  • Please have your students go to the announcements section on the school website and vote on their favorite quote so we can get a cover/wrap that is personalized to our school.

  • MTSS Information:
  • Please update Tier paperwork using 2nd Nine Weeks Assessments and include the intervention documentation sheet in Tier 2 and Tier 3 folders. Tier 1 paperwork for your core class need to be updated also. Please see Mrs. Tippett or Mrs. Snell if you have questions.
  • Do you have student that need to be moved to Tier 2 or Tier 3 for behavior or academics? If so, please let Mrs. Tippett know so the proper paperwork can be completed.


Please see the testing Irregularities/misadministrations totals for the year in our district. We continue to deliver training and put things in place to avoid issues. Let's work together to improve for our next session.
Big picture
Project P.I.N.K. girls have been working on "How will you define yourself". Here is a video Mrs. Snell and Mrs. Fehlman streamed to get the girls thinking. Please help us reinforce this necessary milestone in our girls, and even young gentlemen. This is a hallmark in middle school that a significant number of our students face, not just the girls in Project P.I.N.K.
