We are now in the third quarter of the school year and students should now be accustomed to the routines of using their planner and completing assignments. Overall, it is an essential middle school responsibility for students to take full accountability of all assignments. Therefore, after careful consideration sixth grade teachers have decided that late work will no longer be accepted. If you have any questions and concerns, please feel free to call us at 535-2580. Thank you for your cooperation and support.
