We want you to know that you can locate teacher web page information, e-mail addresses, and phone extensions by going to the Staff Listing and Teacher Websites page under Contact Us.
Remember that students are supposed to write the objective (information they are learning) and note assigned homework, quiz, and/or scheduled tests in their Student Planner. This is a great tool for parents
to dialogue with their children about their
day at school.
Check back often to stay informed about the exciting happenings at Combs Middle School!
Thank you for your support in helping your child reach his or her academic potential. Your encouragement and involvement will make all the difference in how your student perceives his or her middle school years. Together, working as a team, we can help your child learn, succeed, and achieve!
The end of the grading period for the third quarter will occur on Friday, March 7. Please encourage your child to make sure they have completed all assignments, projects, quizzes, and tests. Students will receive their third quarter report cards after spring break on Wednesday, March 19. If you have any questions about the grade or comments your child receives for a given class, please contact the teacher for that class. You may locate teacher phone extension and e-mail information by going to the staff listings.
As you know, the staff at the middle school continually strives to create opportunities to build community with parents. One of the most important communication tools will take place when the middle school hosts parent-teacher conferences on March 20 from 2:30-7:00 p.m. and March 21 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Conferences will take place in individual teacher classrooms. You do not need specific appointments; instead, parents have the opportunity to move around campus and interact with teachers. This setting provides the best opportunity for private conversations to take place between teachers and parents. We will dismiss students at 1:00 p.m. on each of the parent-teacher conference days. We will only serve breakfast on these days.
When parents arrive on campus, they are encouraged to pick-up a school map and their child’s report card in the administration office. In order to be respectful of other parents waiting to conference with a given teacher, and because teachers educate approximately 180-210 students on a daily basis, we are requesting that parents limit their conference to five minutes so parents may meet with as many teachers as possible. If the conference needs to be longer than five minutes, please schedule an appointment with that teacher to complete the conference later.
As the third quarter ends, teachers are looking forward to meeting with parents during the upcoming parent-teacher conferences to share the many successes our students have experienced this quarter.
