Park Place Middle School
Welcome to Park Place Middle School - home of the Pumas!
October 1, 2015
Dear Puma Families –
We have just wrapped up our first month of 2015-16! October brings the cooler temperatures
and students are in the routine of learning! Our fall conferences happen the week of Oct 26– 30th. Please plan to attend. This is a great opportunity to touch base with all the teachers of
your child(ren) to discuss their learning and current progress. Stay tuned for more details such
as times and specific conference days.
September was “National School Attendance Month”. Please remember to contact the school
to excuse any absence your child may have. There are three main ways to excuse an absence:
1) Bring a note to the Main Office (notes delivered to individual teachers may not may make
it’s way to the main office, 2) Call the attendance hotline and leave a message at 360-804 4301
(make sure to leave the student’s full name, grade, and date (s) absent, and 3) on Family
Access. A reminder call goes out to families of students in the evening if a student has an unexcused absence.
Please support consistent attendance at school. School success goes hand in hand with good
attendance! If your child seems reluctant to go to school, please contact a counselor,
administrator, school nurse, or even a teacher to seek a solution. If your child is absent please
work with their teacher (s) to make sure they have an opportunity to learn and make up
missing work. Park Place has extended learning opportunities before and after school to get
assistance. Also, use of the student agenda is helpful in tracking both daily and long-term
On a final note, on October
15th at 7:00 pm in the Park Place
Library the most updated
information will be shared about
our remodeling project. This will
include our most up to date information about the school design and the construction plans.
Thank you for your continued partnership with Park Place!

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.
