Final Week Details
We have finally come to the end of a very “unique” school year! We have encountered so many things that we normally do not during a regular year. We have experienced a worldwide pandemic which kept all students home. Forces of nature have slowed us down twice; forest fire smoke coming all of the way into the city and an ice storm. Finally, we made a major shift when we began to have students return to the building. During this turbulent year, it is my hope that your family has weathered the multiple storms and you are happy and healthy as we move forward into summer!
CLASSES NEXT WEEK
School will use our regular hybrid schedule Monday-Wednesday. The only day that is different is Thursday. All students will have classes online Thursday. There will not be in-person classes at school that day.
Classes will also be shorter Thursday. The schedule is as follows:
Period 5, 10:00-10:25 AM
Period 6, 10:30-10:55 AM
Period 7, 11:00-11:25 AM
Period 8, 11:30-11:55 AM.
8TH GRADE PARADE!
All 8th grade students and their families are invited to come to our drive-through parade to celebrate the end of their middle school years. Cars can enter the west driveway (the one closest to 122nd Avenue) and staff will be in the bus turn around to greet, wave to, and celebrate all 8th graders. This event is on Thursday, June 17th, from 4:00-6:00 PM. (If any 8th grade student is unable to get a ride, they are invited to walk or ride a bike to school during that time.) We hope to see all 8th graders there!
Any 8th grader who is not going to 9th Grade Counts this summer needs to return their Chromebook and the power cord. There are 3 opportunities to do so. Chromebooks can be returned during the 8th grade parade on Thursday, June 17th, from 4:00-6:00 PM; Friday, June 18th, 8:00 AM-12:30 PM; and Monday, June 21, 8:00 AM-3:00 PM.
Sixth and seventh grade students who are returning to Alice Ott Middle School next year do not have to turn in their chromebook. They will be able to use the same device next school year.
There are still some band and orchestra instruments that must be returned! Please bring them to school as soon as possible so the teachers can take inventory and deal with cleaning and storing the instruments before they are gone for the summer. Also please return any borrowed cumberbunds and ties.
Sixth graders who picked up a social studies book to use at home this year should return it as soon as possible.
Ms. Moe has passed out a novel, “Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry” and it should be returned. it is an orange book.
Mrs. Christensen loaned out some headphones. If you still them, please bring them back next week.
If you purchased a yearbook they will be passed out next week. Students in Cohorts A and B will get their yearbook on the last day they are scheduled to attend school; Tuesday, June 15th, for Cohort A and Wednesday, June 16th, for Cohort B. Eighth grade students can pick up their yearbook during the parade on Thursday, June 17th. After that, anyone who ordered one can come pick it up beginning next Friday, June 18th, in the front office. There are still a few yearbooks available for sale, and they cost $12 and can be purchased in the office.
