Classroom Happenings

Welcome 8th Grade class of 2019!

1. Donations for needy families

2. Letters of Recommendation

    We are happy to write a letter of recommendation for any student who needs a letter as part of their high school application.

    We encourage students to request a letter of recommendation from their teacher as soon as they are aware they need one. This will ensure that the letters reach the high school prior to the application deadline.

    For printed letters of recommendation, students should deliver the letter to the teacher with an addressed and stamped envelope. The teachers will then seal and mail the letter to the addressed high school.

    For online letters of recommendation, be sure to follow the high school's instructions and e-mail the appropriate link to the teacher. Be sure to request a letter of recommendation in person prior to sending the link in an

    Attention Parents,

This year we are introducing a peanut and nut free table in the cafeteria. Please be advised it is not mandatory that your child sit here but they do have the option. If you would like your child to sit at this table please let your child’s homeroom teacher know. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you!

7. Dear Middle School Parents and Guardians,

On Tuesday, October 2nd, the middle school students met with Dr. Chiarelli and middle school faculty in the gym to discuss proper school etiquette. Today’s meeting was a follow-up to a previous meeting at the beginning of the school year. However, it was determined by Dr. Chiarelli and middle school teachers that these meetings will occur on a monthly basis until deemed unecessary. Students were complimented on greeting teachers in the hallway respectfully and requesting permission before leaving the classroom. The following topics were reviewed with the middle school:

  • Students are expected to remain quiet and attentive during morning and afternoon announcements and prayers, regardless of location (i.e. in the hallway). Students were given the responsibility of reminding younger grades of the proper behaviors expected of them during morning and afternoon announcements and prayers.

  • Dr. Chiarelli clarified to female students that leggings are still permitted; however, if worn, they are required to wear a top of appropriate length.

  • Students were reminded that cell phone use is prohibited on school grounds unless a teacher grants permission.  

  • Students were reminded of uniform code (i.e. belts, tucked in shirts, tied shoelaces)

  • Students were reminded of utilizing a professional and respectful format when emailing teachers

  • Students were also reminded that if there are any adjustments to their usual dismissal, the office must be notified (i.e. going home with a friend, being picked up instead of riding the bus, a relative picking them instead of the expected guardian)

Lastly, students were given the opportunity to ask any questions or voice any concerns they had.
