Middle School Newsletter


Hello, Middle School Families,

As we near the end of the first semester, Middle School students are preparing for Final Exams. These exams are for our 7th and 8th grade students to give them the experience in taking a cumulative "final exam" in their courses. The teachers are working with students on techniques to prepare and study for these exams. In preparation for finals, the teachers have not introduced new material, but have reviewed previously taught lessons, ideas, and key information. In this way our 7th and 8th grade students will begin to become more comfortable with this process as they move closer towards high school.

Our new semester begins on January 24th and all grades will begin anew for all subjects for our 5th-8th grade students. The teachers and Advisors will remind students that this in an opportunity to have a "fresh start" in respect to grades for each of their subjects. As parents, please take the opportunity to review this idea of beginning again with a "clean slate" in their studies.

"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end."
Seneca (Roman Philosopher, mid-1st century A.D.

Sincerely,

Tim Gerrity and Middle School Teachers
