Dear Middle School Families,


It’s already time to start thinking about the 2018-19 school year.  The first day of school is Thursday, August 9, 2018.  You can help your child prepare for the school year by encouraging them to read daily, practice math facts and write about whatever interests them. 

We would like to invite you to attend our annual Back to School Picnic, Wednesday, August 8, 2018 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.  Hotdogs, chips and a drink will be served in the cafeteria.  There will be a special Open House for all 5th graders on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. We look forward to partnering with you to make your child’s experience at North College Hill Middle School positive.  Please join us at these events to begin building a spirit of community that will allow your student to grow and learn in a safe and friendly environment. 

Students of involved parents are known to be more successful in school.  How can you be involved at the middle school level?  You can help in the office with copying, you can listen to students read, you can chaperone field trips, you can support the sport teams and you can bring a snack for one of our many clubs, etc.  If you have an idea, please stop in and share it with us.

A few reminders! 

  •       School hours at the Middle School are 8:15 a.m. – 3:05 p.m. Breakfast is served in the classroom at 8:05 a.m. therefore encourage your child to arrive no later than 8:05 a.m.  
  •       Help your child every morning before they walk out the door to start the day off successful. Ask them if they have their supplies?  Is their homework in their bag and ready to turn in?  Are they in dress code?   Every day at NCH MS is a dress code day.
  •       If your child is ill and going to miss school please call 728-4785, option 2 and leave your name, your child’s name, the date of the absence and the reason for the absence. When the child returns also send a note explaining their absence.


We look forward to an exciting and productive school year.  If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to call and discuss them with us.  We are here to make sure your child has a great experience and to partner with you to ensure that happens.
