Magic in the Middle

Arcola Intermediate School

Student Welcome!

Dear Students,

We are so excited to see you on Wednesday! I am sure you have mixed emotions and feelings about coming back and summer ending, all of which are normal, we feel it too. Please do not worry as it is our job to make sure you find all of your classes and teachers. Our first two days of school will be filled with building activities and getting to you each one of you! So bring your smile and your best attitude and see you on Wednesday. When you enter the building, please report to your period 1 class and we will take it from there.

Family Welcome!

Greetings Arcola Families!

We are very excited to see you and your children for a great 2019. Our theme this year is, Be The One to Encourage, Empower and Inspire. Our goal is to get to know all students and build a relationship with them so that we can be sure we are reaching every student, every day. Our culture and climate is key to our success so we invite you and look forward to collaborating with us in the journey ahead!

Here are some helpful tips/reminders:

  • Lobby Guard is new and requires a license if entering the building. We have created an organizational system in the lobby where you can leave items that need to be dropped-off to help save you time!
  • All students will report to period 1 each day. There is time dedicated there to attendance and housekeeping items prior to the start of period 1. This is an efficiency that cuts down on travel and transitions for our students.
  • We are going paperless so you will notice forms and information all electronic and on line, sent out via messenger and on our website. Please be sure your information is up to date in the system.
  • We welcome your support and encourage you to get involved at school and with our home and school association- join Konstella!
  • Picture day is 9/4 and all forms are on the website.
  • Back To School Night for both grades is on 9/5.
  • If you received an email about immunizations, please submit your information to the nurse so that you can start school on time.
  • Orientation for grade 7 is tomorrow at 8:30am, see you in the auditorium!
  • Stay tuned for more information to come via school messenger and these newsletters.

We wish you all the best year yet!
