June 17, 2018
What a great weekend! Seems like summer hit us with a vengeance. Hopefully you were able to find some fun ways to stay cool. It is our last full week of school and there is lots going on. Please read through carefully.
New Information To Share:
Student Success Day: This Friday is Student Success Day. This is designed to help students who need some time catching up on work to meet learning outcome to have time with their teachers. Students do not need to attend school on Friday unless specifically requested by their teacher. Parents will be notified if students are required to attend.
Langley Secondary School Grad Walk: This Thursday is our annual LSS Grad Walk. The graduates of Langley Secondary will be coming back to HD Stafford Middle to celebrate their success while casting a vision for our students on what lays ahead. This is an amazing event for both our Skyhawks and the Saints.
Green And Gold Day: To coincide with the LSS Grad Walk, Thursday will be Green and Gold Day!
Theatre Sports Day: Some of our students will be participating in our annual Theatre Sports competition on Thursday June 21st. Parents are welcome to attend.
Locker Clean-Up: Locker clean up for students is coming on June 20th and 21st. Please encourage your child to consider looking for long lost lunches and such prior to those days so that it goes a little smoother for the entire school.
