Greetings Samuel P. Massie Academy Family,

I believe that January was an exceptional month for us celebrating the birthday of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It’s essential for us to remember how far America has come. Personally, I re-read two of Dr. King’s speeches, I See the Promised Land and I Have a Dream. Some quotes from Dr. King are relevant today. “We’ve got to stay together and maintain unity. Let us rise up with a greater readiness. Let us stand with a greater determination. We have an opportunity to make America a better nation. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. Continue to work with the faith that unearned, Let Freedom Ring!”
We will host our Night of the Arts on Thursday, February 22nd. Engaging and interactive information will be shared regarding Creative Arts. A Black History Program will occur on Wednesday, February 28th.
We have also paid for iReady which is a research based online program to help the children practice problems which are directly aligned with the Common Core Standards. Each child at our school has been given their personalized password to access iReady,, and MyOn. Students in grades 6-8 can access Khan Academy which will assist in PARCC preparation. Please encourage your children to use these resources.
The second quarter ended on Friday, January 26th. Reports cards will be distributed on Thursday, February 8th.
All stakeholders are vital to our school community. Through active participation and teamwork, we will continue to work together to guarantee student success.
Please look for flyers and information on our school website regarding school activities planned for the month of February.

Yours in education,
Mrs. Michelle H. Pegram
