We recognize that a parent event scheduled for 8:30 am on a weekday presents a conflict for those with other commitments at that time. So, many thanks to those Grade 8 parents who joined us for the presentation on February 12, with the aim of introducing you to the Grade 8 PeOPle Project (POP). The slides from the presentation can be reviewed by clicking on the link below. More detailed information is also provided on the PoP Blog.
Happy New Year! We welcome back returning students and their families, and we are warmly welcoming a group of new middle school students and parents.
We invite new parents to complete this survey to provide us with helpful feedback about the transition and orientation process to date.

After an action-packed and productive 2017-2018 school year, we wish all our students/families and our staff a wonderful summer break. If you are among the ‘leavers’, we are grateful for your presence and participation in our community, and we wish you all the best as you continue your journey, adventures, and learning elsewhere in the world. For those of you who are returning, we look forward to welcoming you back warmly in August. Travel safely, enjoy time with family and friends, and immerse yourselves in activities that help to restore and revitalize you.
