Middle School News: November 2019

From the Desk of Mrs. Brockmon

Parent Teacher Conferences

We look forward to seeing all of you at Parent Teacher Conferences!

Parent teacher conferences are this week;

Wednesday, November 6th and Thursday, November 7th from 4:00-7:30

You will receive your child's report card, NWEA scores & information and Spring 2019 M-Step scores & information.

Most students have at least five teachers and some students have seven teachers. In an effort to make time for you to conference with all of your child's teachers, there is a limit of 10 minutes with each teacher.

There will be an opportunity to take a quick survey in the cafeteria. It should only take about 5 minutes and the data from the survey will help us to know where we should focus our work in creating a positive climate at the middle school.

Mrs. Froehle will be at the middle school on Wednesday and the High School on Thursday.

Mr. Schultz, Mrs. Ash, Mrs. Kelbel, Mrs. Mohrman will be at the High School both nights.

Congratulations to Mrs. Frey and her family

Cooking Can Be Murder

The students and Mrs. Ash did a fantastic rendition of Cooking Can Be Murder this past weekend! Dinner was prepared by some of our food service staff and was delicious. We are looking forward to the announcement of the Spring Musical.

ParentVUE & StudentVUE


We encourage you to access ParentVue to support your child's success at the middle school.

Accessing ParentVue regularly will help you monitor your child's grades & assignments, absences & tardies and referrals.

If you do not have login credentials or need help with ParentVue,

please contact Mrs. Corthals at 591-9043.


Please encourage your child to use StudentVue to monitor progress.

It is important for your child to know their grades and

to know if they have any missing assignments.

When students are monitoring their own progress,

they are able to make adjustments when needed.
