Dear families of NMS,

We have reached the end of a school year like no other.  Despite all of the many changes, our students and staff have persevered together and grown stronger as a result.  Teachers have been challenged to adapt lesson delivery approaches to keep students engaged.  Support staff have all taken on additional roles and responsibilities to assist students with various parts of their day.  Students have also supported one another both socially and emotionally.  And parents, guardians and caregivers have been there every step along the way to support their children and the school staff.  It has definitely been a team approach that has allowed the school community at NMS to maintain focus during this unprecedented pandemic.

As we wind down the year, I would like to take this opportunity to wish our grade 8 students a fond farewell and success as they move on to academic and exrta-curricular opportunities in high school.  I would also like to acknowledge staff who will be leaving NMS at the end of the school year.  I wish you best of luck and thank you for the lasting impact you’ve had on the staff and students at Niverville Middle School.  I would also like to extend best wishes to all students and families who will be moving away and leaving our school community.

As we prepare for next school year, we are excited to welcome our incoming grade 5 students.  In addition to our returning staff, there will also be new faces on staff next year.  Our hope is that we can get back to the level of normalcy that we’ve grown accustomed to in years past that will allow us to thrive together in 2021-2022.

With that, I would like to wish students, parents & caregivers, and school staff a safe, restful and rewarding summer.  Hopefully we will all get the opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends and come back to school with a sense of rejuvenation in the fall.

Respectfully and with gratitude,

Craig Cumming
