Dear 2023-24 Middle School Parents,

Welcome to our classroom! We have been busily planning for an exceptional 2023-24 year for your middle school student, and look forward to the start of school on Wednesday, Aug. 16th at 8:15AM!

On Wednesday, August 23 from 6~7pm, please mark Back to School Night for the Middle School Parents on your calendars!  All students need to have at least one parent representative at the meeting. This meeting will help you understand our program, and what we will be asking of both your student(s) and you to help them have a successful school year! Even if you have had Middle School students in our classroom in the past, there is always something new to learn!

The suggested supply list for your middle school student for the coming school year (will need pencil/pen & 1 spiral notebook the first 2 days of school; other materials  will be needed through-out the year):

*3- 1 ½” 3 ring binders, or 1- 3 ½” 3 ring binder

*A calculator

*Four college ruled, spiral bound, single subject notebooks (not wide ruled, multiple subject)

*Graph paper (math)

*Post-its (assorted sizes, including tab).

*Durable tabs for filing for RJW notebooks.

*3 x 5 lined index cards, 5 x 7 index cards: 1-2 packs each.

*Subject dividers

*College ruled binder paper

*Pencils, erasable pens & regular pens (must be blue or black),

*Whiteout, erasers

*Highlighters (4 different colors), black permanent markers, colored pencils

Classroom Needs: (please donate any of these items to our classroom…thanks!) Kleenex, pencils, colored markers, dry erase markers, graph paper, glue sticks, etc.

Chromebook & Literature Books Donations: During the school year, each student will be assigned a classroom Chromebook, and several Literature books. We are asking for a $30 tax deductible donation to help us purchase literature books, and help cover the cost to fix normal “wear & tear” issues for the Chromebooks (this does not cover neglect/misuse/loss of either of these items – guardians are responsible for replacement cost).

Other Important Notes:

  • Please keep an eye out for an email from Dochub.  We will need you to sign several forms (Independent Study, Tech Device Contract, School Issued Materials, and the Experiential Learning Permission Form).

  • Our first Study Trip has been scheduled for Thursday, September 21st.  Information will be emailed home in August.

Looking forward to an incredible year!

MS Team
