Middle School Rocks “Chalk the Walk”!
Congratulations to Lindsey Cantwell (7th) and Isabel Stewart (8th) for winning a Middle School "Award of Excellence" at the Chalk the Walk in Central Park” art festival on Saturday, November 3.  They each received a plaque and a $25 gift card.

Lost and Found is OVERFLOWING!
This picture shows just a fraction of the items that are in our Middle School Lost and Found! Parents, we remind students several times each week to check our Lost and Found for missing water bottles, lunch boxes, outerwear, etc.  Any items with names on them are returned to the owner. WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are cleaning out and donating all of the items in our Lost and Found THIS FRIDAY! Please encourage your student to pick-up and take home any items that belong to them. Thank you for your help!

After-School Tutoring for Middle School students!
We are excited to partner again this year with our High School National Honor Society students to offer an after-school tutoring center open to ALL Middle School students!  The tutoring center is available every Thursday afternoon (when school is in session) in Mrs. Rushing's classroom (MS 213) from 3:00pm until 4:00pm.  There is no charge for this service.  Students may receive help in ANY subject!  We hope our families will encourage their students to take advantage of this opportunity for extra academic help.
