An update from one of our Alpenglow graduates, halfway through their Grade 7 year, and just finishing their second semester at LGMS with one more to go.
"I am now more than halfway through my first-year at LGMS. The transition was smooth and now that things are settled I really enjoy the school. I have lots more friends than I did in any of my years at Alpenglow, just because there are more people. At lunch we usually all go to Intramural's and play Bump in the gym. I am really enjoying school sports. So far this year I've been on every sports team, and I hope that by the end of the year I'll have been on them all. In class, we are working on heat and temperature, the War of 1812, fractions and the Hobbit."
Many families have questions surrounding how the transition from Alpenglow School into another school will go for their child, or has gone for other students after finishing Grade 6.
Here we will give you insight, information and personal stories of how it has been for some of our Alpenglow School graduates.
