One of the best week’s of your child’s school year is quickly approaching - Discover Ecuador is almost here! The MS Faculty has been doing much “behind the scenes” preparation and your child will be preparing during FLEX this week. As a reminder, you can find the packing list for each grade level, and general trip information on the Middle School Discover Ecuador website

Please ensure that your child is ON TIME to school on Monday morning (8:00am on Sept 24). We will all begin in mentor classrooms and go to the trip bus as a group. 

You will receive one email communication from your child’s trip each day.

All trips are scheduled to return to AC before 2:30pm on Friday (Sept 28). Students may take the bus home - or be greeted by a smiling parent :)

We are incredibly excited for our big week! Please help your child at home by packing well in advance and talking about their emotions as they get ready to spend the week away from home. They will be excited and nervous, just like you. Please do take the time to talk, and contact the MS Office with any questions.

Parent Day in the Middle 
The Middle School is delighted to offer the first bi-annual Parent Day in the Middle. Join us on Wednesday, October 10 for a "deep dive" into the MS program, and an opportunity to experience MS classes. We will begin at 8:15 a.m. in the Library for a conversation about MS curriculum and our counseling program, we will then attend classes, and end the morning by coming together for a follow-up conversation. 

This event asks for a time commitment of 8:15 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. 

Spaces are limited to 20 parents. You will receive an email confirmation if you are one of the 20. If you are not part of the group in October, you will have another opportunity to sign up for the second semester Parent Day in the Middle.

Please use this form to sign up. Thank you!

***We are still in need of one more Grade 7 parent rep. Please let me know if you would like to take on this important role!

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

With kind regards,
