MS Principal Letter
We are very excited to begin the 2016-2017 school year and hope that you have had a wonderful summer. A very warm welcome to all our new families joining us, we look forward to sharing strong relations that will help support your children. To our returning families, welcome back and hope we continue working together to build an environment where your children can continue to grow and develop in character as well as knowledge.
As always, our middle school staff have been participating in ongoing professional learning opportunities, realigning the curriculum, and planning lessons in a continuous effort to ensure that our students are receiving an engaging and challenging middle school experience. Our first week has already witnessed our middle school Meet and Greet where this year new students have been buddied up with returning students to help them find their way, student assemblies, and our ASA’s (after school activities) fair. Students interested in joining an activity or sport should sign up fast as places fill up quickly.
Two important resources that you will need to refer to during the year are the Student-Parent Handbook and the school calendar (included in the handbook). Students have already been issued their handbooks on the first day of school. This book assists students with the school policies and regulations, and will help students with the management of assignments and workload. Please take the time during the first few days of school to review the content of the handbook with your child. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us. We believe that it is important that a positive healthy relationship exists between parents and the school. This provides children with a sense of security which is a foundation for a good learning experience and it helps them take responsibility for their own learning.
I would like to encourage you to continue to play an active role in your children’s learning by talking to them about their studies, encouraging them to read for pleasure, making sure they complete their work on time and regularly checking their portal.
Looking forward to a very fulfilling year!
