Dear Middle School Family,

Students are wrapping up the scripts for the US History presentations early this week, and will be presenting to the class starting on Wednesday, October 24. Maizzy and I have been busy helping the students condense and edit what they've learned into clear, engaging scripts. We're proud of the effort they've put into these projects. It really shows.

Next week, we'll move forward into the Reconstruction Era (post Civil War, post Slavery), and on into the present. Once we have the context of how the United States has grown into being, we'll move into learning more about the work in progress that is our system of government. We have a lot of exciting work ahead of us!

Family Conferences
Please note that Family Conferences are on November 8th and 9th this year. There is no school on those days. It's a little different for Middle School than with the other grades, since Carrie and I both teach your student. You will schedule a conference with just one of us: your student's homeroom teacher. Your student's homeroom is where they eat their lunch. If you are not sure which teacher to schedule your conference with, just ask your student whose classroom they eat their lunch in.  Here's the link to sign up:

Please be sure to bring your student to the conference!

If you would like to talk about class-specific concerns, please don't hesitate to contact Carrie for Math/Science, or Jon for Communications/Humanities. We'd be happy to set up a time to meet.

Take care,
Jon and Maizzy
