The Mountaineer Middle School band held its 5th annual winter concert to benefit Toys 4 Tots on December 15. The concert packed the MMS gymnasium to hear over 200 students perform concert tunes and holiday favorites.
Toys 4 Tots is a program of the USMC Reserves that provides toys to underprivileged kids from birth up to 12 years old so they may get a better Christmas. The local T4T chapter that serves Harrison County was started by Sgt. William Weber. This chapter also collects and distributes to Preston, Monongalia, Marion, Taylor, and Doddridge Counties. Several hundred families are able to be helped by this worth-while charity.
The band was able to take donations of new, unwrapped toys, games, and even bicycles as well as monetary donations as admission to the concert. Approximately 470 toys were collected at the concert along with over $1,000, which was used for a shopping spree that yielded well over 200 more items for donation. Although falling short of the 1,000 item goal, they were able to collect over 700 items to donate this year. Since 2012, the band has been able to donate almost 4,000 toys and about 25 bicycles.
The MMS band hopes to continue its relationship in the foreseeable future with Toys 4 Tots and is looking for ways to increase donations for next year.

Our second 9 weeks student PBIS assembly was held on Thursday, January 20th. The students participated in competitive games provided by the Impact Crew. In the pictures below you can see students and staff participating in an octopus toss, who can spit their live cricket the farthest, voice activated flappy birds, and much more. Tons of fun was had by all!
