NSMS – 2014 First Day Instructions

We are very pleased that we will be starting school on Monday, September 22, 2014.   In has been a hard start to the year, but we are positive that we are going to have a fantastic year.  We can not wait to see everyone back at school.

The first day of school is a shortened day.  We have a staggered start to get the students placed in class and then we have an early dismisall at 10:30 AM.  If you are a grade six student, please arrive at the school by 8:50 a.m. and gather outside the school entrance by the Hawksnest (playscape).  Your name will be posted with your division number beside it.  Beginning at 9:00 a.m. grade six students will be called into the gym and asked to sit behind a cone with their division number on it.    At that time you will meet your advisory teacher and head to class.  At 9:20 Grade 7 and 8 students' divisions will be posted.  Grade 7 and 8's will be called to the gym at 9:30 AM to meet their advisory teacher.
Please leave your supplies at home on the first day of school. All you need is a pen, pencil and a snack.  When you have been assigned a locker then you can bring the rest of your school supplies.

On behalf of the staff of North Saanich Middle School we would like to welcome everyone back to school.
