Middle School Families, check out the reminders for the weeks ahead…..

Break Time Update: At break time, the students are encouraged to spread out, eat their lunch or snack, use the restroom, and play if they so choose. We have provided a variety of balls as well as frisbees for students to share. There is a storage bin for these items next to the building that has not been completed. We are asking students not to bring their own balls from home but to use which may be damaged or lost and instead use what is provided and put it back in the correct spot so it will be available for use the next time they would like to use it.
Water Bottle Stock Up-We have asked each middle school student to bring 2 water bottles to put in their lockers on Monday as back up. We are trying to stock extra water too, but it goes quickly on hot days and we don’t want anyone to go without. .
