Eblast from the Head of Middle School, 10/25

Dear Middle School Families,
Friday marks the last day of Quarter one and I expect students are excited to share their progress with you. They have worked very hard this quarter adjusting to several changes whether they returned to school or remained distanced. Remember that these are progress grades, not final semester grades. There are still several weeks remaining for them to continue their progress and finalize their grades for the end of semester one on January 22. Progress reports will be sent home November 10.
Parent Association Fall Fundraiser
Make sure to keep your eye out for the Fall Wreath Fundraiser packets that are coming your way. The fundraiser begins this month, and proceeds will go to supporting Palm Valley students. Thank you in advance for your participation. All orders and payments are due back to Palm Valley by October 26th.
Halloween
Although it may look different this year, we are still encouraging our students to wear their costumes to school on Friday, October 30th! Faculty and staff have chosen a theme, and we are looking forward to seeing the students' faces when they see us dressed up. We will be having small classroom celebrations in Advisory, with fun activities instead of our typical costume parade. All costumes must be school appropriate. Inappropriate costumes include excessive blood or weapons, and clothing that is too revealing.
Family Drive-In Movie Night
Our fabulous Parent Association is holding a Family Drive-In Movie Night on November 7th! Each car has an entry fee of $40, and the movie showing is Incredibles 2! The venue will open at 4:30 pm, and the movie will start at 6:00 pm. Go to this link to get more info and to purchase your Car Pass!

Lost Items
Labeling your student’s items is a great way for us to ensure that any lost article can be returned to the rightful owner. I currently have a collection of water bottles with lovely stickers decorating them, but no name on the bottles for me to locate their owner. As the weather cools, I fear the same will begin happening with our student’s outerwear!

Upcoming Dates:
10/26 - Fall Wreath packets due
10/30 - Last Day of Quarter 1 
11/7 - Family Drive-In Night
11/10 - Progress Reports sent home
11/11 - Veteran’s Day - School in session

Best,
Mrs. Mulé
