Dear 6th & 7th Grade Parents,


I am your child’s 7th grade Social Studies or 6th grade Cougar Connection teacher this year.  Prior to coming to Medical Lake Middle School, I worked 15 years in the private school sector.  My family and I love to spend time outdoors. music, community service, and art also brings me a lot of joy .   I look forward to partnering with you to provide a positive learning experience for you this year.  As we navigate these unusual times, please know that I am here to support you any way that I can.   If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me, I welcome your emails.  

Most Sincerely,

Mrs. Roxanne Wickward




Please see the school's handbook for information on Standard-Based Grading.

Standard-Based Grading

Students at Medical Lake Middle School receive two types of grades – academic grades and non-academic grades.  Academic grades will show their progress in meeting the reading standards.  There are two non-academic grades:

                Work Ethic grade which reflects completing work to the best of their ability and on-time, using class time wisely, showing determination/perseverance.

                Responsibility / Respect grade reflects being prepared and on time for class, respecting others, school property and instructional time.

Activities that tend to impact the non-academic grades in my class are not coming to class prepared and having to leave the class to retrieve items from their locker on a frequent basis, trying to sleep or not engaging themselves in the learning process, distracting self or others from the learning process (talkative when expected to be listening or working), and being unorganized and unable to keep track of assignments or tasks at hand.   We are working on all of the above on a daily basis and I will provide support at school as much as I can. 



Once again, if there are any special circumstances or questions/concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
