The Hall Way...
Now would be a good time to discuss your student's progress with them. However, with middle school students that can be difficult. How many times have you asked your student "How was school today?" and they have responded with just a "good"? Or what about asking "What did you learn at school today?" only to get a response of "nothing"? Here are a few suggestions of things you can discuss with or ask your student about their midterm grades:
-Which class are you most proud of your work?
-Which class do you want to improve your grade?
-Discuss any teacher comments with them.
-Check how many days of school your student has been absent. Ask your student how they think the missed days have affected their grades.
-What are some goals they can set to maintain and/or improve their grades?
-Are there any classes where your student should ask for help? Discuss with them how they can advocate for themselves and ask for help.
Thank you for your support!

Bolstering self-critical children who tend to talk themselves down
Just a reminder!
Per the NMS handbook:
ILLNESS: Should a student begin to feel sick during the school day, he should ask the teacher for a pass to the nurse's office. The student must tell the nurse that he/she is not feeling well. Should the student be seriously ill, the nurse, or designee, will contact the family. Students are not allowed to use a cell phone or to call their parents from a classroom to tell them to pick them up from school. A student will be excused from school ONLY by the school nurse or by an administrator once already in school. Should a student be picked up without going through the nurse or administrator, the absence will be unexcused.

If you are ordering spirit wear as a gift, there is a box to check on the order form and you will be contacted to pick it up!
