Principal's Message

It is with great pleasure that I welcome all returning students and families back to PRMS for another exciting and productive year. I think you will see that PRMS is a fantastic school with great students, a dedicated staff, and involved community who work together to ensure the best possible education for our youth. Together we will strive to continue our efforts toward building a school where students are healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.  

The Middle School years are an exciting time in the life of an adolescent. I encourage students and families to become actively involved in the many things the school has to offer. Pine Ridge has a wide variety of activities, clubs, and athletic teams that students can join and participate in. Middle school is also a great time to build important academic skills, grow as a person, meet new friends, and hopefully discover new skills and interests.

As we begin the 2015-2016 year, take some time to look ahead and talk as a family about the following:

  • Discuss the Panther’s Pact (respect for self, respect for others, respect for the environment and the learning that occurs in that environment).
  • Set goals for the year ahead. Be specific, write them down, refer to them often. 
  • Talk with your child throughout the year. What they are learning? How do they feel about school?
  • Keep the home-school lines of communication open.

I’m looking forward to a great year  and I look forward to working with you and your child in the weeks and months to come.

Current News and Announcements
  • Transition Information for Students, Parents and Guardians

    On February 21, 2017, the Nova Scotia government passed legislation to implement a contract for members of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union.

    Please know the transition in schools will take some time. We know that our teachers have always been committed to providing the best education possible, so classroom learning and classroom-related activities for students will continue to be their priority.

    Extra-curricular activities such as clubs or events may resume, however, this is at the discretion of staff organizers. The Nova Scotia School Athletic Federation will work with schools to determine the next steps for school sports.

    We continue to ask that students who do not travel on buses arrive at school no earlier than 20 minutes before the start of classes, and stay after school no longer than 20 minutes after classes end. Your child’s school will communicate with you about changes to school arrivals and departures as needed or when more information is available.

    Please continue to communicate with your child’s school if you have questions about your child's learning, supervision, schedules, extra-curricular activities or events.

    Thank you | Wela’lin | Merci
