First semester Physical Education classes at MMS will be teaching students the unit on Human Growth & Sexuality November 27 – December 8.
Parents/guardians of these students are invited to come by the MMS Media Center during school hours November 17–21 to review the materials that will be presented.

This year, Mauldin Middle will be using LiveSchool, an app that will help us share behavior feedback with you and your child. This has replaced the former PRIDE card system and has an added enhancement of rewarding students for positive behavior. Adults in our building use the web-based program or app to assign negative points to students as a result of poor choices, and add positive points to a student account for Preparedness, Respect, Impulse Control, Determination and Empathy.
By setting up a LiveSchool account, parents are able to receive weekly emails with data on:
We will be working hard to make this the best school year yet for your child! To learn more, please visit whyliveschool.com for a short video introduction to the service.
All students will be given a LiveSchool access code for their parents on Monday. Please ask your students for the flyers. You should receive a double-sided letter explaining LiveSchool and a paper with the access codes for both parents and students. Parents are provided two codes for split households. Also, you may add siblings to the same account. Students can access their LiveSchool accounts through their Backpack/Clever account.

Middle school students and younger must be accompanied by an adult 19 years old or older to every high school athletic event (including 7-8th grade D-team football).
