Middle School Newsletter 

Monday, January 4, 2021

Welcome to 2021!  We hope this finds you well and ready to take on a promising new year.  We are so excited to be back to school and to welcome some new students into our TVM community.  As we get back into the swing of things, we want to extend a huge thank you to all of you who have supported us through thick and thin during this ever-changing time.  We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to carry on with business more than many other schools and states.

Please help us start off the New Year and grading period by ensuring that your child has all the necessary supplies for school.  If you haven’t had a chance to replenish basic supplies such as: pencils, glue sticks, colored pencils, a basic calculator (7th/8th grade math), pens and a PLANNER, please do so at your earliest convenience.  Due to Covid, students are not able to share or borrow supplies this year. For those of you who are new to TVM, a detailed supply list is posted below.

Just a reminder that morning drop off is 7:45 am and students must be picked up by 3:30 pm. Their is a new drop off and pick up procedure for Ms. Stephanie’s homeroom. From now on, all parents must enter the parent pick up line in the north parking lot and drive around to the south lot to drop off/pick up your student. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Here is a glimpse of what to expect this week…

Social Studies

Before the break students spent quite some time researching any topic of their choice that they wanted to learn more about. They could choose how they wanted to present it to the class. Among some of their choices were to make a Google Slide presentation, create a game, write a song or poem about it, or simply make a poster. Students will be presenting their projects to their classmates this week.

Language Arts

All classwork and homework are posted in Google Classroom and should also be written in your child’s planner.  We will continue to research and write about teen advocacy in our Informational Writing Unit of Study.    I am proud to announce that our middle school students are reading more than ever.  We dedicate time daily to independent reading and its time well spent and enjoyed by all.  We will begin new book clubs next week. [email protected]

Science and Science Fair

Just another quick reminder that Science STEM Fair is due January 15th. The largest portion that will need to be completed upon arrival back on January 5th is the data collection and/or the working prototype. Of course, most students will understand how to work ahead, so I encourage them to do so! There are NO POSTER BOARDS due this year. Every aspect will be presented through the slide show the kids have been working on for months.

I truly look forward to seeing the new inventions and the new discoveries. As always, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or needed advice.   [email protected]

Volleyball News

A brief mandatory volleyball meeting will be held on Thursday, January 7th.  Interested students (boys and girls) must sign up as a walker and will dismiss to Founders Park.  Parents, please pick up your student at the volleyball court (next to the playground) at Founders Park at 4:15.  Tryouts will begin on Tuesday, January 12. If there is enough boy interest to form a co-team, we will do so. Direct any questions to [email protected]

Important Upcoming Events

Monday, January 18 – No School MLK Day
Friday, January 15 – Spelling Bee  – All middle school students MUST participate in the Spelling Bee! Five students from each group will move on to the finals.

Suggestions for Virtual Learning:

It will be essential for you and your child to designate a clean and organized area for each individual child for classwork. DO NOT USE A BEDROOM AREA! This should include a charging station, a computer, writing essentials and ear phones. Math will need a white board, if possible, to work out any problems or scratch paper.

Create a weekly calendar that each child can see. Post the schedule on the wall near the child’s work space. Reduce TV and internet distractions and stick to your schedule. The day should always be structured with a consistent work time with a consistent schedule that works best for your family. Starting the day with Yoga or Meditation will be helpful to focus everyone. We recommend Headspace at  https://www.headspace.com which is a free app that has been used in class, as well as Yoga with Adriene at www.youtube.com, another free app. Having an area for your child which is easily accessible is important.

Do not forget to add physical education to your schedule. Outside time is essential for all children and adults! Play basketball, soccer, ride bikes, play any game that gets you moving.
