NEW STAFF FOR 2020/2021

As we near the end of this school year and say goodbye to friends moving on, we are actively preparing for next school year and the arrival of new teachers.

In previous newsletters, we introduced you to our new principals: Secondary Principal, Chris Rehm (HERE), and Elementary Principal, Will Hatten (HERE).

In addition to these two dynamic and experienced new principals, we also have several other teachers hired from the USA for various teaching positions. We will introduce you to these new teachers, as well as future hires, in the coming months.

VIDEO RESOURCE FROM STUDENT SERVICES

Last month, we featured a video from Mr. Q, School Counselor, about quieting our busy brains. Mr. Q has created another video resource for you, “Gathering Information.”

From Mr. Q: "Another way to quiet false alarms is to get accurate and complete information/news. Getting the proper information is important. This video will cover how to get accurate news on what happened, why it happened, and where it happened."
