December Letter from the Principal

Dear Parent/Guardian:

During this school year, we have utilized and been working on different ways to improve the communication with our students and parents.  In order to help with the improvement of communication, we have created a new school website and a school Twitter account.  Both the website and the Twitter account will be used to communicate information, to highlight the school events taking place, and to celebrate the accomplishments of our students.

The address for our new school website is  As you may already know, our PTA website communicates information to you as part of our parent community.  This website is linked to our new school website, and the information will displayed in both places.  In addition, you can follow us on Twitter at MS67Q (@MiddleSchool67Q).  Our Twitter feed is also streaming on our website.  We will be looking over time to improve our school website and to increase the usage of our Twitter account.

In addition, quarterly exams for the second quarter will be administered according to the following schedule:

Monday, January 9, 2017 (Spanish)
Tuesday, January 10, 2017 (Science)
Wednesday, January 11, 2017 (Social Studies)
Thursday, January 12, 2017 (Mathematics)
Friday, January 13, 2017 (ELA)

It is important to note that each quarterly exam for this quarter and beyond will only count as one test grade toward a student’s subject average.  This adjustment was approved by the teaching staff and the members of the School Leadership Team at their December meeting.

Finally, I would like to wish you all a happy holiday season and New Year! I am looking forward to continuing our work together in 2017.  Thank you for your continued support.
