Middle School Principal, Elizabeth Johnston

Community Time

This week two of our grade 7 advisories led an assembly around two of the Learner Profile traits: "Balance" and "Open-Mindedness". There were awards given to Students of the Month by grade level. Here are the results:

Grade 6: Guiseppe Avaro

Grade 7: Achintya Verma, Naomi Assefa

Grade 8: Addis Kerby, Natasha Barekman

Congratulations to everyone who has been demonstrating excellence in the Learner Profile traits! What an amazing group of students we have in middle school!

Grade 5 Transitions: Cracking the Middle School Code

We had a great turn-out on Monday for our transitions night to welcome grade 5 parents to middle school for next year. Lots of excitement as the new intake become familiarized with the wonders of middle school at ICS. We're looking forward to having you join us next year!

FitUp

This is a reminder that FitUp has officially gone to Tuesdays only. Thursdays will be regular advisory time now until the end of the year.

Common Writing Assessment

Next Wednesday, May 3, all middle school students will participate in our spring Common Writing Assessment task. Students will be in their advisory groups from 12-2 on Wednesday participating in this writing activity. There is no studying for this assessment task. Students are only expected to use the time they have during this activity and their best organizing and writing skills to demonstrate their abilities in writing. These assessments are NOT included in report grades but they help us better understand student growth in writing over the year.
