sense Media helps families make smart media choices. We offer the largest, most trusted library of independent age-based and educational ratings and reviews for movies, games, apps, TV shows, websites, books, and music. Our Parent Concerns and Parent Blog help families understand and navigate the problems and possibilities of raising children in the digital age.

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.
