*Moore Art Club- “cooler than a mountain cat with laser eyes”!  Everyone is welcome!  We’ll be working on art techniques and projects not covered in art class to expand our skills and exploration of media.  Students can also use this time and space to work on personal art projects.  We’ll be meeting tomorrow in Room 200 from 3:10-4:15 PM.


*If you’re an 8th grader who’s planning on attending East High School and might be interested in applying for Student Council, applications are available in the main office or from Mr. Ruisinger and need to be returned to the office or to the East office by Friday, February 9th.


*It’s a Moore Middle School logo contest!  Any student, staff member, parent or community member can submit a design, but there are some requirements! The design must easily fit on an 8×10 piece of paper.  You must include the colors purple and black with optional colors being white, silver or gray- NO MORE THAN 3 colors please!  Text could include either Moore Middle School or Moore Mountains Lions.  Your imagery could be a mountain lion or maybe a mountain lion’s paw, face, or tail.  Designs should be clean, sharp, and simple.  ALL GOOGLE IMAGES are copyrighted and can’t be used!

You can turn in your printed designs to the main office by 3:00 PM Monday, February 5th. Images of the finalists will be posted at Parent/Teacher Conferences near the lunchroom.  A student vote will take place during school at a later time.  Winners will learn how their draft goes on to become a T-shirt design.  Those logos will be used for apparel items to be sold in March!


*High school enrollment is right around the corner for 8th grade students!  An important component in the transition process is the informational meetings at the six LPS high schools in January.  These meetings are designed to welcome parents and students into the high school and meet with counselors and instructional staff to learn about the opportunities available at that school.  Since students entering ninth grade may choose the high school they want to attend in LPS, these meetings have been scheduled to give you the opportunity to attend more than one high school meeting before the February 2nd deadline for submitting the High School Choice form.


The schedule for the informational meetings is:

          Today     Northeast High School          6:30 PM



A letter was sent home detailing this information and included a High School Choice form.  This form must be filled out and returned to the Moore office or Student Services at LPSDO if you want to attend a high school that is outside of your attendance area. The deadline has been moved to February 2nd, 2018.  If you have further questions regarding information nights, please call the appropriate high school’s counseling center.


*The LPS Oral Spelling Bee will be Saturday, February 10, 2018 at Culler Middle School.  The Spelling Bee is open to students in grades 5-8.  More information is available in the main office or from your English teacher.  Information is also available in the Parent Center on the LPS website.


*Moore Middle School is collecting Box Tops 4 Education!  You can drop them off by the robot in the Media Center.
