"It's all those little things that at their stage of development become everything to them," said Sandra Bickel, principal of Webber Middle School in the Poudre School District.
Both Fiedler and Bickel emphasized the importance of giving children the space to handle challenges on their own. Bickel said homework is another area where parents should show support but not take over. She said parents can help by focusing their praise not on talent or natural ability, but the hard work their child is doing. "Praise the effort," she said. "Parents can let their kids struggle through some of that and not enable [them]." 3. Don't end your involvement; change it Parent involvement is still important as children grow older - the form just needs to change, middle school educators said. Classroom volunteering is usually not appropriate after middle school, they said, but parents can show interest by having dinner with their children, asking about their day and monitoring their phone use and social media presence. "If parents just wash their hands of it and give them free reign…it can be very damaging to kids," said Bickel. At the middle school level, Bickel and Fiedler said red flags that may indicate the transition isn't going well include students complaining of headaches, stomach aches, sleeplessness or simply not wanting to go to school.

Webber Middle School Principal Sandra Bickel said she also has seen an increase in need, often where teachers and families least expect it.
"In some ways, it's hidden, at least in our community," Bickel said.

Webber Principal Sandra Bickel said the school was given a week's notice that the representatives would be coming and informed the students that the men would be present.
"We asked them to be polite and respectful to the Gideons men who had the right to be on the public sidewalk," Bickel said. "We also told students it was their right to take a New Testament or not." While Gideons representatives do have a legal right to be on the sidewalk, Bickel said the men allegedly violated their training protocols by taking photographs of students and putting Bibles into the bicycle basket of one student who said she did not want one. Three Webber staff members, including Assistant Principal Luis Camas, were on duty during the distribution and stopped the men from taking pictures, Bickel said. Bickel said she contacted the men responsible for testament distribution in Fort Collins when she was informed of the protocol violations. "Both were very apologetic that their training protocols had been violated," Bickel said. "We want to be respectful of their right to distribute the New Testaments, but we also want them to be respectful of our young students, many of whom have been taught to avoid strangers and not take items from strangers." In order to avoid future controversy, Bickel said the school and representatives from Gideons International will have a meeting before next year's distribution to discuss proper protocol when approaching students.

At Webber Middle School, decreasing class sizes is one of the ways in which potential mill-levy funds would be used, according to the school's principal, Sandy Bickel.
Bickel said the school's most pressing issue is the increase in class size. On average, 31 students are in each classroom this year, she said, with some classes having as many as 38 students. "We're trying to help every kid learn and grow and to educate every kid. Just the mechanics of doing a science lab, when you have an open flame, or working with a chemical - it's almost scary with that situation," she said. The staff at Webber would use its estimated $189,000 in mill funds to provide more sections of core classes in the schedule and have more literacy and math coaches. The needs at Webber's facility would exceed $5 million in bond funding, making it the middle school that would receive the most funding from the bond issue. Bickel said the building has undergone very little change since it was first built 21 years ago, with the exception of an expansion of the cafeteria and resurfacing that floor.
