Penn Middle School Families,

 I hope your summer has been relaxing and enjoyable thus far.  Before we know it, we will be starting the 2017-2018 school year.  As we move into August and get closer to the beginning of school, please be aware of some important dates and events:

 Thursday, August 3rd - Schedules Live!

Student schedules will be posted on PowerSchool at 4 pm.  Please keep in mind that often it is necessary, due to class sizes or conflicts, to modify schedules. Student schedules are not final until we begin school on the 24th.

Wednesday, August 9th - Orientation

6th-grade student orientation will be held in the auditorium at 6:30 pm.  The program will have two 45-minute sessions. The first session is an introduction to middle school with parents and students. During the second session, students will tour the building with student council representatives. As the students are touring the school, I will meet with parents about what to expect during the middle school years. We suggest younger siblings do not attend the orientation.

 In case you are on vacation on the 9th, there will be a make-up orientation on August 16th at 10 am.

 Students will be permitted to tour the building on August 10, 14, 15, 16, & 17 from 9 am to 3 pm. There will not be any guides provided on these days.

 School Supplies

A list of suggested supplies is on the main page of the Penn Middle Website.

 Thursday, August 24th - First Day

First Student Day.  Breakfast will be available starting at 7:45 am for those students wanting to purchase it.  Homeroom late bell is at 8:00 am as students are responsible for being on time.

 Have a great rest of the summer!
