A message from POE MIDDLE SCHOOL

Dear Poe Families,

We have been busy with district assessments, music performances, and preparing for our winter break.

We at Poe wish all of our families a wonderful, relaxing break and look forward to welcoming our students back on January 2nd. Students should take the opportunity to relax, but it is important to read, read, read every. All students should be sure to have a book or two to enjoy over winter break. Our library is open and our librarian, Ms. Liebman, is there to help!


Parent Survey The school counseling team is still looking to gather your input on parent workshops for this year. Please take a few minutes to answer the brief survey at the link below. The survey will stay open until Thursday, December 14th. We appreciate your time and input to help us deliver programming that supports the needs of our families!



After-School Program News: We will have NO after-school program on Friday, December 15th. All students will go home at our 2:15 dismissal time.
