Hampton Bays Middle School

Monday Memo #15

Prepare for Take-off!

Dear T.E.A.M. :


Can you believe it's already December? This is such a great time to be in school, and it's one of our busiest times. Be sure to keep a close eye on our Weekly Calendar, listen to our announcements, and watch for time-sensitive emails. There are so many amazing things happening, all-at-once. We don't want to miss a beat.


Our teams, departments, and clubs are actively involved in kicking off and facilitating events of various kinds.


Five middle school events worth noting this week:


1. Bilingual Parenting Group (Monday)

2. Faculty Meeting & Board of Education Meeting (Tuesday)

3. Middle Level Collegial Network (Wednesday)

4. Hour of Code Kick-Off (Thursday)

5. Rising to the Challenge (Friday)


While these events will meet expectations set forth in our action teams, there is a greater value here. Each of these will take actionable steps towards bring us greater focus on how to best serve our students, families, and middle school community.


If you see something that you're interested in getting more involved with or in taking the lead on, please don't hesitate to reach out to learn more, or to dive right in.


Thank you for your dedication to our students and our middle school program.


Sincerely,


Dennis
