Community Time

This week, students participated in an active House Activity where they strategically stacked and unstacked cups in teams, trying to beat out their opposing teams in stacking all their piles of cups.

Learner Profile Goals

Before the October break, middle school students examined their report results to determine their greatest areas of need with regards to effort improvement. Each student has selected three key action steps they will work on throughout the year to improve their effort and achievement. Student action step sheets will be distributed this Friday in Advisory for posting in their locker and at home. We're looking forward to seeing some excellent student growth this year! 

Yearbook Photos

All MS students took their photos this week during advisory, FitUp or Community Time. More information regarding photos will be provided shortly.
