Dear Middle School Families,
We hope you had a restful vacation and are excited about the year ahead! Our first week back was successful as students and teachers re-acclimated into the daily routines here at the middle school. The next few weeks should be exciting as we learn together and prepare for the end of the second quarter on Friday, January 27th. Eighth grade students should begin thinking about how they will prepare for midterm exams in Algebra and Living Environment which will take place on January 25th and 26th.
As the quarter is shortly ending, parents should take some time to check in with their children to discuss how school is going for them. A good strategy is to review the student portal with your child so they can explain to you where they are doing well and areas they need to work on before the quarter ends. Of course, if you have any questions or concerns after speaking with your child or checking the power school portal, please reach out to your child’s teacher, team leader, or guidance counselor at your convenience.
Finally, our next Principal’s Coffee Talk will take place next week on Thursday, January 12 in the middle school library at 8:30am. During our time together I will go over the results of our parent ELA survey and speak to our strengths as well as the areas we hope to improve upon in the coming weeks and months. Of course, all other topics related to academics or life at the middle school are open for discussion as well. I hope to see many of you there!
Have a great weekend everyone!
