As we embark of the last six weeks of our academic year, I wanted to take a moment and update you on the progress of our reconfiguration work. In November and January, I sent Reconfiguration Status Reports outlining the main components of Reconfiguration including the transition to the middle school, staffing and scheduling, enhancing the middle school program, and building community.
In the report below (see link), we will outline a new grading policy for the middle school, update you on further decisions related to Reconfiguration, and outline important dates for the 2012-2013 school year. Below you will see a brief overview of the topics discussed in the report:
- Grading Policy
- Honor Roll
- Grading Policies for Middle School
- Reconfiguration Updates
- Parent Portal
- Language Selection
- 5th and 6th Grade Schedule and Gender Classes
- Big Brother/Big Sister
- Dress Like a Middle Schooler
- Important 2012-2013 Dates
- 5th and 6th Grade Orientations
- Sports Tryouts for 6th - 8th Grades
My hope in this letter and status report is that you feel informed about and invested in the experience your child will have once the 5th grade moves into the middle school. Please email or call me with any questions or input you may have.

Middle School Director
