 Hello Junior High Families!

 

Can you believe the summer is already winding down?! We are all working hard in preparation for the new school year and very excited to get started! I wanted to mention a few important dates:

 

Monday, August 19th (6:00 pm to 7:30 pm) – Grades 7 to 12 Open House
Wednesday, August 21st – First day of school!
Monday, September 2nd – No School

 

A major point of emphasis leading into the new school year is for all students to get involved with at least one extracurricular activity. Research tells us that students who get involved with extracurricular activities have greater academic success in the classroom.  Please use Open House as a time to discuss with school staff about opportunities for your child. You can also check out our main website for more information on MCA clubs and activities: http://www.mca.k12.pa.us/wp/clubs-and-activities/

 

A reminder that we send home progress reports (every 3 weeks) with our students. Please keep in constant contact with your child’s teacher either by email, check the Student Information System (SIS) or by phone. Let me know if I can help facilitate that process.

 

Yours in education,
Pete Cheddar
Junior High Principal
