Park Place Middle School
Welcome to Park Place Middle School - home of the Pumas!
June 16, 2016
We often hear from families at this time of year about suggestions for continued learning over
the summer. As you know, students can often lose out on academic gains made during the
school year over the two months of summer vacation. Just last week, a librarian from the Monroe
Branch of the Sno-Isle Library systems spoke with our students regarding summer supports.
There are reading challenges, writing workshops, and many free events and activities to
support your student. Visit the local branch – or check out their offerings on-line (http://www.sno-isle.org/teens/).
Math teachers also sent home information with their students with resources you might find helpful over the break. All will be linked on our Monroe Public Schools site at http://www.monroe.wednet.edu/ and the Math Honors materials will also be linked under "Honors and AP" tab along the left side. This update to our Monroe Public Schools site should be done in a week or so. The information on how to access these materials went out in the placement letters to incoming 6th graders as well as the placement letters that went out from PPM.
Enjoy the summer! We wish our 8th graders a wonderful transition to high school – and already look forward to the return of our 6th/7th at our Back to School Bash on Sept 6th!

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.
