Park Place Middle School
Welcome to Park Place Middle School - home of the Pumas!
April 21, 2016
Greetings to all,
The fourth and final quarter of the year has begun, with third quarter report cards going home on Friday, April 22nd. It’s very important to finish the year strong with good academics as it is a spring board to the next year. This is especially important to our 8th graders who will soon be at the High School.
We’re starting our State testing for English Language Arts next week, testing on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The testing schedule will continue the following week as we need two shifts of testing to accommodate using our computers for all the students. As students need at least two hours to test, we’ll be accommodating the testing by an altered schedule on those test days.
The first week of testing, starting April 26th, we’ll have periods 1, 3 and 5 meet. Each
class will be roughly two hours long. The following week, starting May 3rd, we’ll have
periods 2, 4 and 6 meet. It is very important that students get a good night’s sleep and
breakfast each morning. Please make every attempt to have your child in school on those
days and try to schedule appointments around that.
State testing in Math will follow the ELA schedule with the Math beginning on May 10- 12th, with a 1,3,5 period schedule followed by the next week on May 17-19th, a 2,4,6 period schedule.
Our fourth season of sports is under way with over 100 students out for track from Park Place. Our first home meet is on Wednesday, April 27th and it is at Monroe High School. We’ll have two meets here in Monroe over the course of the season, please come out and support our kids. All meets will begin at 3:30 and all of them will be at the MHS track.
Thank you for your continued support for our school and students.

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.
