Middle Minutes 1-16-19
Daily Class Schedule Change
Starting Tuesday, January 22nd, we will be returning to the schedule that was in place last year. This will add an additional block to the day. Each block will be 55 minutes in length. Science and social studies will again be offered every day in addition to math, language arts and unified arts. Your children will still have the same UA rotation and UA classes during the same block they do now. In addition, lunches will be done by grade levels and not teams. As a staff, we will be working with the students to make the transition as smooth as possible. Thank you for your patience.
MS Football announcement
As many of you know, many schools are considering 8 man football as the MPA seems to be moving in that direction. Our roster numbers and makeup will be the primary factor that determines which direction the GNG program is going next year if 8 man is an option. For 6th, 7th & 8th graders there is a 2019 sign-up sheet in the middle school office that needs to be filled out. If your student is considering playing next year, please have them come to the office on Tuesday, January 22nd. Please spread the word to those who may be interested in playing, but did not receive this information.
