monthly newsletter.jpg

Principal Smedley is very excited to provide the monthly Middle Years News Letter for parents.

The purpose of the newsletter is to show parents how to improve their children's school success- and behavior-during the middle years. 

Middle grade children go through dramatic changes and desperately need their parents’ support. Many parents want to help, but aren’t sure what to do. With Middle Years, this will provide you with articles that will help:

  • understand their middle graders’ behavior
  • build respect, responsibility, empathy, and more
  • support homework and study skills
  • stay involved—middle-school style
  • set age-appropriate rules and expectations
  • promote health and safety
  • emphasize the importance of education
