Dear Cobra Families

Can you believe that it is October and we are almost finished with the first nine weeks?


The progress reports were sent home on September 15th. Please review your child’s progress. The first 9 weeks ends on October 18th. It will be here faster than we know it. Knowing that we are a team, please contact your child’s teacher regarding any questions or concerns. Report Cards will be mailed home on Oct. 25th.


Our Curriculum Night will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 4th. We hope that you will be able to obtain some useful information to support your child this school year. Parents/Guardians will have an opportunity to request a conference with teachers during Curriculum Night.


We have kicked off our school-wide fall fundraiser, Domino's Slice the Card and it will run until Oct. 11th. Proceeds from the sale will be used to provide incentives to the students throughout the school year.


Our Fall benchmark assessments have been completed for all students. Academic intervention/remediation services are held everyday during Cobra Time to assist students academically. During the month of October & November, teachers will be holding parent/teacher conferences to share the results and the goals with you as well as discuss current grades.


Find time to ask specific questions about your child’s school day. It is very typical to hear, “Nothing,” especially from a middle schooler when you ask what they did in school today. Trust me, there are no days when that would be the truth! Teachers have established routines with students and our Cobra Time has been established to allow teachers the opportunity to reteach standards, review necessary skills and to ensure students are caught up on assignments.


If you should have any questions in the future, please don't hesitate to contact your child's teacher(s) or any member of the administrative team.



LaTanya Goodson, Principal
