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

May 14, 2015

Hooray it’s May!

With May comes the anticipation of the end of school and summer! As the days lengthen, we are working hard to positively finish the 2014-15 school year and working to prepare for September. As you know, the last day of school has been moved to Tuesday June 16th. There is no school tomorrow May 15th as MEA (Teachers union) members voted to participate in a one day walkout.

We have officially completed state testing, SBAC for all grades in English Languages Arts and Math, and the 8th Science MSP! We are so PROUD of our students who worked hard to do their best! This test has generated a lot (often negative) media. We know that the SBAC will not be perfect in this first year – and yet we feel that our Puma’s best efforts were put forward. Thank you for supporting your child through this new assessment – getting to school on time, positive encouragement, and partnering with us to make this experience as positive as possible.

Many of you have received an email through Family Access requesting your return of the district’s Key Performance Survey. We here at Park Place use that information and take your input seriously – please take time to respond to this survey (and thank you to those who have done so thus far!).

Our 8th graders are getting excited to be Bearcats. In fact, MHS will bring down leadership students and host a pep-assembly for the 8th grade class (Puma Time on May 20th) to help with their transition to high school. The student led assembly includes showcasing the many types of sports, activities, and clubs available to Bearcats. On May 26th and 27th, 8th grade science classes will also have an opportunity to attend a field trip to UW Bothell. Our counselors Jennifer Garcia and Elsa Trabanino received a grant on behalf of the Monroe Schools
Foundation to make this happen.

As always, thank you for your partnership and support of our work here at 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.
