    End of 2018 Updates: COLD WEATHER, TESTING, AND NO MORE CELL PHONES

    As we head into the month of December, colder weather has already hit. Please be sure to have your student dress warmly! Despite some recent snow days, plan for school to be in session even in snowy, frigid weather. 

    December looks to be a busy month with two important testing periods. During the 1st week of the month (December 3-7) we will be administering the MAP Tests in Math and English. We will also be administering practice State Tests (called the KAP Interim Tests) on December 11-13. We urge students and families to take these tests very seriously, as they are tools to help us "diagnose" areas of growth/improvement on the individual student level, as well as measuring the status of our school as a whole. Students, do your best on these tests!!!

    The main news for December is that we will begin enforcing a "No Cell Phones" policy in January 2019. While we understand the desire for parents to be in contact with their students, cell phones generally cause distraction and other problems that interrupt learning. We provide students with a Chromebook (laptop computer) to use every day as a powerful piece of educational technology, and cell phones are not used for instructional purposes. Parents can always contact us at Central Middle School (913-627-6150) in order to reach their student(s). 

    That said, what we will ask is that students A) not bring their phones to school; or B) put them away and keep them stored safely during the day. We will provide safety measures so that students can store their phones throughout the day, but they will not be allowed to carry their phones from class to class. Again, the negative impact of cell phones outweighs any other considerations... and we want to focus on learning!

    Thanks for your support and partnership in creating a safe, conducive learning environment at Central Middle School!
