Team Gladiators Weekly Message:
Hello Team Gladiator families,
We hope you have enjoyed your weekend! As always, here are a couple reminders/updates for the week of December 4th:
Class schedule for the week of 12/4/23: Monday-1-2-3-4-5-6, Tuesday-1-2-3-4, Wednesday-5-6-1-2, Thursday-3-4-5-6, Friday-6-5-4-3-2-1
Mendive is now an “OFF and AWAY” school. No cell phone use for students (we/staff do not want to see or hear them) between 7:23am-2:00pm- this includes during passing time and at lunch time. More and more schools are taking this no cell phone approach/expectation and seeing a dramatic difference with an increased/stronger focus on learning in the classes, less student violence/fights, less cyber-bullying, and an over-all more positive, productive school culture- which is one of our three areas of focus this year.
After-School Homework Club/Support!! We offer after-school Homework Club/Support in our Library on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 2:00pm-3:00pm. Students must come prepared with schoolwork to work on/get help. Students messing around, being disrespectful, playing games, disturbing others, etc.… will unfortunately be asked to leave. This is a fantastic opportunity to get extra help, get ahead, or simply finish homework/makeup work in a quiet place.
