Dear Parents,

The middle school staff and I hope the first week of school was fun and exciting for your students. As the classes transitioned from orientation week and community building events to the core subjects, we have been able to watch the students settle into the school year much more confidently and calmly than they seemed on the first few days.

It has been exciting to watch the students start their classes. The staff and I feel truly blessed to be able to be working with the team we have this year and while there are many staff members we miss, the new staff has a wealth of expertise, experience and enthusiasm.

We look forward to seeing all of the seventh and eighth grade parents at Back to School Night on Tuesday, September 24 at 6:45 p.m. We will begin the evening in the high school auditorium. We hope that after attending Back to School Night, you find the passion, expertise and academic approach to education as motivating as we hope the students do here at school…most days.
