It's been another busy week in the land of the Clippers! We had our first couple of girl's basketball games this week and tonight (Friday, November 5th) we will have our first wrestling meet (@ Vinton).
Once again we have a high number of kids participating in athletics. We have 22 girl's out for 7th grade basketball and 23 out for 8th grade. We also have 15 students participating in wrestling. 7th and 8th graders also have the opportunity to participate in an after school weight training class. We have 20 students participating in this.
Over the last couple of weeks we have been finishing ITBS testing. We hope to have the results before Winter Break.
For the month of November we are rotating our daily schedule. The students take their core classes in the same order each day, however they start the day with a different class each day. The reason we are doing this is to give our students and teachers the opportunity to take and teach classes at different times throughout the day. The teachers and students will provide data and feedback on this experience.
End of Trimester 1
The first trimester of the 2010-2011 school year will end on Friday, November 12.
Don't forget we will have traditional parent/teacher conferences on Monday, November 15th. The conferences will be held at the middle school from 5 to 8 pm. Please come out and meet your child's core teachers! The 6th grade teachers will be in the library. The 7th and 8th grade teachers will be in the main gymnasium.
