Central Campus News and Notes

Dear Central Middle Parents:

We are excited to start a GREAT new school year this Monday, August 22, 2016.

1) Most of you are aware that we use the Jupiter Grades database for all grading, attendance and parent communication.  In an effort to ensure that we have all of the correct contact information in this database, we ask that you please update your settings and contact information for all parents including phone numbers and email addresses.  You may also indicate your preferences of grade and attendance notifications.  This is extremely important as all Interim Reports and grades, as well a school events are communicated via this Jupiter Grades database.

2) One additional request to help support our school-wide reading initiative, please ensure that your child(ren) bring a book of their choice to school to read each day for Sustained Silent Reading (SSR).  They are asked to start bringing their book on the first day of school and every day after.

3) Finally, our Language Arts teachers have requested an additional supply, a plastic colored duo tang folder with pockets and 3-prongs:
                    6th Graders: Yellow
                    7th Graders: Blue
                    8th Graders: Red

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
