Principal's Notes

Thanks so much for teaming with us to educate your children! This month I would like to highlight our upcoming Parent - Teacher conferences on Tuesday, October 24th and Thursday, October 26th from 4:30 - 8:00 p.m. The purpose of these conferences is to provide parents and teachers an opportunity to discuss the academic progress of each student.
Our fall conferences are modeled after the traditional Parent-Teacher Conferences with our core teachers being located in the class rooms, arranged by teams. The special area teachers will be located in the commons area.
Our office staff will be located in the main entry of the building and will provide you with a map of where teachers are located in the school, and a copy of your child's first quarter progress report. Student Council members will be on hand to help guide you to your destination. You may park on either the north side (front) or the south side (back) and enter the building.
The Middle school years are a time of rapid change. Parents and teachers often have a wide variety of information to share with each other regarding intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth and development. We hope these conference are beneficial to you and your child. If you have questions, please ask. We thank you in advance for attending!


HOW TO MAKE PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES WORK FOR YOUR CHILD

All Children learn in different ways. They have their own individual personalities and their own listening and work habits. To help their students learn new knowledge and skills, teachers must know as much as they can about each child’s likes and dislikes. No one knows more about these things than you, the parents, and no one has more influence over your children than you. Teachers need your help to do a first - class job. Working together, you and the teacher can help your child have a successful school year. Discuss your conference with your child. Make sure s/he knows that you and the teachers care. Stay in regular touch with the teachers to discuss the progress of your student. The partnership between home and school is critical to the success of all students.

GREAT JOB!

The drop off in the morning an pick up in the afternoon has been going very smoothly. Thank you for using the south side loop for drop off and pick up. One additional reminder - please follow speed zones and other traffic reminders surrounding our schools. They are in place for the safety of our students. We also ask that parents do not stop with-in the crosswalk when dropping off and picking up. Staying behind the flag pole, when dropping off and picking up serves as a helpful guide! Thanks so much for your attention to this matter!
