Making the Grade

Making the Grade in Middle School

Middle School is a time when important learning is taking place. The knowledge students gain at the Middle School builds the foundations needed to be successful at the High School and beyond! 

Attendance plays a huge factor in success in the Middle School. Coming to school on time and every day is extremely important. When students are not in the classroom, they are not learning. If they are not learning, they cannot succeed! Daily attendance is crucial to achieve success in academic classes. 

Ensuring students are engaging in reading, writing, and discussion of what is going on in their classes is extremely important. Nightly homework will reinforce the learning that is taking place within the classroom during the day. This reinforcement of learning will lead to success in the classroom.

We have 10th period for after-school academic help that runs every Monday through Thursday from 2:31-3:00 p.m. We encourage all students to stay for extra help during this time, and students who fail one or more subjects during the year are required to stay for extra help. Also available to our students is Homework Table which is offered every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:00 to 5:00 pm in which one of our teachers stays to offer extra support to our students. Transportation is provided for these extended times.

Our school website will give you access to the school calendar and upcoming events. You have access to your child's grades, attendance record, lunch account, and transportation information through the use of the Silver Creek PowerSchool Parent Portal. The access information you received last year is still valid. If you have lost or forgotten your access code, you must contact Colleen Roberts at 934-2603, ext. 1207. All Middle School homework assignments may be accessed by phone by calling the Homework Hotline at 934-2603 and following the prompts for the Middle School. 

There are scheduled parent conferences dates on the school calendar, but you may at any time call to schedule an individual conference with a teacher. 

Our goal is to make your child's middle school experience a positive and successful one! We welcome your involvement, suggestions, and encourage you to call the middle school office at ext. 1400 at any time.
