The Combs Middle School Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) provides parents with a means to build community within the school setting. The primary goals of PTO are to create opportunities to interact about important school issues and to organize fundraiser events.
Combs Middle School would like recognize and commend Shelly Hargis (President), Michelle De Leon (Vice President), Shannon Bernhardt (Secretary), and Lora Rael (Treasurer) for the outstanding leadership they provided for our school community throughout this school year! Thank you!
We are looking for new PTO officers. If you have an interest in volunteering, please e-mail Mr. Mauro directly.
Start Middle School Right
Middle school can be a difficult time for kids. They’re no longer elementary students, but neither are they quite ready for that “young adults” label. While it’s important for kids in the middle years to have some autonomy, it’s also important for them to have consistency and discipline in their lives to enable success. As a parent, you are becoming very familiar with mood swings. Add to that a school campus change, new interests, and classes that are more difficult, and you are in for some interesting and challenging experiences.
So what’s a parent to do? Thanks to the Internet, a lot of help is out there for you.
Outside the classroom, allow your child a good balance. Children this age start to come into their own. They develop interests, pay more attention to what’s going on in the world, and acquire a sense of empathy. Nurture these new ideals by talking to your children often, encouraging them to expand their extracurricular interests.
Now that you’ve done your homework, encourage your child to do the same. Kids Health allows children to walk through the steps to prepare for middle school on their own. It also offers advice from the kids themselves.
We look forward to seeing you on the first day of school!
