8th Grade

8th Grade at Greene Middle School

You have made it to the final year of Middle School. Congratulations! Enjoy your last year here, as you continue to prepare for high school.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child's progress, you can always contact individual teachers or the Team Leader, Mr. Bogardus, x 345, to make an appointment to meet with the entire team of teachers. 

Don't forget to use the Homework Hotline and Home Access to stay up to date on your child's progress at school!! If your child is not yet into the habit of checking his or her grades online, I encourage you to have them start doing so!
