Dear Parents,

Thanks for partnering with us once again as we have begun another school year. My son pointed out that our job in education has an interesting rhythm as we work together for ten months and then we don’t see each other for two months. We then come back together and start another year. Every year when the staff comes together the third week of August there is both a lot of energy and excitement as we make plans and get ready for another school year. We hope and pray the school year is a positive experience for each student. To help the journey go smoothly each grade level has put together a ton of information in this Parent Slides Presentation. You may also watch the following videos to get to know the staff of the middle school.

Let me know if you have any questions or thoughts about the information presented.

God bless!

Tom Strikwerda
