Middle School Weekly Update

November 15, 2021

Anti-Bullying Week

This week we will be focusing on Anti-Bullying. Each day we are asking students to wear a designated color each day. Students will learn the meaning of each color during their Guide period. The daily colors are as follows:

Monday, November 15th - wear white

Tuesday, November 16th - wear gold

Wednesday, November 17th - wear blue

Thursday, November 18th - wear red

Friday, November 19th - wear blue and white

This week was the start of the second marking period for students in 7th and 8th grade. Some students may have had some schedule changes to accomodate AIS services. 7/8 grade report cards will be mailed home this week. If your child is struggling, please make sure that they are taking advantage of after school opportunities. 5-8 grade teachers are after school a minimum of two days each week to help students. Middle school students can take the 3:20 bus home if they stay after.

5/6 grade report cards will be mailed out on 12/10. 5/6 grades are on trimesters, while 7/8 grade students are on quarters.

Now that we are back in school, it is imperative that your child attends school every day and that they are on time! Please read the attached article for helpful strategies to improve your child's attendance. https://www.attendanceworks.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/MiddleHigh_handout_101321.pdf
