Stacey Information for the week of Sept 9-13,

I hope all students had a great full week of school now and are ready go tackle their learning. All students should have their chromebook and their textbooks and are ready to learn.  Please remember to check your child’s planner nightly to see what they have to complete. All parents should have received login information for access to jupitergrades. Please login and set up your account so that you can receive alerts on your phone, if you wish.   If you need assistance, Teresa Benitez our community liaison is here from 7:30 – 11 am and is happy to assist you. Remember you can easily communicate with each of your child’s teachers through the Jupitered program.

Back to School Night is this Wed. Sept.  11 beginning at 5:30 pm in our Gym. We will host a short PTA meeting and then I will review some important information and introduce our outstanding staff before having teachers open their classrooms. Please be sure you have a copy of your child’s schedule so you can follow it.  Period 9 will be held after period 8. Back to School Night is an opportunity for you to meet each of your child’s teachers and learn about the class curriculum, grading policies, homework, etc. It is highly encouraged that all parents attend this event to gather helpful information.  Students do not need to attend this event. They can come to our student showcases (Open House) in the spring.

On Tuesday Night, Sept 10, the parents of females students are invited to attend an informational meeting about our partnership with Girl’s Incorporated. Girl’s Incorporated provides an outstanding program to our female students in grade 6, 7 and 8 once a week during the girl’s PE periods. It is highly recommended that girls’ take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about mind and body awareness, the Work force and college and career readiness. All female students will be receiving a permission slip on Tuesday, Sep. 10 during their PE class and will be meeting with me and with a Girl’s Inc. staff member to inform the girls about this outstanding program.  We are the only middle school in our district to offer this program for our female students.  The program will officially begin on Thurs. Sept.  19 for girl’s who return their permission slip. Girls are excused from their PE class to participate in this program either on Thursday or Friday which ever day they have PE. They are not penalized in any way for their PE grade or completing their runs. 

Have a great weekend and I look forward to see you all at Back to School Night on Wed.
