Don't forget to sign up for Student Led Conferences this week if you have not already done so. Please check last week's post for the conference sign up link if you still need to sign up. All students are expected to attend Student Led Conferences on Tuesday the 19th with their parents/ guardians. There are no regular classes scheduled for Tuesday and students should only come to school at their designated conference time.
The next PTA Meeting for all parents, guardians, and teachers is on:
Date: Monday, 18 April
Time: 8:00-9:15 am
Location: Middle School Hall on the 2nd floor
Derek Pinchbeck and I will be discussing the role of homework in the lives of students at the meeting. Those interested in learning more about the latest educational research related to homework can click on the link below.

Grade 8-9 Transition Day
Over the next several weeks, we will be holding transition activities for our 8th graders to prepare them for high school. Our MYP Coordinator, Fang Shelly will be visiting with each student to discuss arts and language choices for 8th graders soon. Additionally, 8th graders will spend most of the day at the high school on April 25th to sit in on classes, speak to students and get a feel for the "Preston Road experience." This will be an exciting day for our 8th graders and I'm sure they will want to talk to you about their day at the dinner table next Monday! If you have any questions about our 8th grade transition day or course choices in 9th grade, please contact Fang Shelly. (email@example.com)
