Middle School Parent Reps

We hope that the school year has gotten off to a great start for you and your children. It was nice to see so many of you at the annual Parents’ Association Fall Social, the first PA meeting and Back-to-School Night. We thank those who worked to bring us these great events.

October is a busy month in the Middle School, filled with sports, drama productions, student and parent social activities, and several opportunities for parents to get involved.

We hope that you will join us for the Middle School Coffee on Oct. 23 at 8:00 a.m. at the Castle. Our guest speaker will be Middle School Dean Colette Finley. The coffee is a low-key chance to chat with fellow middle school parents. For new “Sixie” parents, it’s the perfect time to mingle and ask any questions, big or small, of the Class V parents. We will also have sign-up sheets for volunteer opportunities throughout the year for anyone who is interested.

All sports teams will be in full swing in October. The Middle School Social/Friday Night Lights on Oct. 24 are not to be missed. The varsity field hockey team and the varsity boys soccer team will play Lawrence Academy under the lights. Go Bulldogs!

Also note, on game days, some middle school teams surprise each other during school with a small, secret “psych” gift (e.g., candy bar, small baked good or other treat). Make sure to ask your child if she or he has a secret psych buddy.

Lastly, Halloween is a Friday this year, and for those who are new, students are encouraged to dress up in costume, however, no group costumes are permitted.
Below you will find a comprehensive list of important dates for October.
