New Parent Orientation/Back to School Night

Intermediate will host both a New Parent Orientation and a Back to School Night on Wednesday August 21st. New Parent Orientation will be from 5:30pm-6:30pm and Back to School Night will immediately follow at 6:30pm.


All 4th grade parents are highly recommended to attend New Parent Orientation at 5:30 and stay for Back to School Night. Families that have had a student in Intermediate within the last three years do not need to attend New Parent Orientation, but are urged to attend Back to School Night as important information about our program will be presented.


Reminder about school supplies

This week begins our normal daily schedule in Intermediate. Students will need all of their school supplies beginning this week. Students must have two 3-subject notebooks and a 1-subject notebook. These will be used as journals for language arts, math, and science. These journals will be used throughout the year.


Elective forms will go home this week!

Tomorrow we will send home the elective form on which students will need to write their first three choices of electives for each day of the week. Please remember that all students must sign up for a STEM elective! This form must be returned by this Friday and it must have a parent signature. All donations for participation in electives asking for a donation must be turned in before electives begin next week.


Snack in Intermediate

A reminder for new parents and seasoned veteran parents alike, students in Intermediate are expected to bring their own snack to school. Please remember that students are expected to bring a healthy snack (no chips or cookies please!) and will be invited to eat snack between 9:00am and 11:00am every morning. Students are often hungry the first days of school so please remember to send them with a snack!


Dress Code Reminder

During the first week of school every year, we remind our students about the dress code as many of them grow a lot over the summer. Help your student check to make sure they are dressed appropriately in the morning. Please no bare midriff shirts, see through clothing, strapless sandals, short shorts, spaghetti strap tops, or sagging pants and/or exposed underwear. Students who come to school with clothing that is not appropriate for school will be asked to call home for a change of clothes or will have to choose appropriate clothing from the extra clothing bin. If you are unsure of the dress code regulations, please consult the family handbook.


Back to School Bash

The Back to School Bash is our annual “Welcome Back to School” party that, together with ACA, is an evening of fun, food &  music. The fun starts at 5:30 on Aug. 23rd with a short Family Network General Meeting where we will vote on this year’s budget. Bring a picnic dinner or purchase food from local vendors! So, bring a blanket and your family members and join us in the front park at the fairgrounds!
