Eblast from the Head of Middle School, 1/10

Dear Middle School Families,

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. The Middle School Poetry Recitation Finals last Thursday were marvelous. Thank you to all the extraordinary students and teachers who came together to participate and support the finalists - they were amazing! Of the eleven students who made it to the finals, three were chosen as winners. Congratulations go out to Lily JonesWalker Craven and Zander Eaton. There was also an audience favorite, Rylie Conway, great job everyone!

We are gearing up for the end of the first semester on January 22, so please make sure to remind your student to check their Mybackpack accounts and emails for any missing work or notifications from teachers as they begin to finalize grades. Teachers will be working hard to support our students and make sure they finish the first semester strong! I encourage all families to contact teachers if they have any questions about student progress.

Students will be sent a google form next week so that they may make their new elective class choices. This year, because class sizes were limited, we are asking students to make a change and select a different course so that other students can have an opportunity to experience a course in which they were not able to enroll last August. 

Annual Fund Campaign
Please consider donating to the Annual Fund. This year, we have a generous donor who has pledged matching funds! That means, for every dollar donated we earn TWO for our school. This matching funds grant ends on January 15th! We understand that this is a difficult time financially for everyone, but any amount you are able to give will make a big difference. Annual Gift
