Middle School - September 8 / 2017


A Note from the Middle School Principal

Dear Parents,

Congratulations to all of our students for making it through the first week of school! The bright, new, and open spaces have made the learning environment more fun. However, still at the heart of student learning is the faculty and support team. We are fortunate to have a world-class faculty group committed to each student in Middle School.  

A gentle reminder that the Homeroom Teacher is the first point of contact for all social, emotional matters and school operation information. Please contact subject teachers for academic matters and if you are seeing a persistent social issue, please contact the Middle School Counsellor, Glen Blair.

I reiterate that my focus for the Middle School is to nurture the social emotional and executive functioning skills needed for academic learning and growth. Sometimes, this is a challenge at the start of the year. Expect mixed emotions, as students learn to better regulate and recognize the range of emotions that are associated with growing up.

I look forward to creating new experiences and stories in the year ahead.

Sincerely,
Helen Gin
Middle School Principal
