Success Lab starts on Tuesday, 09/11 and will meet every Tuesday and Thursday in the middle school library from 3:15 - 4:30. Success Lab is an opportunity to do homework in a quiet environment with people that can provide assistance. This is also a great opportunity for students who need some additional organization to become more successful.
Students will be given a healthy snack at Success Lab also. Students can come as often as needed and also can leave when they have finished their work.

Accessing the Document Vault in Power School: To find the grade reports document in Power School, log in as usual. On the lower left side of the opening screen is a link called "Document Vault", which you should click. You will be able to download and view or print your child's report card. If you do not know your Powerschool password, please contact: Patty Mote at the Middle School to reset it. 895-6264.
NOTE: Current physicals AND Concussion forms must be on file with the MS office prior to practicing. A new concussion form is needed each school year and good for the school year.
Sports Physicals: If your child will be participating in Middle School sports (7th & 8th graders) please make sure they have a current Physical and Heads up Concussion form on file with the school. Physicals and Concussion forms are required before a student can start practice. Fall sports (Cross Country, Football and Volleyball) start within the first week of school. Physicals are good for a year past the date of the exam. Click here for a physical form and here for a concussion form. If your child hasn't had a sports physical and will need one, summer is a great time to get that done!

Activity Passes or cash are needed to get into all Middle school and high school athletic events. State sponsored post-regular season athletic events (i.e. playoff/tournament games) always require payment for admittance for ALL students. Students with cell phones are encouraged to take a picture of their activity pass, that way they will most likely always have it handy. All students without activity passes will need to pay cash at the gate of sporting events. Reminder: Activity passes are not accepted during post season games.
