Hello Middle School Families!

I can’t believe that we are half-way through first quarter!

Progress Reports– Progress Reports were sent home on Friday.  Please sign and return them OR send an email to your student’s homeroom teacher that you have received the progress report and don’t need a parent conference.

7th/8th Grade Wellness Groups– During last period with our School Guidance Counselor – Mrs. Kim Apelgren ( if you have any questions).

  • Monday – Grief and Loss
  • Wednesday – Organization and Study Skills
  • Friday – Stress and Worry

Planners– please continue to check planners with your students.

Fall Fest– We’re planning a fun fall event for Middle School on Saturday, October 30 from 10am-12pm at ERA.  We will be hosting this event outside at school. Please consider signing up to send in some supplies for this event.

PowerSchool– students should be able to log in with their own account at this point.  Parent letters have gone home for all new to ERA students.  If you are still unable to log in, please feel free to reach out to Mrs. Becky Moore (

Counseling opportunity– Due to the increasing rates of Covid-19 in our community and the risk to children with the Delta variant, Camp ReLEAF is being postponed to April 2022. To address the needs of grieving children in our community, Duke Hospice Bereavement Services is planning some virtual events starting this fall to provide a space for grieving children to connect and explore ways to navigate their grief. If you have a family interested in receiving notifications about these virtual events or receiving our quarterly newsletter please have them contact Tracy Lamar at with their name and email address.  

Duke Hospice Bereavement Services continues to offer individual grief counseling and available to partner with school or community groups to support grieving children in the community. 

Please let me know if you have any questions and have a great day,
