Positive Office Referrals

Forsyth Middle School honors students from grades 5th - 8th for exhibiting outstanding character traits. Students are selected for displaying positive character traits throughout the school day. Their positive office referrals are placed on the bulletin board in the hall by the middle school office. These students are called to the office and recognized for their positive behavior. Each month students are honored at the monthly character education assembly. Pictured below are the students honored for displaying positive character for the month of September.

Middle School Skate Night

Our student council sponsored a back-to-school skate night for Middle School students on September 6th. This year's student council sponsor is Ashley McConnell. We took 186 Middle School students to Skateworld on Tuesday, September 6th from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Below are a few pictures from that evening.

Congratulations Mrs. Voliva

Our school was notified we won a $250 incentive prize for our participation in this year’s Safe & Sober pledge program. In addition to the $250 gift card, they are sending us a prize kit that includes branded items to remind our students of their Safe & Sober pledge. Additionally, they will send a customized banner to celebrate our school’s outstanding pledge rate and encourage participation again this year. Mrs. Voliva utilizes the Safe & Sober curriculum every year during drug and alcohol prevention counseling lessons. She will utilize the funds to continue our drug and alcohol prevention programming in the middle school!
