Mini X - the lists are completed and our first session starts on Friday. Please understand many of you will not get your top choices. With 560 students, it is impossible to predict the interests and provide the desired opportunities for all students. Many of the choices filled up quickly which forced student choices to move down the priority line of choice. The purpose of the Mini X is to have you explore something different.  Remember, the lists are based on first come first serve.  The sessions are offered over the next 3 Fridays. 

Report Cards: Term 1 report card goes home this Friday. Please have your parents or guardian sign the report card envelope and return it on Monday.

Parents:

 

Mini X- the sign ups are complete and our first session starts this Friday.  Please understand most students will not get their 1st or 2nd choice. With 560 students, it is impossible to predict the interests and provide the opportunities for all students. Many of the highly desired choices filled up quickly which forced student choices to move down the priority line of choice. The purpose of the Mini X is to have students explore something different, so if your child did not get what they want that is OK. We have tried our best to get all students in one of their top 5 choices. 

Report Cards:  Reminder that Term 1 report card comes out this Friday.  Please sign the envelope and return it on Monday so we know the report has made it home. 


Do you have any sample beauty products you'd like to donate to a worthy cause?  Mrs. Prevost in the Learning Commons is organizing
'Stocking Stuffers for Women in Need'. If you are interested, you can help by donating extra toiletries, small trinkets, jewelry, make-up items, candy, etc. that would be suitable to put in a Christmas stocking. Please send your donation to the office.
