On September 2, the first day of school, students are welcome in the lunch court to pick up schedules beginning at 8:15 am in order to be ready for the first bell at 8:50 am. Plan ahead for a place to meet when school gets out at 3:35 pm. The area along Ute Street gets pretty congested, so a spot a little distance from the school may be a wiser choice. Be sure not to park in the BUS ZONE in front of the auditorium and along Clairemont Drive. Many parents have found it simpler to meet students on Waco Street - the east boundary of the school, or across Clairemont Drive on Mohoc near Clairemont High School (they get out earlier than we do, so it shouldn't be a problem).
Many students prefer to purchase their own binders/notebooks. All that we ask is that they be free of graffitti on the front and back covers. We will supply one, if you like. There is a supply list elsewhere on this web page, but that's optional, too. We will provide whatever is needed to accomplish the daily lessons. Do take a look at the dress code. We have discovered that it is best for students to dress comfortably, yet modestly, in order to be free of unecessary distractions in the classroom. Just because it is hot doesn't mean the dress code is suspended - tank tops and short shorts are perfect for the weekend, but not at school. Hats must be plain, unless of course it's the Marston Middle School hat which can be purchased in our student store!
Enjoy the last few precious days of summer. Call us if you have questions. We are proud to be part of your child's education!
