On behalf of the middle school staff and seventh grade students, I would like to invite all parents, guardians, siblings, and friends to the 2017 Plant Feastival on Tuesday April 4th from 7:30-8:30 PM in the NVCS Gym. Join us as our seventh grade class presents important scientific and historic information concerning a single plant's importance and significance, and enjoy a tasty dish made to highlight it in our diets. We all cannot wait to see you there!
A Few Notes About the Feastival (for parents and guardians):

2017-2018 NJHS Applications are due Friday, March 3rd. Late applications will not be accepted. Applications are available here, in the front office, and in Mrs. Thompson's room.
On Tuesday, March 7th, the middle school will be attending "A Day in the Arts" at Mountain View High School. Students will see the musical Children of Eden and participate in workshops in music/arts areas. Workshops include: jewelry-making, painting, drawing, acting, improv, dance, band, orchestra pit, vocals, stage tech, costuming, makeup and mask-making. If you have questions about the content of the musical before signing the permission slip, please look of Children of Eden Musical by John Caird and Stephen Schwartz.
Times: 8:40-2:30, we will take a bus to and from MVHS
Students need to bring: a water bottle, sack lunch, comfortable shoes, instrument (if they are in the band, or orchestra pit rotations.) Cell phones will be kept in lockers at NVCS, as they interfere with the microphones during the musical.
Permission slips will be sent home on Friday, 2/23 and need to be returned to the advisory teacher on Thursday, 3/3/17.
Since we have been back from winter break, we have noticed an increase in the number of student tardies to class. This includes arriving several minutes after class has started and not having all their materials. Students miss valuable learning opportunities when they are late, or not prepared. We wanted to remind parents of the tardy policy that was listed in the Middle School Handbook. The policy is as follows:
Starting next Wednesday, 2/1, we will begin holding lunch detentions for those students who have 5 tardies in the previous week. Students that are required to attend will be given slips on Tuesday that require a parent signature. On Wednesdays, students will get their lunch and report to Mrs. Balster's room for the entire lunch and recess time. If students miss detention, they will be expected to serve it the following Wednesday. We are confident this will remind students of the need to use their passing periods wisely, get to class on time, and have all the materials needed to be successful.
Students will be taking the iReady tests on Wednesday and Thursday this week. On those days, students will need to have headphones with them. Please check with your student to ensure that they have them at school on those days. We appreciate your support!
MVHS Lisa applications are due, Thursday 12/1/16.
8th Graders, please have your parents let Mrs. Jobman know where you will be attending high school before you leave for Winter Break. This can be done in person or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Tuesday, November 1st, from 12:45-3:15, the middle school will have a field day to celebrate the end of the first trimester. We will be leaving campus and walking to Loveland Sports Park to play capture the flag and other games. We will be returning to school for driveline by 3:15. Permission slips need to be returned to the student's advisory teacher by the end of the day on Monday, October 31st. We are also needing some help with chaperoning and bringing snacks.
