Park Place Middle School
Welcome to Park Place Middle School - home of the Pumas!February 16, 2017
Dear Park Place Families & Community!
Welcome to the second half of the 2016-2017 school year! Many students have now settled into a new routine as almost all students switched classes of some sort. Report cards should have arrived home…they were sent home with students on Monday, Feb 13th (delivered during 6th period classes). This is again, a great time to review goals for the second semester, revisiting use of the school agenda, and even cleaning out a backpack!
During February, schools begin to look towards the 2017-18 school year registration. Next week on February 22nd, PPMS will be hosting our incoming 6th Grade Parent Night at 6:30 pm in the PPMS Commons. Registration forms are being delivered in the next couple of weeks to the elementary schools and to our current 6th & 7th graders. Forms are due March 10th. Our current 8th graders will be meeting soon with the MHS counselors (who come and visit PPMS in March). The 8th grade students and their families are invited to Prospective Student Info Night at MHS on March 9th, 6-8 p.m.
Our third sports season, girls’ basketball and wresting (combined with Hidden River) began their contests last week. The basketball games are held at SVEC and all wrestling matches are at Hidden River. This will be a fun and exciting season to come watch!
Thank you – and as always – please let us know better ways to serve our students & families!

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.
