MS Daily Announcements

What’s happening at the Middle School today?

Friday, May 20, 2022

Today is an A-Friday.

And what happens on Fridays?  Mr. Duell wears a tie designed especially for him by one of you.  Today’s spectacular tie was designed by Riley Flanagan, grade 6. Thanks so much for this great tie.

The end of the school year is fast approaching.  In June all students will be asked to return the combination lock and any textbooks assigned to you this school year.  Please start checking your lockers and at home for your lock and books to avoid any replacement fees for missing items.

​​An important announcement from the library:  With the end of the year approaching, some library policies are changing. Starting Monday, May 23rd, if you have overdue books, you won’t be able to borrow any until your books are returned, so please bring them back!

Attention 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls interested in playing tennis next fall.  There will be an interest meeting on Tuesday, May 24th during activity period in the back gym.  Please see Coach Leggieri with any questions.

Next Thursday the Chinese Club will be making dumplings in room 105. All are welcome. If interested, please sign on on the sheet outside room 227. 

Montage Photo Request REMINDER:  Photos Needed By May 22, 2022

The PTA is collecting photos to create the Photo Montage that will have all 8th grade students.  They are looking for photos that show how much fun they’ve had in their middle school years!  This might include pictures where they are busy with friends, playing sports, involved with clubs, scouts, field trips, concerts, birthday parties, dances, etc. Pictures should be from their middle school years only.

Feel free to submit more than one photo (up to 5 photos), especially group photos of students. Please follow the directions below for submitting photos:

      • To submit digital photos (jpegs are best – no screenshots, please), rename each file to include the names of the students that appear in the picture (i.e. John Doe, Suzi Black, Jimmy Ford). Please rename photos BEFORE uploading. We have a class list and will be checking off each student as we receive pictures. We want to be sure that we have everyone included

Our 8th Grade Recognition Ceremony will be held Friday, June 17th.  Full details will be provided at a later date.  Please find information about program dedications using this link. Dedication submissions and ALL forms of payments are due by Monday, June 6th.

O’Rourke families: Our PTA is in need of a Vice President for a 2 year term! No experience needed. We work as a team! Please reach out with any questions or interest! Please contact Danielle Lanigan at

Enjoy your day!
