Parent Teacher Conferences

As we start to draw a close to the first quarter of school, I wanted to take the time to remind everyone that parent teacher conferences are right around the corner. These will be held on October 5th from 3:45-9:00. While many of are teachers are here the entire time, a few of them are only here part of the time. See the Conferences Map below for more details.

While there are a number of avenues available for parents to keep track of student progress, a lot can be accomplished with a brief fate-to-face meeting with the teacher, student, and parent present. It is also a great time to see the changes and updates we have done at the middle school!

Red Ribbon Week is Coming!

Red Ribbon Week will be the week of October 23rd. Red Ribbon Week started back in 1988 it was to honor a young DEA Agent by the name of Enrique “Kiki” Camarena. He was kidnapped and killed in Mexico back in 1985. He had uncovered a multi-billion dollar drug scam which might have involved the Mexican Army, police force and government. In 1988 the U.S. Congress proclaimed the first Red Ribbon Week supporting the cause that "Kiki" had given his life for. It is one of the first times that ribbons were used to support a cause, the fight against drugs. We will be doing several things at the Mitchell Middle School to commemorate Red Ribbon Week. We will be hosting several dress up days all week:

Monday 23- Bullying can be sneaky! Don't let it sneak up on you (Wear Sneakers!)

Tuesday 24- Be a good sport and report bullying! (Wear a shirt or jersey from your favorite team)

Wednesday 25- Living Tobacco-Free is no Sweat! (Wear Sweats!!)

Thursday- I'm a Jean-ius, I'm Alcohol Free! (Wear Jeans)!

Friday- Sock it to Drugs (Wear Crazy Socks!)
