Message from Mr. Tempel 5/26

Greetings Middle School and Secondary Parents and Students! 

Here is what's happening with our Middle School and Secondary students:

There arev now THREE weeks to go! 

I though now would be a good time to begin the countdown...

There are now 15 school days left! Remember, this includes Week Without Walls (May 29-June 2) and the last week of school. For our Secondary IV students, this means 10 school days left until graduation


Here are some important things coming up:

  • Week of May 29-June 2 - Week Without Walls! 
  • June 9 - Graduation
  • June 14 - Middle School and Secondary Field Day
  • June 15 -  Middle School and Secondary Trip to Equos Water Park
  • June 16 - Awards/Last Day of School! - Students Released Early 

Week Without Walls

It's here! Trips are leaving next week! Chaperones have sent out information and many of you have had meetings with your student's chaperones. Don't hesitate to reach out to the chaperones with any questions! Don't forget to join the parent WhatsApp groups to keep up with the latest information.
