2019-2020 Back to School Information

Summer days are flying by, and the 6th grade team is really looking forward to welcoming a new group of 6th graders to Meridian Middle School! I hope everyone has had a fun and relaxing break.

Registration for returning students will take place in the MHS Great Hall on Tuesday, August 6. Come any time between 10:00 am – 6:00 pm. Your child will receive his or her schedule that will also include locker assignments. This is a great opportunity to try out the combination a few times! 

Chromebook Orientation for both 6th grade parents and students is scheduled for Tuesday, August 13. This event is mandatory and will take place in the Auditorium at 7:00 pm. Chromebooks will be provided to students that evening.

The first day of student attendance is Friday, August 16. This is a 1:30 pm dismissal for MMS/MHS students. If they have not done so by the first day, students should bring their school supplies. The following supplies will be collected during study hall – loose-leaf paper (2 packs), ream of white copy paper, glue sticks, dry erase markers, ultra fine Sharpie marker, scotch tape refill, and Kleenex. 

As 6th grade team leader, I will send out a “6th Grade Weekly Update” email every Friday. This is a cumulative email from the 6th grade team that will include MMS important information and events, a summary of what is taking place in each classroom, upcoming tests, quizzes, projects, etc. It is a great way to help both parents and students transition from the elementary school. To make sure I have the correct email saved for your household, please respond to this email (mcguirem@meridianhawks.net) and also include any other email (work or additional parent) that you would like included. I will not add your email to the list if you do not respond. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about 6th grade. The sixth grade team is eager to help make the transition to MMS as smooth as possible! 🙂
