Iowa Conditions for Learning Survey
Pella Middle School will administer an annual school climate and culture survey called Conditions for Learning to students in grades seventh and eighth grade. This survey administration is required by the state’s plan to meet a federal law called the Every Student Succeeds Act. Our school will conduct the survey in later in April, and the letter outlining this is below.

No Parades - No Problem!
The Pella Marching Dutch led the Tulip Queen into the town square a little differently this year. The bands participated in the processional leading her in, and in the photo below, Mr. Schott was preparing his 8th grade drum line.

Students vs. Staff Basketball - Another Epic Battle!
It was Students vs. Staff in a basketball battle that won't soon be forgotten! Anytime there is competition amongst students and staff, it has always proved to be heated. In the end, the staff squeaked out the victory against the 7th and 8th grade students. Well done by all, and what a great display of competition and sportsmanship.

Pick up your Meds please
The nurse will be available from 8:00 AM until 3:30 PM on May 26, and from 7:45 AM to 1:00 PM on May 27. During these hours parents may pick up student medication at their school. This is for both prescription and non-prescription medications. Items not picked up during this time will be disposed of appropriately.
If you are not sure your student has medication in the nurse office, please email email@example.com
Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care.
The Counselor Connection
Your seventh grade student has signed up for his/her desired exploratory courses and music electives. Please note that this does not guarantee they will take only/all of their selected exploratory courses, but rather gives us flexibility when building schedules. We would like to see students take courses they enjoy, but also know the value of working through something new. Thank you for your support and understanding.
Student schedules will be released the week before school starts in August via Infinite Campus. Each 7th and 8th grade student will receive one paper copy of their schedule during orientation/laptop rollout on August 19th and 20th.
If you have questions about your student's schedule for the upcoming school year, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a fantastic summer!
