A Message from the Principal
We had another successful week here at King Philip Middle School. Our classes are really beginning to dive into the curriculum. During the week, I saw students engaging in a variety of assessments so that teachers can monitor their progress. On #PositiveSignThursday, we had our second positive message of the year: A smile is the universal welcome. We will continue to spread positive messages on Thursdays (and other days as well) throughout the year. Friday was Picture Day. A big thank you goes out to the parents that volunteered their time to help make the day a success: Emily Hatami, Jan Laberge, Adelina Mitchell, Jaime Moore, Mariette Crisci, and Sarah Holmes. Also, thank you to the PTSO for getting the word out to the community. Please be aware that Picture Day make-ups will take place on Tuesday, November 12.
I hope that you are having a great weekend!

As mentioned in last week's Warrior Weekly, vaping is an epidemic that is affecting all of our youth. Please see the link below, from the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids with the support of the CVS Health Foundation, to watch a free video created to provide relevant, youth-focused information on the rise of e-cigarettes like Juul and to prevent nicotine use.
Do you know someone that may make a great substitute teacher? Do they love working with children? Can they manage a class, maintain records, and give help to students? If so, encourage them to apply to be a substitute at KPMS! See the full job posting on SchoolSpring or contact Mr. Alves in the KPMS main office if you have any questions.
