Grading Policy

Students start each class period with a 100. Students who do not dress out properly for class drop to a 75 for the day. Non dress and non participation without a doctors note will result in a grade of 50 for the day. After 3 unexcused non dresses in a 6 weeks, parent contact will be made, the student will receive a morning detention and subsequent non dresses will result in a 50 for the day. Parents please encourage your child to come prepared for class.

Athletics and Sports

The athletic program at Pershing Middle School dynamically supports the academic mission of the school. Pershing MS sets high expectations for its coaches and student-athletes. Interscholastic athletics is historically a significant part of the total education program. They offer opportunity for students to be part of a team, to serve the school, to enjoy fellowship, and to develop intellectually, physically and emotionally. Our desire at Pershing is that through their participation in sports, student athletes will have fun and build lifelong relationships. The ultimate product of this investment will be healthy adults who contribute to their communities in a positive way.
