Class Meetings - 8th grade NEXT WEEK

Ms. Roletto would like to start monthly meetings for each grade level cohort of students.

We will meet Tuesday mornings at 9:30am - ten minutes earlier than class starts.


A calendar invitation will be sent out to students through their email and will pop up on their google calendar.


This is a chance for students to meet as a class and for Ms. Roletto to check-in, talk about extra activities and answer questions about things going on at school. Getting student feedback is important.

Student Emails and Google Calendar

The middle school team will also expecting students to be checking their student email regularly.

  • Mr. Roletto will be sending information about activities throughout the year
  • Teachers will confirm appointments with students


It's a skill they will need to have when they get to high school and expected to use.


Also it will be important for students to use their email because we WANT to text students, but we aren't able to use REMIND messaging directly with students as some parents have asked because their is an age requirement that most of our students don't meet.
