  • Team Gladiators Weekly Message:

    Hello Team Gladiator families,

    We hope you all had a wonderful week.  As always, here are a couple reminders/updates for the week of May 270th:   

    CLASS SCHEDULE FOR THE WEEK OF 5/27/24: Monday: No School, Tuesday: 1,2,3,4, Wednesday: 5,6,1,2, Thursday: 3,4,5,6, and Friday: 6,5,4,3,2,1.

    Mendive is 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.

  • Team Gladiators Updated Missing Assignments Policy: Semester 2

    Dear Team Morris Parents and Guardians, 

    As we begin the second semester, we will be focusing on 7th grade, which is not that far away. In order to prepare our students, there will be a new assignment turn-in policy. Students will no longer be given until the end of the quarter to turn in missing assignments. 

    As a school, we have noticed that students are not using class time appropriately, procrastinating turning in work, and then as the quarter ends, students turn in missing assignments that are not quality work.   Also, the assigned lesson work becomes irrelevant if students are completing the work weeks after the actual lesson.  For some, as the quarter progresses, students feel overwhelmed and shut down when they see the number of missing assignments they have accumulated. These habits will not serve them well in 7th grade.  

    Each core teacher will be assigning due dates for their specific class, based on the end date of the current unit being taught.  This includes in-class assignments, homework, projects, essays and exams.  Assignment dues dates will be posted on our Team Website (www.washoeschools.net/teammorris) and students will also record assignments and due dates in their Agenda Books.  

    Students will then be given an additional 2 weeks from the assigned due date to complete and turn in any missing assignments.  In most cases, assignments will be completed during class.  However, some assignments may need to be completed at home or in Homework Club.  Once assignments are 2 weeks late, the students will be given a 0, and will no longer have the ability to complete and turn in the missing work. 

    Mendive offers after-school Homework Club/Support in the Library on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, from 2:15 pm-3:15 pm. 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 with teacher support.  

    Thank You for your support. 

    Ms. Morris, Ms. Gonzalez, Ms. Goulart, Ms. Cramer
