This week we enjoyed the start of our third year as a distinct middle school. On Monday, we opened the school year with some middle school orientation activities. We refreshed everyone's memory on middle school rules and expectations, did some iPad training, met our new Houses, and played some fun games. Also this week, we began using our new PE/Sports block. Using this flexible block of time at the end of each day, students can have an additional band or chorus practice, go to PE, or practice for their in-season sport. Although we are still working out some of the kinks, we're still very excited about the possibilities of this time. For example. all middle school students are done practicing for sports and ready for pick up beginning at 3:30 (Cross Country finishes at 3:00). We also practiced some of our new security procedures, learning which doors to enter and exit. As a reminder to parents, any middle school student entering after 8:00 am must enter through the front door (with the flagpole) and buzz-in with Ms. Kathie. They will then proceed to the Student Services Office to check in.

Next week we have Meet the Teacher Night on Monday, with an info fair starting at 6:00. If possible, we encourage you to come out and meet our teachers and learn more about academic expectations in each class for the year.
