We are already looking forward to next year and the return of the students on Thursday, August 16th. Following is important information to prepare for the start of school.
Summer Bulldog Days:
Summer Bulldog Days take place in the MPR from 9:00 -11:30 am & 1:00-3:00 pm on Wednesday, August 8th or Thursday, August 9th. Parents and students will be able to pick up the list of courses for verification, purchase school & PE uniforms and yearbook, join PTSA, and receive important school information. ALL sales are CASH ONLY.
Required Immunization for All Students Entering 7thGrade:
All students entering the 7th grade students are REQUIRED bring proof of the Tdap immunization before school startsin August. Students who have not provided proof of the immunization will not be allowed to attend classes.
The school uniform consists of a burgundy collared, "polo type" shirt. Corvallis uniform shirts are available for purchase at our cost in the school office for $12.00 each (limit 3 shirts per student during summer registration). Parents who choose to purchase school shirts elsewhere may select burgundy collared, "polo type" shirts to support our safe school environment. Corvallis Middle School maintains a safe and positive school environment in part due to our effective uniform policy and practices. While Corvallis does not require students to purchase the school uniform, please support the use of a uniform.
Physical Education (PE) Uniform:
Appropriate clothes for PE consist of maroon mesh or cotton athletic type shorts, a grey cotton t-shirt, and athletic type shoes. PE clothes are available for purchase for a total of $15.00 (shorts-$7.00 shirts-$8.00). Parents may choose to purchase PE clothing elsewhere as long as they meet these requirements. All students must use a lock for the PE locker. PE locks are for sale for $5.00 in the school office. These locks allow teachers to help students open them, if needed. Parents may choose to purchase locks elsewhere; however, if it becomes necessary for school staff to open the locker, the lock will need to be cut off.
All students are required to bring a 3-inch binder, pencil pouch (that fits in the binder), ballpoint pens (blue or black), pencils, and a reading book to school daily. These supplies will be provided for all students. Any family wanting to purchase any/all of these supplies is encouraged to do so. Funds saved will help the school to provide additional resources and opportunities for students. Please check the website for recommended supplies.
The first day of school is Thursday, August 16th, which is a minimum day with dismissal at 1:15 p.m. School begins everyday at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Each Wednesday, students are dismissed at 1:45 p.m. so that teachers may participate in professional development.
Back to School Night:
Please plan to meet all of our teachers and staff at Back to School Night on Thursday, September 6thfrom 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. This is an important night with valuable information for a successful school year. Food and drinks will be available for purchase beginning at 5:30 pm. We look forward to seeing you there. Elections for parent representatives to the School Site Council will take place at Back to School Night. Three parents are needed to serve on the School Site Council. The team meets once each month for about one hour to discuss issues that concern the school.
