What's Happening


From the Principal's Office:
Good Afternoon Middle School Parents and Families,

Happy Monday and welcome back from the weekend! I’m sure that everyone is a bit on the “tired side” what with the spring time change. Although I enjoyed the extra day light last night, I missed seeing the sun when I drove to work this morning!

Breakfast Burritos for PRIDE Slips:
As always, we are constantly looking for new and exciting ways to motivate our students and reward them for good behavior. Starting this Friday, we will be doing a weekly PRIDE Slip drawing for breakfast burritos. Here’s how it will work:

Each Friday, the front office will draw a 6th grader, a 7th grader, and an 8th grader from the PRIDE slips turned in that week. The students who are drawn will receive a breakfast burrito. So…..if your child likes breakfast burritos, please encourage them to work hard, do their best, and exhibit their best behavior so that they can receive PRIDE slips and an opportunity to win a breakfast burrito.

Volunteers Needed for Spring Events:

The Middle School is hosting 2 track meets this spring and we would love to include parent volunteers as we run these events. Please note the following dates:

                -March 15            (Track)                  3:30 p.m.

                -April 19               (Track)                  3:30 p.m.

Platte Valley HS is also hosting 3 track meets this spring and is looking for volunteers to help. Our HS students and staff always provide a tremendous amount of support at our track meets, so I would love to return the favor and provide them with help. Please note the following HS track dates:

                -March 14            (HS Track)            3:30 p.m.

                -April 21               (HS Track)            All day (Saturday)

                -May 11-12          (HS Track)            Friday afternoon and Saturday

I am always so appreciative of the tremendous support that we receive from the community as well as the many occasions when parents ask if there are more opportunities to get involved. If you have availability on the above mentioned days and would like to help out, please contact MS Activities Director Dan Melendrez at 970-336-8610. Thank you in advance for all of your help!

8th Grade Field Trip to Elitches on May 11:
On Friday, May 11, the 8th grade class will be traveling to Elitches in Denver for an end-of-year 8th grade celebration. We have been taking this trip for many years as a way to reward our 8th graders for their 3 years as middle school students and to help them celebrate their transition to the high school.

Because this trip is considered a reward, we have a number of eligibility requirements in place. (Please see below):

1. Students must be academically eligible to attend.

2. Eligible students must not have any major office referrals (category 2 or greater) during 4th quarter. 

3. Students who receive 4 or more folder pulls during 4th quarter will NOT be eligible.

Every 8th grade teacher has gone over the eligibility criteria with our 8th grade students so everyone knows what is required. If you have any questions about the 8th grade trip or its eligibility requirements, please contact me at 970-336-8610.

That should cover it all for now. Thank you for taking the time to read this very lengthy update. As always, thank you for everything that you do for our students and for our school. Have a great day and a great week!

                                          STUDENT DROP OFF
Parents please utilize the drop off lanes when dropping off students unless you are planning to walk them to their building. Students are being dropped off in the parking lot which is creating a dangerous situation as they walk across the lanes of traffic. If you are walking your child to their school, please use the cross walk.
