Happy Thanksgiving. Hope everyone had a great long weekend and took time to reflect on all they are grateful for. We have a busy week so here’s what’s coming up.

Information To Share:

Interim Reports: Students will be receiving interim reports this Friday to bring home. This is meant as a snapshot of how they are progressing. Please talk to home room teachers if you have any questions.

Shake Zone Simulator: This Friday, we will have the ICBC Shake Zone Simulator at HDSMS for our grade 6 students. It is a “cottage” that allows students to feel what an 8.0 magnitude earthquake would feel like. Students must have the permission room filled out to participate. Please talk to your home room teacher if you need one.

SOGI Collective Club: This Thursday is our first meeting of our SOGI (Sexual Orientation/ Gender Identity) Collective Club. This is for ALL STUDENTS who wish to support and work towards SOGI initiatives at HD Stafford Middle.
