The Goal of our school is to do all we can
to ensure that each student has
a great middle school experience!
We are a grade 4-8 school located in Lac La Biche, Alberta, Canada. Aurora Middle school has approximately 425 students enrolled this year, with three classes of grade 4, 5 and 6 and four classes of grade 7 and 8.
WHAT IS MIDDLE SCHOOL?
The middle school philosophy is based on research from educators and psychologists in the area of child development. The middle years are a time of great change for children, not only physical, but social and emotional as well. The middle school program is designed to provide students with opportunities to find out who they are and where they fit in an often confusing world. While endeavouring to help the “whole” child develop, there is still a strong emphasis on academic growth and achievement.
I would like to welcome all students, parents, and staff to our school community. For our new students and parents, I trust that the transition to Aurora will be a smooth one. Each new school year is an opportunity for renewal and marks another chapter in your child’s educational journey. Our hope is that you will have a great year, one in which you will experience success and an excitement for learning. Aurora staff will continue to work hard to provide the means to reach this end.
To parents, we believe your involvement in education is extremely important to the success of your child. We will do our very best to communicate with you on a regular basis and we ask that you communicate with us and remain involved in your child’s education.
We have a number of very exciting opportunities for students to be involved in extracurricular programs this year and I encourage you to look over the following opportunities and consider joining one or more
- Mountain Biking
- Cross-Country Running
- Track & Field
- Leadership / Student Union
If you are interested in any of these opportunities please pay careful attention to the announcements at the beginning of the year or talk to your teachers about how you can join in these wonderful opportunities. I am looking forward to getting to know each of you and having a great year at Aurora Middle School.
