Middle School Happenings:
Fall can be a stressful time for students as they cope with new teachers, new classrooms and new classmates. One way we try to ease this stress is through some activities designed to help students get to know each other.
One fun event for all middle schoolers was our Friendship Friday, which was held on September 22. Most students were able to attend and could enjoy the games, the food and getting to meet new students. Although it did “rain out” part of our activities, we were able to remain flexible and move our activities inside the gym. It was certainly a lot of fun!
School is not all “fun and games,” however. September also saw our first MAP tests. Results will be sent home soon, but these tests will be quite useful for teachers to gauge where our students are at, and where we want them to be.
Coming soon will be our middle school camp. Camp will again be at Eco-Park this year from October 18-20. You should have already received some information and a permission slip for this event.
