Information To Share

Internet Safety Presentations: Given the age of our students, it is an important time to have them learn how to be safe on-line. So to that end, we have Sandra Averill from the district coming this week to do some presentations with our students.

Taste of LSS: This Friday our grade 7 & 8 students will be going to Langley Secondary School for the annual Taste of LSS. They will get a chance to experience first hand the awesome spirit and learning waiting for them in grade 9. Please be sure you have returned the permission form by this Wednesday.

EdCamp35: This year, Langley will be having its third annual EdCamp35 on Saturday April 16th and we are excited to host it here at HD Stafford Middle School. This is an amazing day where passionate educators, parents, students and others come and share ideas, questions and have powerful conversations about student learning. This is a free event (and include a food truck lunch) to be sure to head to www.edcamp35.com to register.

Bottle For Athletics: HD Stafford Middle has opened an account at the Langley Bottle Depot (20137 Industrial Avenue) It’s an easy NO SORTING drop off service with proceeds going right back into our athletics programs. The account is under HD Stafford Athletics please specify this when you or your teams drop off any recyclables. Encourage all of your teams and parents to use this account, and pump it up as the holidays are a great time. Thanks for helping build HD Stafford Athletics.
