Middle School Announcements October 18, 2021

Student-Led Conferences:  Please have your parent/guardian sign up for a time to meet with you and your Advisory teacher for your online student-led conference Oct. 21 or Oct. 22. An email was sent with the links to sign up and to join the meeting. If you cannot find the email, or have questions, call the middle school office.

Tech & Chess Club: Hey Tech Club attendees! 

To provide a better experience for Tech Club and Chess Club, we will alternate weeks so that students have more time to focus on a task. 

This upcoming week (October 20th) 7/8th grade will be working on robots, and 6th grade will have Chess the entire evening. 

Water Bottles: Students need to bring their own water bottle each day. It is best to have one with your name on it and that can be refilled at the water stations. The office does not have any more water bottles available. 

Arriving Early: Students should not arrive at school prior to 8:30, T-F, and 9:45 on Mondays.  The doors will not be open until those times. If students arrive earlier than the start of school, they need to wait in the library, not in classrooms. Teachers are in meetings until 8:45 most days.

Elevator: Students must have permission to use the elevator.

Cell Phones: Students are not allowed to use cell phones during school hours. Be sure that you keep your phone put away all day in your backpack. If you need to make a call, let your teacher know and come to the office. There will be consequences for having your phone out during the day. First offense: Your phone will be taken away and you will have to get it at the end of the day from the office. Second offense: Your phone will be taken away and your parents will have to come to collect it. Third offense: You will not be allowed to bring your phone to school at all.

Chromebooks: We are missing chromebook charging cords.  Please search your house and return any charging cords to the school.  Also, all chromebooks should be left at school.  We do not want chromebooks to go back and forth between school and home.  

Family Resource Room: Jen Hopkins is our Family Resource Coordinator. If you need supplies, clothing, or any type of needs, feel free to contact her. She is confidential and happy to help!

School Menu: Please be aware that the school menu is subject to change at any given time, depending on food quantities available each day. If you arrive to school late, be sure to let the office know that you plan on having a school lunch that day.

Bathroom Usage: Reminder, there is only one student in the bathroom at a time. Use your foot to move the cone in front of the door to indicate that you’re in there. Move the cone back out of the way when you are leaving. If there’s a cone in front, don’t enter until someone comes out. 

NKN Youth Wrestling Club: Attention 6th Graders:  There will be a Youth Wrestling Club for students P-6th grade starting Thursday, October 21st at the High School. The cost is $50 due at the first practice. Come by the office window to pick up a flyer with more information.
