Winter Break is around the corner. Please let us know if students are going to be absent in advance so that we can make sure that they have the work they will need to complete over the break. Also, please be aware that, at the middle school level, we teach right up to the last day and it is important that your child attends class.

Dear Middle School Families,
We are looking forward to conferences this week. Conferences are on Wednesday, December 5th and Thursday, December 6th. We are holding student-led conferences for grades 6-8. Students have prepared folders with work samples and information to share with you about each of their classes. During the conference, your child will share their portfolio of work. After reviewing your child’s report card, learning about classes and reviewing work samples, you and your child can choose to meet with individual teachers. You may decide that you want to meet with one teacher or multiple teachers within your 20 min time slot. The goal of student-led conferences is for students to take the lead on their learning and to share their strengths and areas for growth. We are very excited for this structured conference opportunity and to empower our students to invest in their learning.
Thank you for your continued support of your child and for collaborating with us to enhance their educational experience.
We are looking forward to a new term with lots of fun challenges and community building. Parents/Guardians please check with your student about replenishing supplies such as pencils, erasers, paper, etc.
Grading Day is November 30. Student Led Conferences are next week. Stay tuned…
Wishing all of you a happy and healthy holiday:)

The end of the term is fast approaching! Please check Home Access and talk with your student about missing assignments and low grades. There are only two weeks left to make up missing work or arrange to retake tests.
Just a reminder that Jessie’s class will be heading to Whitaker Creek on Thursday and Waters’ and Campbell’s on Friday. Weather is looking dry and in the upper 50’s but be prepared for anything!
The Salmon Watch 6th grade field trip will be taking place on November 8th for Ms. Jessie’s class, and November 9th for Ms. Campbell and Waters’ classes. This trip takes us up into the coast range to the Whitaker Creek Recreation Area where we will study water quality, riparian zones, macroinvertebrates and salmon biology.
This trip is a “rain or shine” event. Please make sure your child dresses appropriately. Layers are always a good idea with the outermost layer being water-proof.
Students will also need to bring a sack lunch from home. A thermos with something warm to drink can be a wonderful thing on a cold and/or wet day. Please no glass containers. If a sack lunch is needed from the Meadow View kitchen please indicate in the space provided below.
We will leave Meadow View around 8:35 and be back in time for normal dismissal.
Volunteers are needed for this trip! Please come and spend an amazing day outside with your child while helping out.

Chess Club begins today for 6-8th graders after school from 2:30-3:15 in Room 30.
No experience is necessary:)
Any student may retake a test but must do the following:
1. Correct the old test.
2. Give the corrected test to the teacher the day the student wishes to retake it.
3. The teacher will put a “fresh” test in the library for the student to take during lunch recess.
There is a one week retake window from the day the test is handed back.
