Principal's Message

­­­­­­Good afternoon,

Summer has arrived (for students at least)! Thank you for your support throughout this school year. I hope your child had a great year, despite the many challenges we faced.

Below is a number of important updates:

Year-end grades: Gradebooks are now closed. The parent/student IC portal has been turned off to allow teachers time to complete year end grading and finalize grades. The portal will re-open in the afternoon of Friday, June 24, 2022 and will remain open until Monday, June 27, 2022 at 8:00 a.m. We will then close the portal for the reminder of the summer to allow for work on next year’s building schedule.

Library books: All library books were due back to the library on Monday, June 6. If you have a library book at your home, please drop it off to school next week. You can leave these at the greeter’s desk.

Yearbook Distribution: All pre-ordered yearbooks have been distributed. Many families reached out indicating they would still like to purchase a yearbook. We have worked with our yearbook distributor, and they have agreed to print additional copies for us. The cost is $46.50 per year book. Please note the cost is higher than earlier this year, due to the significant rise in shipping costs. Yearbooks will be sent to Cosgrove when completed and we will reach out to set up a time for you to pick it up. If you are interested in ordering a 21-22 yearbook, please follow this link: www. jostensyearbooks.com  - then, click “order your yearbook” and enter Cosgrove Middle School.

Family Survey: Each year, the Cosgrove Middle School building planning team (BPT) creates a year end survey for families. The results of this survey are very important to us as we use these to guide decisions moving forward. Please take a few moments to complete and submit this survey. The link to this survey will expire on Friday, June 24, 2022 at 3:00 p.m.

Looking ahead to fall:

Summer reading: Please see the attached letter from our English department regarding summer reading. You will also find a list of novels for each grade level that could be used for this assignment.

Orientation: Students entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grades next year will receive a letter from me over the summer with specific information regarding orientation. Students entering 9th grade will receive more information from the high school. Here is some basic information regarding orientations and I ask that you mark these on your calendar.

Students entering 6th grade: Tuesday, August 30, from 8 - 11 a.m.

Students entering 7th/8th grade: Wednesday, August 31, from 8 - 11 a.m.

Students entering 9th grade: Thursday, September 1, (Time is TBD @ the high school)

Grade level contact information is listed below. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. I will send my final update of the school year next Friday afternoon.



Take Care,

Jim
