• Middle School is exhilarating for our children.  It is a a time of great mental, physical and social-emotional growth.  It is important to consider all three aspects of our students' development in the classroom.  We welcome parent and family participation and hope everyone realizes how critical it is to be involved at this time in your children's lives.  Some students embrace this time of transition while others tend to be a little more introverted, really take the changes to heart, and require a little more time adjusting.  Parents can comfort their children and reassure them that they will face this time together.  As a parent, it is sometimes difficult to know just what level of involvement is needed.  Middle School students have a need to become more independent while at the same time depending on their parents to guide them in their growth.  They continue to look to you for guidance no matter how hard they seem to be trying to push you away.  Continue to instill in your child that set of core values we all need to be successful in life; compassion, honesty, respect, integrity and fairness.
