Physical Education

With the change in weather and cooler temperatures coming, the middle school has made a few modifications to our PE schedules. As of October 18th, students will have PE either A/C or B/D days, rather than everyday. This will allow students more opportunities to participate in physical activities.

Interim Reports

Interim reports have been posted in eSchool and can be accessed through the Student Portal as well as the Parent Portal. A physical copy of each student’s interim report was also mailed home. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this report, please reach out to your child's teachers or the counseling office.

 

Social Emotional Learning

On Mondays and Thursdays of each week, homeroom teachers facilitate discussions on building relationships and making connections with peers and staff members. It’s a great way for teachers to check in on how our students are doing. We want them to know that we care and we are here to help!

Please encourage your child to log into their Google Classroom homeroom on Mondays and Thursdays if they are virtual. We want to include all students in our informal discussions. Each month we highlight one character trait. For the month of October our word has been KINDNESS and for November, our word will be THANKFUL.
