Below is the schedule for your elementary schools to visit MMS:

Placement and scheduling begin in the Spring and continue into the Summer. As this is a very complex process, we do not honor requests for teachers or teams.
In order to facilitate scheduling for next year, it is essential that you share your child’s Music and World Language preferences with us by March 3, 2023. Please discuss and review the opportunities available at MMS with your child.
