Greetings and welcome to our school website!
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Dr. George Johnson Middle School community. Dr. George Johnson School is Evergreen School Division's only middle school, serving students in grades 5 to 8. This unique circumstance has allowed us to tailor our school philosophy and programming directly to this distinct group of learners.
Attending Dr. George Johnson School is a perfect transition for high school. In a safe and supportive small school environment, students will begin to assume more responsibility for their learning, become more self-aware as individuals and form new friendships which will smooth the move to a new and larger school in grade 9.
Our school mission of "Our school is a place where all students can achieve success" and division mission "Evergreen School Division will engage students in learning to become contributing citizens of a democratic society" identifies our purpose. We strive to work with our local community and all stakeholders to continually work towards this common goal.
Our school and division vision, Learning Today to Improve Tomorrow describes our endeavor to ensure that the work we are doing in schools is providing our students with the skills and competencies to become our future leaders.
Our school Parent Advisory Council is an important partner and meets monthly. This parent group provides the school with important information from the parental perspective and works very hard to provide additional opportunities to our students. All parents are welcome to become involved by either attending meetings or volunteering to help with PAC events.
Please share with your child's teacher any information regarding his or her special needs that will help us effectively serve your family. We believe that communication among parents, students, and teachers is critical in assuring student success.
We hope this web site will provide you with a thorough overview of our school. I invite you to review it carefully and if any questions remain regarding the school and its programs, do not hesitate to speak to your child's teacher or myself.
Looking forward to the year ahead of us,
