As a fundraiser, we ask our parents, friends, and businesses in the local community to help support our yearbook. We are able to offset our printing costs through the generosity of donors. Every contribution helps significantly and is greatly appreciated by all of us! Download the sponsorship letter to learn how to make a contribution.

Middle School (6-8) Announcements

Seventh Grade Standardized Testing

All seventh graders will take the Benchmark SSAT in school on Friday, April 24. This will give us standardized test results that will correlate more closely to the SSAT scores that most eighth grade students will have to submit as part of the secondary school process.

Those students with documentation will be able to take the test with most approved accommodations on the same day. Please speak to your Division Head if you have any questions about accommodations.

Mr. Lobato and Ms. Trepanier will offer an SSAT preparation course this summer from August 3-7 for interested rising eighth graders. The course includes a subscription to Test Innovators, an online review platform. You may register through the Summer Programs portal. Please sign up soon to be guaranteed a spot.

Eighth Grade Families: Place a Message to Your Graduate in the Yearbook

This year, the Amicus will have a special page where you could both congratulate your child as well as support our publication. For $25.00, eighth grade parents can include a personal message in a space the size of approximately a business card.

Please consider a message to your upcoming graduate as well as our regular sponsor options. Space is limited, so please respond by Monday, March 2. Return this form along with payment to the main office Attn: Wendy Goldsmith, Re: Amicus.

Middle School Dance: Friday, Feb. 28

On Friday, February 28, all enrolled middle school students are invited to a dance from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the Herring Lobby. The theme is the ‘80s! Students should bring $8 to the door and be picked up promptly at 9:00 p.m.
