Dear Reading Middle School Families,
As the principal at Reading Middle School I would like to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year! I hope you are enjoying your summer and are as excited as I am about the year ahead at Reading Middle School. It is a true honor to be a part of a district that is rich with tradition! As your principal, my goal is to continue to provide your children with a learning environment that grows him/her both academically and socially. With the support of our staff, our high academic standards and extracurricular programs will foster the development of a well-rounded adolescent.
Reading Middle School is home to sixth, seventh and eighth graders. Our teachers establish a sense of classroom culture that embraces different learning styles, and our staff works hard to foster the “whole child,” by providing a multitude of experiences in academics, the arts and athletics.
We support and guide our students to become independent, forward thinkers, provide opportunities for student voice and leadership, and incorporate service learning experiences within and outside of the Reading community.
We look forward to a strong partnership with you in the coming months. Open lines of communication between home and school are critical to the success of your student. Please see some important upcoming information listed below.
We welcome you to contact us with questions through email or by calling our office at 513-842-5151.
Go Blue Devils!
Damon Davis, Principal
Reading Middle School Hours
Beginning in the 18-19 school year. All school buildings throughout the district will have slightly adjusted start and ending times (please see your child's individual building for times and information). The new schedule was developed with a vision for reducing gaps between elementary and high school/middle school arrival and dismissal times, to make it easier for our parents, while also improving the supervision of our students after school. These changes will continue as we transition into the new building in the 19-20 school year. Please see the new times below:
7:40-8:00 - Breakfast is served
7:50 - Students allowed in the building and staff provide supervision
8:05 - School Begins for students
2:55 - Students dismissed
FINAL FORMS ARE UP AND RUNNING FOR 18-19 SCHOOL YEAR - PARENTS PLEASE COMPLETE
As we have been communicating throughout the summer and last Spring, parents must complete their child's Final Forms before you child can receive their class schedule or a Chromebook. If you need help accessing Final Forms or need to use a computer, please contact the middle school office and we are happy to assist you.
SCHEDULE PICK UP - AUGUST 13TH
This year we will again have our schedule pick up day on August 13th. We are offering two sessions to try and accommodate families. The first session will be 8:00 am - 12:00 pm, and the second session will be 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm. Also, students will be assigned a locker and can bring items to set up their lockers and practice using their locks.
Schedule pick up is an opportunity for students to receive their schedules and take a tour of the building. We will also have additional computers set up and volunteers to help any parents with completing Final Forms. Schedule pick up will be held in the middle school common's area located on the second floor.
GRADE LEVEL PARENT NIGHTS
We will be having individual grade level parent informational nights at the beginning of the year. We hope that you will be able to attend these important evenings as you will have an opportunity to meet your child's teachers, learn about curriculum, homework, communication, and upcoming events throughout the school year.
Sixth Grade Parent Night - Thursday, August 23 - 6:00 pm (Cafeteria)
Seventh Grade Parent Night - Monday, August 27 - 5:30 pm (Cafeteria)
Eighth Grade Parent Night - Monday, August 27 - 6:30 pm (Cafeteria)
