*Counseling Center Tip of the day: Ask About Your Teen’s Friends
Telling your parents about yourself can be scary. It’s a lot less stressful to tell them about someone else. Parents can help teens engage by allowing them to not engage. Ask about their friends instead. It sounds backward, but as teens open up and tell you what is happening with their friends, they’re also giving you insight into what is on their mind or what they’re noticing. Or if you can’t ask them about a specific problem, ask your teen about their mood. Again, they’ll get around to what is on their mind; they just need help getting started.

You scream, I scream, we all scream for the chance to celebrate another school year. Check out this PTSO dine-out to help you celebrate the last day of school on May 20th. Visit the PTSO website and mention ‘Mickle’ at check out!

*BOXTOPS!!
Please, keep scanning those receipts for boxtops!

If you are new to the scanning receipts here is how you can help: 

Go to your app store and get the “Boxtops for Education” app. Set up an account with your email and password. 

Find “Robin Mickle Middle School” to donate-2500 N 67th St. 68507. Use the app to take photos of receipts using the SCAN button.

Every receipt for supplies or food will work! The app automatically knows which are valued purchases and it credits Mickle with those funds twice a year!

Each school day this week will follow the traditional bell schedule.

*Conduct at School – It is impossible to include all of the behaviors a student is to exhibit at school.  Simply, Mickle has four tenets everyone is to follow:

   • Be Safe

   • Be Responsible

   • Be Respectful

   • Be A Learner

If students follow these tenets, they will be very successful for the remainder of school and beyond.  If they do not follow these tenets, students will work with their parents, teachers, counselors, administrators, and/or other staff.   Adults at school will contact home as needed.

*Students Dressing for School Success – With the improved weather outside, of course, we continue to ask that clothing choices remain appropriate for school.  Fortunately, Mickle is an air-conditioned school. The need for light, thin, or baggy clothing does not exist. Please talk with your student about separating school day from weekend clothing choices.  We appreciate the support of families we have worked with and holding to the message of “Coming Dressed For Learning”.
