Welcome Back!



  • In honor of the holiday season, beginning the week of December 7th, please enjoy the privilege of wearing jeans. Be on the lookout for themed days such as holiday colors day, ugly sweater day, holiday getaway day, etc. ~ Courtney



  • For our Plus 5 and Plus 6 days, we will not have a passing period from 5th period to Plus 5 and Plus 6 to 6th period. We will turn off the bells during this time to remind students of the expectation to stay in the room. If students need a break, they can go to the restroom or get water during an appropriate time in the class period with a pass (one student at a time).



  • Keeping up with grades? Remember, grades from the previous week should be entered by each Tuesday. So all November grades should be completed and entered by tomorrow, December 1st.




  • On December 14th we're going to have our Academic Pep Rally. More details will follow about the schedule for the day and how all that will work. It may not look exactly like our regular pep rallies. We're excited to celebrate all our academic successes for the first semester!



  • Cafeteria/Hallway Morning Procedures


    All sixth graders eating breakfast should promptly report to the cafeteria when they arrive on campus. They are not allowed to hang out until 8:10 am and then decide they want to eat. As sixth graders arrive, please have them fill in along the walls down to Ms. Pierce’s room. Students are not to congregate next to the display case, in any stairwell, or block classroom doors. All students should remain seated unless they have permission from an adult to use the restroom or get a drink of water. No food/drinks/candy allowed in the hallway. If you have any trouble with students after you have warned them, please come find an administrator in the cafeteria or hallway.
