Dear Saint Paul School Families and Friends,
Last night we concluded our individual grade level virtual Back to School Nights. If you were unable to make it please reach out to your child’s teacher.
This year we have added a “Study Skills” course with Ms. Barnes to our grade 6 curriculum. This week students assessed the positives of the school year and areas that need individual improvement. I think you will find we have some pretty smart students!
· Something that is good is that I learned a lot in the first month
· I loved my first month of middle school, I’m new here and I’m pretty sure if I were still at my last school, it would be really confusing.
· I have made new friends who are very nice.
· I love having more freedom and have awesome teachers.
· I stopped forgetting my books
· I’m getting really good grades
· Social Studies
· I want to improve my reading
· I need to pay more attention
· To work on math skills
· Planning put projects
· Need to study Spanish more
· Focusing more in class
· Need to work on stop leaving homework to last minute

Saint Paul School is currently taking inventory of available technology that may be loaned out and do not guarantee the availability of loaners. This would only be enacted if we have enough to cover all families and in the event of a longer need for a shift to remote learning. Please use the following link to indicate your NEED for technology. As said, this would not be available for next Wednesday. Grade 6-8 students need not be included, as they have school issued Chromebook:
