Middle School Reminders

Dear ISB Middle School Parents-

It’s a cold and dark time of the year, but ISB Middle School is busy as ever and we are moving ahead enthusiastically with exciting learning each day.  A few announcements and reminders:

  • Marie Alcock will be offering a parent presentation on Brain-Based Learning on Wed, January 23, at 6:30 pm in the MPR. What does the latest brain research tell us about how students learn best? This session explores some of the brain research available and presents the connections to curriculum and instruction. Participants will look at literacy development in the brain, how to teach comprehension directly to the brain, and what is different about brains today, and the impact on curriculum designs.
  • We are now in the winter cold and flu season.  Quite a number of students are out sick today.  We would ask that you keep students home if they have a fever and not let them return to school until the fever has been gone for 24 hours with no fever-reducing medication.  This will help minimize the exposure of healthy students to those who are contagious.
  • One Day is a special day when students pursue their own innovative learning goals.  They will exhibit their work on February 1 from 10am to 11am, throughout the halls and classrooms of the Middle School.  Parents are invited to attend and enjoy the wide range of projects presented.
  • Middle School students who do not have a supervised after-school activity should go home at 3:30pm each day (2:30 on Wednesdays).  For safety and supervision reasons, Middle School students without an activity are not permitted to stay at school to do homework, play games, hang out with friends, etc.  If students do have an activity and are required to wait for the activity to start or for their ride to arrive, then they should wait in the MS/HS Cafeteria or Library.  We would ask that parents help us with this policy which is designed to keep students safe in the afternoons.

Thanks for trusting and partnering with ISB for the education of your Middle School child!
