Hello Middle School Families, welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! We are looking forward to seeing (whether in-person or online) all of our returning students and meeting all of our new students.
To kick off the year we will be having our Middle School orientation on Thursday, September 3, and Friday, September 4. For our sixth-grade students, the event is Flight School and for our seventh and eighth-grade students, the event is Registration and Open House. Each student only needs to attend one of the days, as the second day is a repeat of the first day in order to allow us to space out our in-person participants.
At the orientation both the Deans will be outlining the procedures for the school year and the grade-level teachers will be providing a brief orientation to their courses. All of the presentations will be recorded and available for viewing on Canvas (our learning management system). Instructions for new students and parents to access Canvas will be coming in a separate email.
Masks are required to attend. Due to COVID-19 spacing requirements, only one parent may attend with each student. There are a limited number of available slots per day per grade level.
Sixth-grade Flight School will take place on either September 3 or September 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Seventh-grade Registration and Open House will take place on either September 3 or September 4 from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
Eighth-grade Registration and Open House will take place on either September 3 or September 4 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
If you choose to attend in-person, please plan to arrive at the MVA campus in ample time to allow for parking, as all sessions will begin promptly at their start time. Remember, the event is being recorded and will be available on Canvas by end of day September 4 for all who are unable or prefer not to attend in-person.
