Materials Swap

We will be holding a materials swap the week of June 8th.  We will be emptying hall, gym and band lockers and labeling/bagging all contents. During the swap, we request that you bring any school issued textbooks and/or library books.  Please place them in your trunk and we will remove them when we place the locker bags in your trunk.  The materials swap will be no contact and you will remain in your car.

Materials Swap Schedule:

Monday, June 8th: 6th and 7th grade from 8:30am - 1pm.

Tuesday, June 9th: 8th grade from 8:30am - 12:00pm.

Tuesday, June 9th: all grades 4:30-6pm.

Thursday, June 11th: 6th, 7th, and 8th grade from 8:30am- 1pm. 

-If you are unable to come during these times, we will hold on to items until August.

8th graders: We’d like to invite all 8th grade parents and students to come to Materials Swap on Tuesday June 9th at 8:30 – 12pm.  Following the same traffic pattern, we’d like to make it an 8th grade parade. We’d love it if you decorated your cars! While you must remain in your vehicles throughout in recognition of safety concerns, it’s important that we recognize a significant step in our 8th graders’ lives.

 Classwork and Homework RequestHomework

As we approach the holiday and flu season, the best way to keep

students engaged in learning and their grades soaring when they miss school is to request missed classwork and homework.  It’s simple, just follow these easy steps:

  • Communicate with teachers; email is always the best option.  Staff email directory
  • Classwork and homework can also be requested through the main office by calling 586-574-3175.  Please allow the teachers and staff at least 24 hours to prepare your request. 
  • Pick up the work request from the main office (after 24 hours).
  • Return all completed work to the classroom teachers.

For shorter absences, such as missing just one day, it is always best to communicate with teachers directly.
