Staff changes

This week we will be saying goodbye to some special staff members and saying hello to some new ones. Ms. Power has been here since September teaching Language Arts and social studies to grade 8 and 9 students.  She has worked diligently with the literacy planning committee to create lessons that support all of our students.  We hope to see her back at MidSun substitute teaching.  Marta Pelletier will be here in January to take over the classes.  She will be available at Parent Teacher interviews to meet parents.

This week we also say goodbye to Lori White who works hand in hand with Scott Campbell in the band program.  She has been working with our band and band parents association since the school opened.  She headed up the bands fundraising arm and field trip support and has made it possible for many students to learn music who might not otherwise have had the chance.  She received a standing ovation at our Christmas concert in thanks for her outstanding dedication to our band program. She is retiring and hopes to travel South with her husband in the New Year.  We thank her for her years of service and hope she won't be a stranger.  We welcome Jennie Shipley as her replacement.  Jennie is no stranger to MidSun or our band program and has been working with Lori this fall for a smooth transition.

This is an exciting week at MidSun.  Wednesday we are asking students to share their Christmas Spirit by wearing Christmas sweaters, Santa hats and red clothing.
