Elizabeth Johnston, Middle School Principal


This year we have revised our FitUp! program to include more activities and more student choice. All students filled out a survey in the week before break in which they selected activities they would like to participate in. Mrs. Milone and Mr. Friesen have organized all of the students into a wide range of activities. Tuesday students participated in Green Team, bowling, capture the flag, basketball, tag and soccer to name a few.  Student will continue in these activities for multiple weeks and are reminded to wear their house hats.

Community Time

This week community time was spent in Extended Advisory. With FitUp! Now two mornings a week, our Advisory curriculum continues in the scheduled afternoon sessions.

Halloween Social

All middle school students are invited to the Halloween Social to be held at the SEC on Friday from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. Parents are reminded to pick up their children promptly from the SEC and students are reminded that they do not have access to the main campus Friday night.
