Each month, I plan to publish a newsletter that will be sent out to parents. In each newsletter, you will find the following:
Highlights of some of the activities and accomplishments at PRMS during the month
A section called Food for Thought that will give you suggested resources to review related to some aspect of having a middle school student.
We wanted to highlight the hard work of our student government. While this has certainly been a unique year, Mrs. Kelly and Mrs. Harris-Crowe have continued to meet with our student leaders, and the results have been amazing. In December, a few of our student government leaders posted a video reading Snowmen at Nightby Carole Bruehner, which was passed on to be shown at our elementary schools. Even from a distance, PRMS students are still making a positive impact on our community.
Food for Thought:
As we return to hybrid instruction on January 25th, we wanted to share a few tips for returning to our hybrid schedule.
Have your child update their planner. Marking the days when they will be in school and when they will be virtual along with whether it is an A week or a B week will help them get back into the routine of school.
While they are still virtual, have your child sit in a space that resembles a school environment like a kitchen table or a desk. If they are used to laying down during virtual learning, they may have a hard time finding the endurance to get through a day when they’re expected to sit up and move from class to class again.
Practice getting up at the regular time for starting school. Students may have gotten used to sleeping in a little bit because of virtual learning. Don’t let the first day back of in-school learning be a surprise by how early they have to get out of bed to make it to school on time.
