Transition to middle school: new section on blog

As we go through the process of transitioning to a middle school structure beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, we will be sharing information with our families and community. There are a number of meetings and discussions taking place. Parent reps have shared information with our Family of Schools rep, and the information has been shared and discussed with the principals of the transitioning schools. Please rest assured that parent voices have been heard and comments/concerns have been taken into account.

We will continue to post any updates as we receive them. Please check back here, and use the left-hand menu to see all relevant posts (category: Junior High to Middle School).
