Good evening Moody Raiders. I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. Here is your Sunday message.

This is a reminder that the 3rd nine weeks ends Friday, April 2. Let’s encourage our Raiders to stay focused and work hard to finish the marking period.

Friday, April 2 is a half day of school ending at 11:30AM. The following week, April 5-9, is spring break.

Moody’s teachers and staff would like to thank those who donated tissues to the PTSA tissue drive. With pollen already starting to surface, dealing with springtime allergies will be a little bit easier because of you. Thank you!

What do you think about your child’s school and Henrico County Public Schools? As a HCPS parent or guardian, your views are important! Please take a few minutes to tell us about your perspectives and experiences. The link to take the survey is included in your email. You have until April 2 to complete it and your responses are confidential. Upon completing the survey, parents and guardians can choose to be entered in a drawing for prizes. Make your voice heard in 2021. Thank you for your help! https://henricoschools.us/surveys/

Do you want to be more involved in Moody Middle School? The PTSA is looking for parents to fill some board positions for the 2021-2022 school year. Please contact the PTSA president, Maha Chandran, at ptapresidentmms@gmail.com, or another current board members for more information.

Raiders, as we head toward the end of another marking period remember that “your attitude determines your direction.” Stay positive, thank you for listening, and have a good evening.

Good evening Raider Family. Here is your Sunday message.

We are so excited to welcome ALL in-person learners to the building tomorrow! If you have a student who is returning to in-person learning tomorrow, please remember a few things:

*Always perform the “Health Screening” self-check before leaving for school.

*Make sure you wear a mask to school. This is MANDATORY! A 2-ply mask must cover your nose/mouth. Per HCPS safety regulations, gaiters are not allowed.

*Be sure to bring your fully charged computer, computer charger, and headphones/earbuds with you to school.

Need a refresher on car rider drop-off and pick-up procedures? Can’t remember where a classroom is located? Check out the maps attached to your email for more details.

Remember, every Wednesday ALL students will remain at home. Students will virtually attend Advisory only. In order to be counted present for the day, students must check-in with the Advisory teacher.

Have a question about an assignment? Need some extra help? Wellness Wednesday is a great time for students to meet virtually with a teacher! Each department has specific office hours. See your email for more information.

Teacher Office Hour Schedule:

Math, Social Studies, PE  & CTE: 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM

English, Science, World Languages  & Electives: 10:30 AM 12:00 PM

Interested in playing a spring sport? Tryouts start April 13 for baseball, boys’ tennis, girls’ soccer, softball, and track and field (boys and girls). You must have an updated physical dated after May 1, 2020 on the HCPS Physical Card. Academic eligibility will be different this year. Students will need to pass all four core classes at the end of the third marking period. More information is on gomoody.com. Click extracurricular and then athletics.
