Message from Jonathan Davis, MS Principal


Greetings Middle School Families,

We are working on the finishing touches in preparation to host all of you this week.  Middle School Back to School Night is Thursday, September 20. Please come, meet your student’s teachers, and get a small sampling of what life is like in the Middle School.  This event, intended for parents/guardians only, is also a great way to connect with your fellow parents/guardians.  You need to know your student’s HomeBase advisor, but we will have all of the other needed information and directions.

Please plan to arrive a bit early: There will be light appetizers and drinks starting at 6:00 in the Schenck Auditorium Lobby.  Also at 6:00 in Umpleby Hall, Mr. Egan will be presenting on the D-E 360° International program’s Spring Break 2019 Peru trip that is open to all interested 8th graders. Then, as part of a “soft start” at 6:15 in the Auditorium, Grade 8 Dean Mr. Aitken will also be presenting on the Discovery classes. For a Back to School Night parking map click here; additional details are noted below, and we’ll look forward to seeing you this Thursday evening!
