Calendar Correction

A few mistakes were made with our school calendar. Please disregard previous calendars and follow the calendar attached below for days off and the correct date for the end of the semester. It has been marked in a few publications that the end of semester I is January 16th but the correct date is Thursday, January 23rd. Sorry for any confusion and thank you for pointing out the mistake!

Science Olympiad Student and Parent Meetings - Wednesday, September 25th

The initial information meeting for Chippewa students interested in Science Olympiad will be Wed., Sept. 25th after school in the school Auditorium.


A parent meeting will follow at 3:30 in the Auditorium. The parent meeting will include general information about the nature of Science Olympiad at the Middle School level, expectations for the Olympians, the need for parent involvement, limit on student participant numbers and selection process, and a preview of the multiple forms to fill out.


Because the number of students who can participate per coach is limited by MSO, it is important that interested students and at least 1 parent attend the meeting.
