All Star Announcements!
Dear Parents, February 1, 2010
Your child has completed the first half of his/her sixth grade year at McKinley Middle Charter School! Now that your student has settled into their middle school routine, it is our expectation that they be held accountable for their academic work as well as their behavior in and out of the classroom. On Monday January 25th, the All Star teachers held a meeting with the entire team of students to review rules, procedures, and academic expectations. Our job now, is to prepare your child for seventh grade where they need to be more independent and responsible. While our expectations have not changed during the year, consequences and rewards have been put into place to help your student recognize their personal responsibilities and ensure compliance with school rules and routines.Expectations for Second Semester
