The past few weeks have been a learning opportunity in resilience and adaptability for all of us in Ecuador. The Middle School greatly appreciates your support at home in helping the continuation of learning, under these less than ideal circumstances. Please continue to check in with your child and ask about his/her online learning experience. Assignments were shared on Edmodo or emailed to students.

Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences
The Middle School is scheduled for Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences on Thursday, October 24. Please read the following for important information on the conference structure and how to sign up for conference times.

  • Students must attend the conference with their parent(s).
  • Conferences are scheduled for 10 minutes.
  • Parents are asked to sign up for a maximum of four teachers (including your child’s mentor teacher). Unfortunately, there are not enough sessions for every parent to meet with every teacher. You will need to prioritize which teachers you would like to meet. If you would like to meet with more than four teachers, we invite you to schedule time with the teacher on another day.
  • A few “cross-divisional” teachers (Owen Krebs, Jordan Englehart, and Erik Iverson) will not follow the same sign-up procedure. HS conferences are drop in and those teachers will be in their classrooms and available for a drop in conference.

We use Skyward for sign-ups. Please click here for instructions on how to sign up for conferences. I encourage you to sign up soon, to ensure you receive the times you prefer.

Please contact the Tech office, Santiago Albuja at:, if you need assistance with the Skyward sign-ups. We look forward to seeing you on October 24!

MS Social
We have our first MS Social on Friday, October 25. The Social is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Gym. Sorry, parents, the Social is only for students. Students will receive more details next week. Here are a few items for parents:

  • Students should arrive by 5:30 p.m. and everyone must be picked up promptly at 7:30 p.m.
  • If your child is going home with another family, please let Sheryl know in advance of the Social.
  • No MS student is allowed to walk home after the Social.
  • The Social is only for AC Middle School students.

Symphony Concert
We are sorry to announce that the OSNE (Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional del Ecuador) concerts have been cancelled for Wednesday, October 16. We hope to reschedule in the future. Thank you for understanding.

I hope to see you on campus soon.

With kind regards,
