Please join us on Tuesday, November 12 at 8:15 am in the MS Alumni Center for the Middle School Parent Association meeting. Coffee will be served!
8th-9th Grade Transition Meeting
At 6:30 pm on Tuesday, November 12, we will be hosting a meeting in the Barnard Commons to discuss the transition from the Middle School to the Upper School for parents of the class of 2024. During the school day, the 8th grade class will be attending a panel discussion on the same topic with Upper School Students. We hope that these events (one for students and the other for parent) will help create conversations at home about the transition to the Upper School. We look forward to seeing you there!
Book Fair Drive Winner – 5th Grade
5th grade won the October book drive and will be awarded with a Chick-Fil-A breakfast on Wednesday, November 13 at 8:40 am in the refectory!
We hope to see you in the Book Room as we continue to sort your donations and prepare for the Annual Book Fair. Don’t forget to mark your calendar! See website for more details

4th Grade drop off and pick up are in the lane that is just off of 81st Street, north of the Middle School building. Entering from the middle gates and proceeding through the driveway going west will keep our traffic flow moving. Pick up is in the far right or far left lane, no students should ever be picked up in the middle lanes of any driveway, those are reserved for through traffic.
We continue to have 7th/8th cars blocking the lanes at the 3:10 pm pick up, making it difficult for 4th-6th graders to be picked up. If you are picking up your child at 3:30 pm, please arrive after 3:20 pm when the early carpool is ended.
We appreciate everyone’s cooperation to make our carpool lanes flow well!
