Parent Day in the Middle 
The Middle School is delighted to offer Parent Day in the Middle. Join us on Thursday, November 7 for a "deep dive" into the MS program, and an opportunity to experience MS classes. We will begin at 8:15 a.m. in the Library for a conversation about MS curriculum and our counseling program. We will then attend classes, and end the morning by coming together for a follow-up conversation.

This event asks for a time commitment of 8:15 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

Spaces are limited to 20 parents. You will receive an email confirmation if you are one of the 20. The presentation will be similar to the Parent Days we have held in the past, with different classes to visit. We will repeat this session again in March.

Please use this form to sign up. Thank you!

Fiestas de Quito
Fiestas de Quito are approaching! This year we will celebrate Quito with traditional games, food and music. Middle School students will have the opportunity to play many traditional games that are still seen in the city.
For this celebration to be a success, we need your help. We want to involve parents actively in this celebration. Everyone is invited to be part of this great celebration on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at the Athletic Center from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Likewise, parents who wish may be in charge of organizing the games, the music or the food (provided by the school) station. For this, they will need to coordinate with the Spanish teachers of their children. If you want to help with the celebration, please add your name on this page. On Thursday, November 7, we will have an organization meeting from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in class C-26. For any questions, please contact your child's spanish teacher.
Warm regards,
MS Spanish Department
