6-8 Middle School
Principal's message week of April 24th, 2017:
Greetings Middle School Students and Families,
As the we close out the month of April, I want to encourage all of our young scholars to finish the school year strong by attending school everyday on time and ready to learn. All students need to be on time to school at 7:50 each morning. Starting on May 1st, students who have two or more unexcused tardies in the same week will earn an after school detention. If you know that your child is going to be late, please call the office ahead of time so that the tardy is not marked unexcused. It is our responsibility to ensure that our students are on time to school and ready to learn each day. Thank you for your continued support.
Additionally, I would like to invite you and your child to attend an open forum regarding potential changes in the dress code for the 2017 - 2018 school year on Tuesday, April 25th from 5:30 - 6:30 in the high school library. At this meeting, we will be discussing options for a 6-12 grade dress code for next year. As a valued partner in your child’s education, we hope you will be able to attend this meeting to make your opinion heard.
Other upcoming Tapestry Middle School events include:
Tapestry’s first ever Meat Raffle will take place on Friday, April 28, 2017 from 6:00 - 10:00 PM in the High School Cafeteria. It is $5 per ticket or $35 to reserve a table for 8. Tickets are available in the main office. In addition to various meat cuts, we will also have seafood being raffled, 50/50's and a chinese auction.
The New York State Mathematics assessment will take place from Tuesday, May 4 - Thursday, May 6. Students will take exams for approximately one hour each day. Students will receive a coupon for a treat by meeting the HOW learning targets during assessment time each day. As we did for ELA testing, we will be providing a party for each grade level with at least 95% student participation!
Thank you for your active participation in your child’s education and for supporting the Tapestry community.
