MS Jun 11

There is always so much to be grateful for at the end of a school year. I believe the Battle Bot photo above is a wonderful symbol of our year in Middle School - a sunny day, joyful students, celebrating learning in a real life situation, the entire MS cheering their peers, a true Middle School event. We have had many of these events during the course of school year 2018-19. The Middle School has grown and become incredibly cohesive, with much to celebrate, including our new uniquely MS schedule. Much of what teachers do happens behind the scenes, and students are the beneficiaries via their classroom learning experiences. I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the MS faculty - their dedication to your child’s learning is incredible. You are very fortunate parents. I would also like to thank you, parents, for your support of the MS program. The home/school partnership is critical to our success in educating the whole child. We have a full week ahead, and will spend it celebrating 2018-19, and preparing for 2019-20!

Counselor’s Corner
It has been another incredible year working with Faculty, Administration, and all of your children to create this special Middle School Culture. You can feel the good energy and warmth while walking down the halls of our little corner of AC. We wrapped up our Cougar Time lessons this year with Leadership and Growth Mindset, reflecting back on the year while also looking forward. I am excited to see where this next school year takes us. Thank you all for your honesty and trust in working with your children. It is an honor to be a part of each student’s (and parent’s) Middle School journey. I hope the summer months leave everyone rested and revitalized for 2019-20!!

The Grade 8 Moving On Celebration on Wednesday, June 12, will begin at 1:00 p.m. in the auditorium and the afternoon will end with a reception at 3:00 p.m. Although the event is not formal, we do ask that students “dress up”. Slacks, collared shirts, skirts, simple dresses, are all appropriate. Please help your child make a good outfit decision on Wednesday. Thank you. Please contact this MS Office if you have any questions about the event.
