Welcome to Park Place Middle School - home of the Pumas!

June 11, 2015

Hello Park Place Families,

I would like to begin by thanking our community for passing the recent Monroe
School District construction bond measure. Because of the support of our
community the Park Place students in the next few years will be moving into a
beautiful new facility that will allow us to address the diverse learning needs of our students. In the past few weeks we identified a committee of approximately 12 staff members who have begun meeting with the architects who will be designing the school. In our meetings we have been working to design a school that will support and even enhance our students’ learning. By the spring of 2016 our committee will have identified a school design that will meet our current and future instructional needs. I would anticipate that the actual construction of the building will begin sometime in June 2016. Next year I will make an effort to provide frequent updates on the construction project so that you will be aware of the progress that is being made on this wonderful gift that our community provided for our students.

This coming August we will be offering a summer academic jumpstart program for
our current sixth and seventh grade students. This program will focus upon
providing students who struggle academically in the areas of reading and math an early academic jumpstart. Our program is scheduled to run August 3rd through the 7th and August 10th through August 14th and will operate from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm each day. There is additional information about this program included in this newsletter. After reading the information about the program if you still have questions, please contact Ms. Hilson at (360) 804-4300.

To all of our families I would like to say thank you for welcoming me to Park Place
this year. I have enjoyed my first year and having the opportunity to get to know
your children and some of you. I am pleased with what we were able to accomplish this year and I am excited about what the future holds for Park Place.

I want to close by wishing you and your family a safe, relaxing and enjoyable
summer. I hope that you will find the time to enjoy the wonderful weather and
being outside with your family. I will look forward to seeing you on September 8th which is the date that we have scheduled our Back to School Bash. Have a fantastic summer!

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.
