6th - 8th Grade

Morning Bell

All students are asked to stay in the playground in the morning where there is supervision.  The school bell rings at 8:25 a.m.  This bell serves two purposes.  The first purpose is middle school students are beginning class.  The second purpose is it serves as a warning bell for 1st - 5th grade students.  When the bell rings the students will have a chance to use the restroom or get a drink of water before class begins.  A whistle will be blown by yard duty and students will line up in the playground area with their class.  They will then proceed to walk to class in a quiet manner.


The focus of the District Wellness Policy is the overall health of our students. To support the District Wellness Policy, Campus Catering is offering cookies as an ala carte item for K-5 students on Friday’s only
