Overlook Monthly News
We have been getting in the groove here at Overlook Middle School. Students have been adjusting back to school and finding their rhythm. There have been many happenings and highlights this past month. Many students have signed up for clubs and sports. They are checking out the school store and well underway with their AR reading! Start with Hello Week was a great success with students having opportunities to learn strategies to combat social isolation. We have reconsidered the Washington D.C. and have begun the planning process for this year's grade 8. There will be a parent informational night for the grade 8 parents/guardians on October 4 from 6-7 in the Overlook Team Room. Come late winter, we will start planning for the current 7th grade class for their grade 8 trip!
The dance has been quite the highlight of September and students clearly had a great time. We captured some of those awesome moments on our overlook_eagles Instagram account. Admittedly, Mrs. Miville and I are not social media user superstars. We are giving this Instagram a try and do our best to post from our school events.
The event to look forward to in October is the good ol' Monster Dash! We can't wait to introduce Mrs. Miville to this fun time! She loves running and Halloween! She is in for a sure treat!
Have a great October!
