Principal's Sunday Message

Good evening Pershing parents and families. This is your principal, Susan Levy, with announcements for the week of January 10th.
At this time, we are starting articulation activities with our 8th graders and incoming 5th grade. Additionally, current 6th and 7th graders will be meeting with our counselors to help them determine their schedules for next year. Currently we are planning for a traditional 6 period day and on site instruction for the 2021-2022 school year. (Fingers crossed!)

This Wednesday, January 13th from 5-6pm, our ASB students will be hosting GAME Night! See all the information below and don't forget to register:

We need to do another Book Distribution for 7th and 8th grade students on January 20th from 1:00 to 3:30pm.  Books for Quarter3 for English and any other textbooks that your student has not picked up will be available during that time.  We will use the same process. Pull into the dirt field and the library will be open at that time. 

Our 6th and 7th graders will be meeting with our Pershing counselors, for Articulation to 7th and 8th grade thru PE, via zoom, on January 21st during periods 4, 5, and 6. Counselors will meet with periods 1, 2, and 3, thru PE, on January 26th as they will then be in Quarter 3. 

Quarter 3 beings on January 25th for all students. FYI- Quarter 4 begins on April 26th which will be when students return to the teachers they currently have. That Quarter ends when the school year ends on June 15th!

8th grade families all received the links to the Patrick Henry High School articulation meeting which will be held tomorrow, January 11th via zoom. If you have questions, please contact counselor Conrado Castro at Pershing.

Articulation for incoming 5th graders will be on January 27th for Dailard and Green, and January 28th for Benchley and Gage. More information to follow. 

Also this Wednesday is our Foundation Meeting at 6:30pm. Parents who have already attended a Foundation meeting will receive the link. If you are just joining the Foundation meeting, please email Mrs. Jenny Thomas for the link.

Don’t forget that school will be closed next Monday, January 18th in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday. 

Wednesday, January 20th we will have “Coffee With The Principal” at 8”30am. The link will be the same link from last month. 

Quarter 2 ends on January 22nd. On January 25th, students will return to the schedule they had in Quarter 1 (periods 1, 2, and 3).

“Little Mermaid” rehearsals this week will ONLY be on Thursday from 1:30-2:45. There is no rehearsal on Tuesday this week. Please remind your students.

On behalf of the faculty and staff at Pershing Middle School, I wish you a great evening and a wonderful week ahead!
