Middle School Course Selection Approval


Course selection has been completed with our incoming 6th grade student. You will receive an email from the district with a unique code to access Naviance and approve your child's plan. We have included instructions on how to reset your passwords Naviance Parent Password Reset and a tutorial for how to approve plans in Naviance can be found here.

You will have the opportunity to make changes to your student’s courses for the upcoming year in April and May during Course verification. Nevertheless, if you would like to update the current plan at this time, or have any questions please reach out to your child's future middle school counselor.

Cell Phones

As a reminder cell phones are not allowed to be used during the day. Once a student walks through the doors the phones must be turned off and put in their backpacks until we walk out of the door for dismissal. Students using their cell phone during the day will have it taken up and place with the Assistant Principal or Principal for parents to come and pick up. This includes watches that have text and call ability. Thank you for your help.

Behavior

We are now in week two of our 5th Grade earning time for Super Kids Day. As a reminder they have the opportunity to earn one point in the morning block and one point in the afternoon block for appropriate behavior and work habits. Students will need to earn 80% of the possible points to attend Super Kids Day. Thank you for your support as we make sure our 5th graders have the skills and self-monitoring necessary to be successful in middle school. Please contact your child's teacher with any questions.
