Thank you to the PTA for providing a great Book Sale! The Library was buzzing with students discussing which books to purchase before the first morning bell moves them to classes!
A Message From The Principal

May 29, 2015

Dear Parents,

Please note that the Interim Reports for Quarter 4 have been posted.  If you have not had the opportunity to review them, please do so.  Any questions or concerns,  please contact your grade level team leader or the individual teacher.

As the end of the year approaches, we would like to provide you with upcoming events and the end of the year schedule.  We ask that you enter the dates into your calendar and keep it posted on your refrigerator.

Please be aware that our building is climate controlled.  There is no need for any type of abbreviated clothing.  All vital body parts need to be covered.  It gets embarrassing when students are asked to change.  We ask that you eyeball your students and check how they are dressed before they leave the house each morning.

As a reminder, in the cafeteria there is a lost and found.  We would love to have everything “found”.  On June 29th all clothes left in the bin will be donated to charity.  Please have your child check for any missing items.

On the end of the year schedule you will notice grade level events and activities.  Students need to continue to exhibit appropriate behavior to be included in these activities.   As we get closer to June, in the minds of many middle school students, school is over!  The month of June still has final exams and many long-term projects due.  Please monitor and review class work and projects.  This is an important time for academic work.

Please review the testing schedule.  Starting on June 16th we run half-day sessions.  Students with a morning session test will come to school at their regular time and are dismissed at 11:05.  Students with an afternoon test scheduled will follow the bus schedule for pick up and start their day at 11:15.  They will be dismissed at their regular time of 2:35.  Please read the test and bus schedules carefully.  Attendance and timeliness is important.  Your bus schedule will be available by Wednesday, June 3rd in your child’s personal account by clicking on the Transportation Info icon.  Please click on MS Bus Testing Schedule 2015 at the top of the page.  Also, please note that we have a full day on June 24th for grade level activities.

We look forward to a successful ending to the school year!  Please feel free to contact us with questions or concerns.  Moving-up information will be coming out separately to 8th grade parents.
