Sixth Grade Office. If you have any general questions, or wish to leave a message for your student, you can contact the Sixth Grade Secretary, Mrs. Marie Brigandi, at email@example.com or 856-795-2025, extension 5160.
Locating the Sixth Grade Office. We are located in the front of the Middle School, between the 8th grade and CER entrances, where you will find a "6" located on the outside wall of the wing. If you need to drop off a forgotten lunch, or anything else for your student, please leave the items in the Sixth Grade Office. Students must periodically check in the sixth grade office for forgotten items, since classrooms cannot be disturbed. Please check in directly at our office located immediately to your right upon entering the sixth grade wing, or at the Main Office, if no one is available upon your arrival. Please remember that security requirements are in place for the protection of our students. All sixth grade visitors must check in at the Sixth Grade Office.
Using the Student Handbook - All students will be issued a personal iPad which will include the student handbook. The handbook contains a school calendar with major events listed. Students will also be able to access school assignments and test dates on their iPads. Important information about school activities, the dress code, the merit/demerit system, and the VMS disciplinary guide are in the handbook. Students are urged to keep a record of grades in the spaces provided.
Student Identification Cards - Each student is issued an ID card with a photo. There are several purposes for these cards. Our cafeteria cash registers are computerized and students may establish an account by submitting a check to the cafeteria. Subsequent charges will be credited to that account, using the ID card. ID cards are required in the cafeteria, and students with merit stickers will be called first to purchase lunches. Student ID cards also serve a purpose in emergencies, and may be vital during an emergency. All students are strongly urged to carry an ID at all times. Lost ID cards can be replaced for a $5.00 fee at the student's grade level office.
VMS Discipline Guide - Information on disciplinary policies and procedures is available in the handbook. Students and their parents were asked to review these policies and submit a signed statement acknowledging the rules and procedures at the start of the school year. Questions about the discipline guide may be referred to Mrs. Biederman.
