Dear Middle School Families,
Students and staff have launched into a strong start for the 2019-2020 School Year and as a building family, a number of important traits have emerged to demonstrate learning and achievement. There is an abundance of learning and enthusiasm taking place at all grade levels at the Middle School, reflecting a dedication to academic growth. The Middle School years are generally a time for transition, and I must congratulate the entire student body and full staff for their hospitality in welcoming newcomers. The friendliness makes a difference in the lives of other people and I'm proud of how inviting and caring our middle school family has been. Keep up the great work. Students remain focused on academic improvement. Constantly measuring strides that are made in various assignments and subjects and then actually striving for that achievelenmnt is key to continued success.
Beyond the classroom, our student ambassadors have gone above and beyond in their assistance with the monthly school market and working with newcomers to the building. On behalf of the building administration, thank you for such a helpful attitude. The Middle School deserves a word of congratulations for receiving a Bronze Star from the Ohio Department of Education for Positive Behavior Intervention Supports, and will receive it at the annual conference in December. Keep a look out for upcoming family engagement nights! The first one is Thanksgiving Meet and Greet on November 20th. More information coming soon!! Ongoing information and updates is being added on our website, the athletics website, the Middle School facebook group, twitter, and Instagram. Please visit these sites.
Students are encouraged to practice advocating for themselves and taking ownership in their learning. Students and parents should check Progress Book regularly. Finally, students should be reading a minimum of 20 minutes every day at home. We encourage all students to get involved in activities: boys basketball, girls basketball, wrestling, cheerleading, drill team, bowling club and builders club. These co-curricular activities help to build important communications, teamwork, and leadership skills.
