2021-22 Incoming 6th Orientation Registration Form

 Anchor Bay Middle School South is pleased to once again offer our incoming 6th graders the opportunity to familiarize themselves with our school.  Pirate Pride 6th Grade Orientation will occur on Wednesday, August 25th from 8:30am -11:30am.  Students will participate in learning sessions that will ensure our new "South Strong" Students get off to a great start!  Learning session topics will include the following: Understanding Middle School Student Schedules, Organization, Study Skills, Hopes/Fears, Building Tour, Building Scavenger Hunt and directions on how to open lockers.   

  

Below is a registration form/permission slip link that will allow you to sign up your child for the orientation program.  While this is a voluntary program, we do feel that it is a great opportunity to get students off to a strong start.  Forms are due by Monday, August 2nd.

Reminders 

 
  • Remember to check grades on Parent Portal instead of Schoology.  Parent Portal is the official place that grades are stored and updated. 
  • Thank you to all the parents who have dropped off and/or picked-up their child in the back of the school.  The front of the building is for buses only in the AM & PM. 
  • We do have students with peanut allergies, and we ask that no shelled peanuts be brought into school.  Food that is processed with peanuts is permitted.  We ask that no actual peanut shells be brought into the building. 
  • If you drop your child off late to school, please call to the main office to let them know.  
  • We will be continuing our new lockdown protocol known as A.L.I.C.E this school year.  

Medical Forms

Please contact the Middle School South office if your child needs to take medication during the day.  Medication forms will be made available.
