Dear Families in the Middle,

We are seeking feedback from our families about communication here in the middle.
Please take 3 minutes to complete the Google Survey to let us know your preferences and to offer specific suggestions for improving our communication. Your feedback will help our team determine next steps to improve our communication. Thank you!

The drive to my daughter's campus this past Sunday was breath-taking! No matter how many autumns I experience, I am still in awe of the beautiful colors and aromas of this season. Second only to spring in my preferred seasons of change, I marvel at the changes that occur as a result of less daylight, cooler temperatures, and changing soil conditions. Similarly, serving as principal in-the-middle, I marvel at the changes that occur over three years...as a result of innovative teachers, kind and collaborative peers, and supportive and challenging teams (students and adults). The result is a bit like driving down I94 near Knapp...SPECTACULAR!

A few red maples, golden oaks, and bright yellow birch trees...
The Lego League - 15 students initiating a cell phone recycling program, advised by Ms. Bray
Mrs. Bee's 8th grade students - learning in a "personalized" approach
Ms. Mueller's Health students - teaching HER how to use Google Classroom
Mr. Chukel's Math students - tracking their progress and self-assessing in math
Mrs. Root's Band students - clarifying what it means to be prepared for collaboration in band

Our first Student Council planned Dance of the year is scheduled for Friday, October 30, 6 - 8 PM. Please plan to come in to the multi-purpose room / gymnasium / cafeteria if you pick your child up before 8 PM.  $5 admission - $4 for students bringing a Food Shelf item for the Stuff-a-Truck Kickoff! Items will be credited to grade-levels and houses; Stuff-a-Truck runs through the 13th.Snacks/Refreshments will be sold in the cafeteria during the dance. Please assure your student follows our school dress code (no hats, face-paint, or masks); however, dressing up in their favorite Halloween costume is encouraged! 

Stay tuned for more highlights and bright spots in this colorful array of learning here in the middle!

In awe,
Mrs. Ann Mitchell
