Welcome to the Burgundy Team!

To the New Burgundy Team Student,

Welcome to the Burgundy Team! We are looking forward to an exciting year. Rest assured, your Burgundy Team teachers, as well as all of the GMS staff, will be here to help you make the transition to the middle school as smooth as possible. Below is some information that may help lessen some of your concerns.

First, we will start with the supplies you will need for your first day. You need to have:

  • A sturdy back pack (No wheels)
  • One 3” binder with dividers and loose leaf paper (please no zipper binders)
  • #2 pencils with eraser caps
  • A blue or black pen
  • A wide ruled, 70-100 sheet composition notebook-hard cover
  • 3 x 5 index cards
  • A highlighter
  • Page Protectos

* Don’t forget to bring a pleasure reading book!

Individual teachers may have specific requirements for content area classes, but these are the basic supplies you will need on a daily basis for all classes throughout the year.

Make sure you get plenty of rest and a good breakfast for your first day of school on Tuesday, September 6th. We know it is an adjustment for everyone after a long summer, but being prepared will help ease the transition. As you get on the bus in the morning, note the bus number (If you miss this, we will help you locate the information once you are at school.)

Your first day of school will be spent getting to know your schedule, the location of your classes, the procedures to follow, your teachers, and your locker. In fact, the first few days will be devoted to helping you get used to your schedule and your routine. All along the way, we will be here to help you.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Burgundy Team Team leaders, Mrs. Litke (litkel@rockyhillps.com) and Mrs. Matava (matavam@rockyhillps.com).
