(G6 -8) Week of Welcome Comes to a Close

16

Dear Parents of Middle School Students,

Thank you so much for joining the events that took place during our WOW: Week of Welcome!  We were so excited to see so many of you there.  From the Virtual School Information Session on Aug. 5, the New Family Orientation on Aug. 9, the Virtual School Follow Up Meeting on Aug. 9, the Remote-Learner Orientation on Aug. 10, and the MS Parent Orientation on Aug. 10, we were able to connect, share information, and get started on the year together as a team.   

Your children also had a series of WOW activities to get them oriented to the start of the year.  We were so happy to see their smiling faces at Orientation, the first MS Assembly of the Year, in each of their classes, and in the 1:1 meetings, they had with their advisors. As shared yesterday, your children also had a powerful guest speaker on Thursday, Ms. Chinh Le Ostrander, LMSW, who discussed the importance of self-care and provided valuable strategies that we can all use to manage and take care of our mental health during this difficult time.  

So let’s keep the momentum going!  Please make plans to attend these upcoming parent events.
