A Message from Rick Benoit

It is difficult to believe that June 1st is just a week away!  It seems like just days ago we were welcoming our new 5th graders to the building.

As we close out the year, there are a lot of trips and events going on here at the Middle School.  Please make sure you pay close attention to any announcements and notifications from both the school and your student’s team in regards to special events.

A few of the bigger events coming up are Step-up Day for our rising 5th – 8th graders on June 1st, when students will have time to connect with their advisory group.  Our rising 9th graders will be going to the High School on June 7 to meet with their Advisory groups.  The rising freshmen will also have an opportunity to visit the PATHS program either June 8 or 9, and we will close out their Middle School career on June 14.

While the year winds down, it is important that we remind our students that all school expectations are still in place.  Please take a few minutes to remind your student that behaviors and grades can impact not only this year, but can carry over to next year.  Let’s finish strong!

Health Office

The Middle school staff would like to send a big thank you to the Patriot Parents, local businesses, individuals and families for all the wonderful breakfasts, lunches, ice cream, amazing baked goods and heartfelt support during staff appreciation week. We enjoyed it all!
