Our 6-8 Curriculum Night is scheduled for Wednesday, September 25th from 6:00-7:00pm.
At 6-8 Curriculum Night, parents will walk through a shortened, mock schedule of their child’s day, learn about the curriculum covered in each class, grading, expectations and future learning. This is a great sneak peek into your child’s daily routine as they navigate middle school and prepare for high school and beyond.
Students with regular school attendance are more likely to succeed. Every day matters for every child. Everyone can help make this happen – schools, families and community members.
Attendance matters for students at all grade levels. Students who attend school regularly are more likely to read at grade level, and to build a strong foundation as they move from preschool and kindergarten to high school.
On the other hand, students who are chronically absent are at risk of falling behind. “Chronically absent” means a student is missing 10% of the school year. It doesn’t matter whether the absences are excused or unexcused. Each day represents lost time.
What does 10% look like? If your school district uses a five-day week, 18 days is considered chronically absent. If your district uses a four-day week, 14 days is considered chronically absent.
School districts are now tracking absences more closely. This is not to increase disciplinary actions – it is to identify students who may need increased support getting to school. Every day matters for every child.
Dear 6th Grade Families,
Home Access is the grading portal the Bethel uses for student records, etc. A link has been provided above under the header photo. Make sure you become familiar with it and check it often as it will inform you of your student’s progress throughout the term.
We value you at Meadow View!
Please take a moment to take a short community value survey:

The beginning of a new school year is an exciting time for us! We are looking forward to meeting all of you next week and hope that you are all ready to get back to work after a fun and relaxing summer:) Meet the Teacher Night will take place on August 28th this year, from 5-6pm. Lockers will be assigned and the earlier you come, the more time you will have to practice using a combination lock.
Please familiarize yourselves with the blog site. Updates for each subject area can be found at the tabs above. Also, please note that Home Access directions are available as well as Google Account access.
Best wishes for a fantastic school year,
Ms. Campbell, Ms. Jessie, and Mrs. Waters

The Annual 6th Grade Games will take place on Monday, June 17 from 12-2:15. We will be competing by classroom for the Golden Cup! If you would like to volunteer at one of the events, please let us know:)
We are in need of food donations for the party we hold afterwards. Please bring the following to share:
Campbell: Sweet treats (cupcakes, etc.)
Jessie: Water, juice boxes, Capri Suns etc.

The end of 3rd Term is nearing quickly. There are many students that have missing assignments and it is negatively affecting their overall grade. Please check Home Access with your student to make sure they are up to date with work completion.

State Testing for 6th graders will be the week of May 6-10 this year. Please make sure that your child brings ear buds/headphones to school for the testing week if they would prefer not to use the school provided headphones. We will be having a new testing schedule that will involve full day testing with breaks/snacks/activities. This will allow us to complete testing in one week rather than the 3-4 weeks that has occurred in the past. If you have any questions, please feel free to email/call.
