Journey middle schoole — At a glance

The new school year will see area students write on activities and events

School has started again and Journey is as busy as ever.

Basketball has started up for all grades and they’re working hard to represent Journey. Go Team!

As well as basketball, intra-mural soccer is going on and the competition couldn’t be more intense.

Cross-country runners did well by placing Journey second out of the competition.

Mindstorm robotics is up and running. For those who don’t know what that is, it’s LEGO with robotics mixed in so you can control the robots. Check it out if you’re interested in building things.

Of course what we all love is exploratories and they are happening. There are a couple of new ones this year such as: Architecture and Engineering, Viva Mexico, Jewerly Design, Woodworking and Lip Dub Music Video. Students are loving them! Because we just can’t get enough of our teachers, there is a parent/teacher conference on November 21.

One of the big events happening at Journey middle school this year is a reconnection of our friendship with the city of Natori, Japan. Students will have the opportunity to go visit Japan for 10 days in the spring of 2014. In 2015 future Journey and Edward Milne community school students here will host the Japanese students. This will be a yearly thing at Journey.

The school is having a Halloween Dance October 30 from 7 to 9 p.m. There will be food, refreshments and music. Come hangout with your friends! Costumes are encouraged, but you don’t have to wear one.

Our very own band students from the string section performed on October 27 at EMCS. Also the Victoria Youth Orchestra will be performing at Journey on November 14. Maybe our own band students can get some tips!

We run to be here!
