Welcome to Indian Ridge Middle

Congratulations - kids and parents - on your next year of education in Middle School! Whether you are a first-timer entering sixth grade or looking forward to high school, there's always something new to expect or experience.

 

Below is a summary of what's new and different for you and your student as they enter a new grade. IRMS also has a dedicated office for each grade, for more detailed information or specific concerns. Welcome to the new school year!

6th Grade - Open House: Sept. 15 @ 630pm

 

Here's some stuff to get you started:

  • Drop-off starts at 845am. 6th Graders "go to the right." Here's a handy map.

  • 6th Grade lunch is at 100 or 130pm. 

  • Agendas are issued in Homeroom.

  • Each teacher has a supply list. Here's a basic supplies list to get you started: lined paper, pens, #2 pencils, colored pencils, highlighters, handheld sharpener, calculator and ruler. 

  • Teachers appreciate classroom supplies such as hand sanitizer, tissues, and copy paper.

The leap from fifth to sixth grade is a big one. The entire Indian Ridge team is keenly aware of this major transition and has created an environment to help make the shift as smooth as possible. For instance, IRMS sixth graders are in an independent section of the school, so they get used to moving from class to class, but aren't overwhelmed with upperclassmen.

 

Our teaching team is relying on students to demonstrate effort, personal responsibility, and perseverance - reinforcing these ideals at home will enable progress at school. And most importantly, nothing is more important than attendance - it is the single biggest influence on academic success; thus, make sure school is an every day event. 

7th Grade
Open House: Sept. 21 @ 630pm

 

"Been there. Done that." It's a common refrain from both students and parents upon entering 7th grade.

 

You should know that there is more to "be" and more to "do," with tons of club opportunities and expanded curricululum choices. And while 6th grade was a big leap in terms of independence, 7th grade comes with major challenges in math and science. Improving your study habits to keep up with the pace of learning is super important. 

Lunch is at 1200 or 1230pm.

8th Grade
Open House: Sept. 22 @ 630pm

The guiding light for every eighth grader is high school preparation. In addition to more intense academic topics, eighth graders enjoy a broader choice of electives. IRMS offers students the opportunity to earn high school credit with courses in biology, Spanish and geometry.

Lunch is at 1130am or 1230pm.
