Welcome to Pershing Middle School!

On behalf of the Pershing PTO, welcome to Pershing Middle School.  Although you may feel a little overwhelmed right now, we hope that your student is excited about the opportunities and adventures that the next three years will hold.  In order to make things a bit easier, this letter offers a few tips and suggestions to get you started.

Uniforms:
All Pershing students are required to adhere to the school dress code.  Specific guidelines can be found on the Pershing website. Uniforms can be purchased at the Pershing school store which will be open during Panda Days and for extended hours during the first week of school.  Students are also required to change from their regular uniform into a Pershing PE uniform for PE classes.  These uniforms are also available for sale in the Pershing school store.

Locks:
It is recommended that you purchase a double set of combination locks. The double set means that the student only has to learn one combination!  Students will leave one lock on their hall locker at all times.  The second combination lock will be used to secure belongings during PE class. This lock is taken back to the hall locker once the student’s PE period is completed.

School Supplies:
Pre-packaged school supplies are available for order.  Many teachers will send class-specific lists home with their students during the first week of school.  Whether you opt for the pre-packaged supplies or not, be aware that you may be asked to do some additional shopping.  On the first days of school, students should come prepared with their locks, pencil / pen, paper, and a binder or folder for hand-outs.

Important Dates:
6th Grade Social-  tbd

Panda Days-  tbd

6th Grade Orientation- tbd

We hope that you find this information helpful.  Welcome to Pershing Middle School!
