Message from Mrs. Stanley: Students, I appreciate that as we continue to follow the PBIS expectations and our social contracts, the majority of you are making good choices throughout the day.   These behavior choices are expected to be carried over into other aspects of school activities.  Attending activities is a privilege that may now be revoked for up to two weeks if school expectations cannot be followed during the school day.  Examples of extra curricular activities where attendance may be revoked include but are not limited to:  sporting events, fine arts concerts, plays, musicals, activity nights.




December lunch menus now available in the office.

Film Club will continue to meet Tuesday mornings at 7:30 in Mrs. Patzer's unless otherwise noted.  


If you would like to meet with Mrs. Pontefract or Mrs. Tadin, please use the link below to request an appointment.  Once the request is made we will reach out to you within the next two school days to schedule a time to meet.  If you need immediate assistance, please contact Mrs. Pontefract or Mrs. Tadin directly through email, stop by the middle school office or make a request through your teacher.  Please be aware that sometimes our schedules change and we have to rearrange the times that we meet with students.  If you have any questions, please let Mrs. Pontefract or Mrs. Tadin know.  


Schedule Support Appointment

Students, please do not throw away your August/September Star sheet.  You can turn them in at the Ramsway store once you've used all the Stars or you can give them to a teacher and the teacher can put them in Ms. Tadin's mailbox. You do NOT need to transfer Stars from your August/September sheet to the October sheet - just bring down both sheets to the RamsWay store.
