Spring Report Card Pick-Up/Parent-Teacher Conferences will take place on Wednesday, April 13th from 8:30-12:00 and 12:45-3:30. This year, we are excited to continue Middle School Student Led Conferences! Your child will lead the conference by showing you samples of his or her work in the core subject areas and specials, as well as goals for the upcoming quarter and a reflection on Q3. There will be no school for students, but we are requesting that students attend the conference with you.
The conference form went home with students on Wednesday, March 30th. You can also download one here if needed.

We cannot begin to tell you how proud we are of our middle school students. Their History Fair projects are exceptional. Students have been working since before Winter Break, picking topics, researching, annotating, writing, producing, and publishing.. Their work has been incredible. Students moving on to the school wide competition will be announced on Wednesday afternoon. We have three judges coming in Thursday morning to determine who will be moving on to City Championships. Thanks to Nicolle Hellar, Ben Austin (Skinner Parents), and Shawn Heally of the McCormick Foundation for judging. A huge thank you to Dr. Netterstrom and Ms. Magnuson, too. They're judging all the papers!
Check in with Ms. Cox or Ms. Mueller for all the details. Deadlines will be posted on the homework site and can also be found in the project packet. Here is a link to that packet, should you like to peruse it.
All 7th and 8th grade students received an outline for the Q1 Project, which involves choosing between two different math competitions (or choosing both). Tonight, they are asked to read over the outline and be ready to ask questions and hear more about the competitions tomorrow. Please review the outline as well so that you are familiar with your child's choices and can help him or her make the best competition choice.
