Back to School Night
We are looking forward to sharing the Middle School with you at Back to School Night on Tuesday! We will begin at 5:30 in the auditorium foyer with refreshments and mingling. The presentation will begin promptly at 6:00pm.

Discover Ecuador
Thank you to everyone who has paid for the upcoming Discover Ecuador trip. Payment is due on Tuesday, September 4. If you need an extension, or have any questions, please contact the MS Office. You may find valuable trip information on the Discover Ecuador website.

Service Learning
Service is a cornerstone of the educational program at Academia Cotopaxi. In the Middle School, students are expected to complete a required number of service hours. The requirement is 6 hours per semester for Grade 6, 7 hours per semester for Grade 7, and 8 hours per semester for Grade 8. Students have been discussing this in their mentor classes. You may find more information on the MS Service Learning website.

Math Consultant
Our math department will be growing professionally over the next two weeks by working with Dr. Hilary Kreisberg. She is a mathematics consultant who will be providing professional development to our ES, MS, and HS math teachers. One learning outcome of this visit is to enhance our ability to provide personalized learning in the mathematics classroom.

MAP Testing
MAP testing is on the horizon for September 10, 11, 12. We will run a special schedule that week, which allows us to test each morning. It is especially important that your child gets a good night sleep, eats a healthy breakfast, and is on time to school during these days. Thank you.

I look forward to receiving you in the Middle School - please drop by and say hello anytime.

With kind regards,

Sheryl Gruber
