 Kimpton Families,

To help prepare you for our Jump Start on Tuesday, August 18th, we have included a link where you can download and print off almost all of the student forms you will need to compete for the start of another school year. Please take a moment to fill out the forms before you come to Jump Start, so your transition to each station will be smooth. Please remember to bring the forms with you to Jump Start.

Jump Start Orientation for 2015-2016

 Kimpton Middle School will host Jump Start Orientation on Tuesday, August 18, 2013 as follows:

7th Grade - 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

8th Grade - 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Evening hours for both grades will be from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.


Grade 7 Staggered Start 2015-2016

One of our goals at Kimpton Middle School is to ensure we do our best to provide a school climate that is safe, secure and supports our students and their needs. We understand the preteen and early teen years are tumultuous times with respect to students dealing with their relationships with their peers, while they also try to be successful in school.

We also understand the transition to middle school from Lakeview Intermediate is much different for students than the transition from their elementary school to Lakeview. Therefore, this year, we are implementing a Staggered Start for the 2015-2016 school year. On Thursday, August 27th ONLY Grade 7 students will come to school. This first day of school for Grade 7 students will support their transition to middle school as we will provide many opportunities for them to make connections with their peers, as well as their teachers. Our school day schedule will be adjusted for the students. Below is our schedule for your information:

7:35: Doors Open for Student Drop-Off

7:45 - 8:30 Extended Homeroom (Practice Lockers)

8:30 - 10:40 Students attend 6 Information Sessions

10:40 - 12:10 Lunch/Tour of Kimpton/Homeroom to Practice Lockers

12:10 - 2:30 Adjusted Schedule - Students Visit All of their Classes

2:30 - 2:40 Homeroom & Dismissal

We look forward to providing a day to help our Grade 7 students transition to Kimpton Middle School. Please know ALL students will come to school on Friday, August 28th.

 


BYOT - Bring Your Own Technology to Kimpton

In our continuous efforts to engage your child in their learning, Kimpton Middle School is allowing students to bring personal technology devices (i.e. cell phones, iPads, Nooks, Kindles, Laptops, Netbooks, etc.) to school to be used for educational purposes.

We piloted the BYOT program during the spring of 2012 and found, even with a few bumps, it was very successful. Beginning the first day of school, your child will be permitted to use personal technology devices (i.e. cell phones, iPads, Nook, Kindles, etc.) in classrooms for educational purposes only. Your child is permitted to use their device under the direct supervision of their teacher(s).

On the first day of school, the students will be introduced to the BYOT program and we will answer all their questions. Please see the two attachments the students will be given - 1) My letter to Kimpton Families describing BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology), and 2) Question & Answer document
