school has been busy with new 5th graders assimilating into our
middle school community and our returning students settling into a new routine
as they move to the next grade. Students
and teachers have been working as a community to build strong relationships
with each other and to create a positive atmosphere. We strive at the middle school to create a
place where kids want to come to school, where they feel safe and supported and
have certain freedoms to make choices and have options during the school day.
During November we held an incentive day where students could participate in a game afternoon if they had 90% attendance for the month. We had 98% of our students achieve this! Attendance is very important to everyone’s success, we strive to have our kids “show up.”
During the fall sports season we had 75% of our students participate in a modified or youth sport. Our modified sports were very successful, girls’ soccer and volleyball were both undefeated and showed great sportsmanship. One of our goals is to have 75% or more of our students participate in extra-curricular activities. In addition to athletics, we have over 200 students signed up for clubs and school sponsored activities. Please continue to encourage and support your child’s involvement in these activities.
events at the middle school: state exams
will be in March and April, we have an incentive event for January-February that
will be tied to student behavior, and winter athletics will be in full swing
with spring sports starting in March.
