Dear Lab Family,
It's hard to believe that December is here and that students and teachers are already busy working toward Trimester 2 goals. As a reminder, your child's Trimester 1 progress report was sent home on Friday in his/her communication folder. Please be sure to review your child's report and make a note of any questions you would like to discuss at your upcoming parent-teacher conference. If you haven't already scheduled a conference with your child's advisor, be on the lookout for an email to sign up.
I also have some sad news to share with our community; Seth Ellis, our founding Middle School Social Studies teacher, will be leaving Charlotte Lab School. Mr. Ellis will be relocating to Texas to care for a family member who is facing significant health challenges. Mr. Ellis has had an extraordinary impact on the middle school, and while he will be GREATLY missed, his influence on our school culture, students, and families will last.
We are still working to hire a strong replacement for Mr. Ellis; in the meantime, we have hired a sub to cover his advisory and classes until the winter break. Mr. Kadeem Massiah, a former teacher, currently working as a therapist, has agreed to take over Mr. Ellis's teaching load.
We understand that Mr. Ellis’s departure is a tremendous loss for Lab but hope that you will join us in wishing him and his family a smooth transition and health and happiness in their future.
Dr. Mary Moss
