Welcome to Perry Heights Middle School
We hope you find our website to be a useful and informative tool. If you are reading this, you are a part of our school community, and your comments and suggestions are appreciated!
Hello Everyone, Spring is almost here and that means Girl's Middle School Tennis will be here in no time. It's been a long harsh winter and I know everyone is anxious to get outdoors. If your daughter is in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade, she is encouraged to join the team. No experience is necessary. No fees (although donations to ECTA are appreciated).
The season is scheduled to begin on April 1st and the registration deadline is March 25th. Forms are available at school, but I am also attaching one to this email for your convenience. The ECTA will again be offering a free clinic for girls who enroll, at their indoor facility at 5428 Davis Lant Drive. Participation is on a first come first serve basis - limited to 48 girls (so spots will go fast). Reserve your spot by calling the club at 812-401-6060. The clinic is scheduled for Saturday March 29th at 11AM-12PM. Practice t-shirts will again be provided to the girls by ECTA for those who register by the March 25th deadline.
Team practices will start THIS MONTH. We practice once a week (normally Sat or Sun at USI) and matches are once a week beginning April 1. Tennis is a lot of fun, great exercise, a life-long sport, and this league is perfect for girls who are beginners or as well as those who have played for years. We are also looking for some of you parents to help with coaching and practices. Dust off that racquet and come on out.
The sooner your daughter enrolls, the better, so we have an idea of how many are playing. If you have any questions, please contact Monie or Tom (info below) who will be "serving" (get it? serving") as two of the coaches. You can also contact Karan Wilson who coordinates the league.
See you on the courts,
Monie and Tom
Grade-by-Grade Parent Guides to the Common Core in English and Spanish
The Council of the Great City Schools has developed content and grade-specific parent roadmaps that provide detailed information for parents about the expectations of the Common Core in English Language Arts and Literacy and Mathematics. These roadmaps include examples of grade-level focus in the content area using parent-friendly language, sample progressions of learning across three grade levels in the Common Core, and tips to parents on communicating with teachers about their child’s work and how to support student learning at home. CGCS completed the high school-level guides in February 2013, completing the set of guides from K-12 in English language arts and mathematics. More translations will follow throughout the school year.
