This post is to inform our families of a recent change to the school calendar.
Over the past several years the middle school has been working to improve the transition for students from the elementary school to the middle school. Our work in this area has been motivated by the challenges our 6th grade students and parents have shared with us in previous years.
In an effort to address the struggles of our students and to make the middle school a positive environment for learning we have implemented a 6th Grade First Day.
This year the middle school will hold our first 6th Grade First Day on Monday, August 20th. This means that the first day of school for 6th grade students, and any new to district 7th and 8th graders, will be Monday, August 20th. The first day of school for 7th and 8th grade students will be Tuesday, August 21st.
The purpose of the 6th Grade First Day is to allow 6th graders, as well as, new to district students to get exposed to the building schedule, expectations, processes/procedures, and to begin building positive relationships with our staff.
To our incoming 6th grade students and new students- we cannot wait to welcome you to the middle school. To our 7th and 8th grade students, you get one more day to sleep in before having another great year at Cloverleaf Middle School!
Just a quick reminder of important times for our school day:
- 7:00 AM building doors open
- 7:20 AM bell to release students to their lockers
- 7:25 AM bell to release students to their Homerooms
- 7:30 AM tardy bell.
- 2:36 PM end of day
