Summer Office Hours Have Begun. The office will be routinely staffed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am-1pm and by appointment as needed. Both email and phone messages will be checked regularly.
Summer CHOICE Sales - CHOICE cards will be available for sale on Wednesday, June 29; Wednesday, July 13; and Wednesday, August 10. If you have questions about summer CHOICE sales, please contact Tammy Budnick at the school office.
Getting Ready for a New School Year - Again this summer, the school blog has a "Back to School" Page. Click here to visit the "Back to School" Page or use the navigation tabs at the top of the blog. Be sure to visit this page frequently for easy access to things like Supply Lists and Summer Assignments.
Incoming 6th grade students and students new to our middle school will also find a link to a Sign Up Genius for their iPad Deployment meeting with Mrs. Hatch. Click here to visit the Sign Up Genius. At this meeting, the required iPad "Big 3" forms (i.e., verify that iPad insurance has been paid, return signed acknowledgements for Parent/Student Handbook and iPad AUP and signed Electronic Use Agreement) should be turned in. During this appointment, Mrs. Hatch will also review key components of the Acceptable Use Policy, use of the Notability App, school GMail and automatic backup to Google Drive and answer any questions. No incoming sixth grade student, student new to our 7th or 8th grades or student that has been notified that an appointment is required will be given an iPad for school use -even once school begins - until this meeting has taken place. Our goal is to maximize student productivity with the iPad and to better assure appropriate educational use of the device. Questions should be referred to Mrs. Hatch at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-658-9412.
There will be Summer Blog Posts as needed.
Finally, be sure to be on the look out for your "Back to School Mailing" in August. This year, this "mailing" will be sent to you electronically at the email you have designated as your primary family email address. If you are not sure that the email address we currently have on file for your family is the "best one to use", please send the email you want used to email@example.com. Put "Back to School Mailing email"in your subject line and we will be sure to update our school database(s).
Is your family planning summer fun? Again this year, you are invited to share photos of your family's summer fun and activities with our community. Summer fun photos can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
