Welcome to middle school! Middle school years can be difficult for both parents and students and my job is to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. Please communicate with your child about how things are going with friends, school and extra-curricular activities. Even though they sometimes act as if they don’t, they still need your support and guidance! If you or your child ever has any concerns regarding classes, other students, teachers, or a family issue, please don't hesitate to contact me, Sarah Baumgartner, at 855-5817 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
