Hello Hidden River Families,

Parents and families … welcome to Fall! As we head into the 2nd month of the school year, one of the main things on our radar is keeping close attention to students that may be having a slow start or not
having the level of success that we had hoped they would. As such, please note that Parent/Teacher
Conferences are Tuesday, October 28th and Wednesday, October 29th … both days after school
from 12:30 - 3:30 and 5:30 - 7:30. This is a great opportunity to come in and meet with your child's teachers, checking on their progress and learning about how you can better support them at home. We highly encourage you to attend. If you cannot make it on either of those two dates, you always have the option of contacting the teachers directly to set up another time where you can meet to discuss the progress of your child.

As I've mentioned before, we have several safety nets in place to make sure students don’t fall through the cracks. One very successful approach we used last year, on a small scale, was to have willing parent/community volunteers in classrooms, supporting our teachers, working with small groups of students, etc. If this is something you'd be interested in, please let me know and I will find a
place for you to help out. Like we do so well in elementary school, I want to encourage parents to be involved here in middle school, so please don't hesitate to ask how you can help.

We also started Study Club this week … after school from 2:20 - 3:20, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please encourage your child to stay if they need extra time or help working on assignments, test, projects, etc. There is a bus that will pick them up at 3:20, take the kids over to Maltby Elementary, and then students from the Maltby area get on their normal bus home from there. The students from town will jump on Bus Route #281 which takes them back to Monroe and drops them off at Frank Wagner Elementary around 3:45 pm. Study Club is just one more way we are working to help all students be successful

Finally, please join us in celebrating National Bullying Prevention Month. Our theme is "The end of bullying begins with me" and we have several activities and hi-lighted messages for the students this month, focusing their attention on the importance of addressing bullying behavior and working together to stamp it out completely here at school. The students have responded well so far and have
banded together to prevent bullying … we are proud of them for taking a stand!

Thanks again, parents and families, for your continued support. GO HAWKS!

Important Notice About Internet Safety

The best way to protect children from online harm is to keep computers in a family area of the home. Visibility allows parents to look over the students' shoulders without being too oppressive. Young children should have a parental chaperone whenever they are on the Internet. Two sites that discuss these issues and offer advice can be found at www.safekids.com and www.safeteens.com.

Hyperlinks to staff web sites (located on the Staff page) are provided for student and parent convenience, and all staff web sites are hosted by external Internet service providers. Monroe Public Schools assumes no liability for content contained on external service provider sites. Filtering software from one of the providers listed below is recommended to prevent unauthorized access to sites beyond the District's control.
