Middle School Principal, Elizabeth Johnston

Grade 6 Potluck

Thank you to all the parents who attended the grade 6 Potluck last week and brought such delicious dishes.  It was a great opportunity for parents and students to meet with advisors, share a meal and then hear all about our middle school program.  Students had a lot of fun with the hats and glasses provided by Mrs. Gunther!

Back To School Night

Our grades 7 and 8 parents are invited to Back to School Night this Thursday, 25 August starting at 7:00 PM in the Gymnasium.  There will be snacks and beverages in the gym with a presentation by the Head of School and MS/HS Principals followed by separate middle school and high school focus meetings.  The middle school parents will move up to the upper commons and following a common presentation, have an opportunity to meet with either the grade 7 or grade 8 team of teachers who will present information on the program for each specific grade.

Community Time

This week in community time, students signed up for ASAs and worked in extended advisory groups on grade specific needs.  Grade 6 were particularly excited as they had just received their computers and focused on those while grade 7 worked with Mrs. Gunther as a whole group on the personal social education curriculum. In next week's community time, House groups will compete in a Geography Tag Team competition.
