News & Announcements
First of year Information
Individual student test score reports can be picked-up in the guidance office for incoming 7th and 8th graders. Score reports for incoming 6th graders will be at their elementary school. If you have an incoming 7th grader and have not done so, please turn in his/her updated shot records including the Tdap booster.
We would like the students to come the first day of school with basic supplies; including a backpack (rolling or with shoulder straps), pencils, pens (blue or black ink), notebook paper, and at least one folder or binder. We do not expect the students to come with all of their supplies on the first day. The teachers will go over the required supplies for their classes on the first day of school and will give the students several days to get the supplies that they need. Click here for individual grade level supply lists. We know that many of you would like to go ahead and get a head start on buying supplies; taking advantage of sales and tax-free holidays. Since you do not know your child’s electives at this point, you may want to wait to purchase supplies for the elective classes.
Students will not receive their schedules until orientation on August 8th. All students will be taking the four core classes, so you will be safe to go ahead and purchase supplies for Language Arts, Math, Science, and History/Civics. Most students are automatically signed up for the P.E. class (semester course) with a semester of Tech./Computers, so you may want to go ahead and purchase supplies for P.E. and Tech./Computers; except for the P.E. uniforms. P.E. uniforms can be purchased during the first week of school in the P.E. class for $20. ($10. for the shirt and $10. for the shorts). The students will not need a P.E. uniform during the first few days of school.
It is a good idea to go ahead and purchase some of the folders with pockets & brads (in assorted colors). There are several classes that require that type of folder and stores are sometimes in short supply right before school starts.
The student planners/agendas will be sold during the first week of school for $5.
School Apparel Information
If you are ordering new school uniform shirts and jackets, please go to www.pmgschoolgear.com. If you have not yet ordered, please order soon to allow enough time for delivery before the first day of school.
We do have a Used Uniform Shop (a.k.a. Clothes Closet). You can purchase used uniforms at a discounted price. The Used Uniform Shop will be open on Orientation Day (August 8th) from 8:30 to 1:00 PM and again from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.
Used Uniform Prices:
Friday T-shirt: $3.00
Polo shirt: $7.00
Hoodie/Jacket: $10.00 (limited supply)
We also give away donated used pants and shorts for free.
If you are out purchasing uniform bottoms for next year, please first look over the attached “Student Dress Code” to make sure all clothing items are in compliance with our dress code policy. Students cannot wear cargo shorts or jeggings (pants with elastic around the ankles). All pants must have belt loops and a belt must be worn out all times. Uniform bottoms should be tan/khaki or navy blue.
You do have the option of purchasing a plain navy blue jacket from Walmart, Target, etc., instead of the school jacket from the uniform company. The jacket cannot have any writing, logos, or any other colors.

Car Pick-up Instructions:
If your child is a car rider; please click here to see the attached “Car Pick-up Instructions”.
Reminder: please do not turn left as you exit either parking lot. If you are using the 7th/8th grader drop-off/pick-up area, please do not turn onto 6th street from Ave. T (see attached map). Please take 5th street and circle the block. Some parents are waiting in line for 15-20 minutes and then cars who haven’t been waiting pull right off of Ave. T from 6th street and try to pull in front of those who have been sitting in line for a while. Please do not pick-up or drop-off students outside the gate. We will no longer allow students to walk outside the gates to meet parents. If your child has an appointment and you have to leave immediately after school, please call ahead and let the school know. You will be able to pull in the exit and park to wait for your child. Also, it would speed up the line if each vehicle had a paper/card with your child’s name on it. As you pull up in the car line, hold up the paper and then we will know what student to call.
Thank you for cooperation as we work to make our car line more efficient and safer for our students!
