Elp Inquiry Window
Our Extended Learning Program provides honors classes for students in Math and English Language Arts in grades 4-8. Students qualify for these classes based on a variety of measures. Families are notified of this information in June (for class placement for the upcoming school year). Parents may complete a Parent Inquiry if they feel their child may benefit from a more rigorous curriculum. The Parent Inquiry window opens October 1 and remains open until April 1. Parent Inquiry paperwork is available in the main office of Middleton and McCracken, or by contacting your school’s Assistant Principal.
It's time to order your 2015-2016 yearbook! What better way to remember this school year than with a yearbook for you and your child? These are memories you'll want to keep for years to come! The school yearbook costs $20 and is available for pre-order from now until December 18. Yearbooks will be distributed in May.
How to order: You may order online or return payment in the ordering envelope your child received at school. All checks should be made payable to HR Imaging. To order online, please visit book.hrimaging.com and select John Middleton Elem School.
