I hope everyone enjoyed a restful fall break. With the 8th grade off to Washington, D.C. and 6th grade at Camp Kern, it’s pretty quiet around the middle school. Here are some upcoming events and reminders. As always, please reach out with questions.

Our annual service project is underway, but we could still use your help!

  • Food Drive continues through November 3rd
  • Clothing Drive is October 31 – November 8th
    • Please consider bringing in gently used clothing, toys, books, and bedding.

The Fill-A-Wish list still has lots of opportunities to contribute! Please take a moment to look https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4aaaaa2ba2fb6-fillawish3

AND, 6th and 7th grade parents – we could use you! There are a few volunteer positions left to help the students with the food service project. Sign up here

Should you have any questions at all, please reach out to Neal O’Brien, Assistant Director of Athletics at 614-509-2566.

Students are invited to wear a costume (or dress down) to school on Monday, October 31st. As it is a school day, please keep in mind that the costume should not inhibit anyone’s learning and should be respectful of all people and cultures. No blood or gore. If your child elects to wear dress down, please remember clothes should be free of holes.
