Information for the week of February 1

Welcome to Second Semester!
The start of second semester signals the beginning of the planning process for the next school year. As such there are some important dates coming up with regard to choosing courses. Below is a list from our Guidance department of upcoming dates and events related to course selection for the 2016-1017 school year.

Course Selection Assemblies
The student assemblies to discuss course selections for the 2016-2017 school year are scheduled for the following dates:
Tuesday, February 9th – Grade 11 & any returning grade 12 students (during period 2)
Wednesday, February 10th – Grade 10 homerooms (during period 1)
Thursday, February 11th – Grade 9 homerooms (during period 1)

Option Fair: February 18th
During the Option Fair students will have an opportunity to visit a variety of classrooms to hear about the elective courses available to them for the upcoming school year. We hope that this will give students the ability to make informed choices when choosing their courses of study. The schedule for that day will be as follows:

Period 1: 9:00 – 9:55 a.m.
Option Fair: 1 10:05 – 10:15 a.m.

Online Course Selection for 2016-2017 – myBlueprint
The online course selection ‘window’ opens in myBlueprint on Friday, February 19 and closes on Friday, February 26.
Students are expected to complete their course selection by the February 26th deadline.

Daily Schedule:

Due to the selective withdrawal of services by secondary teachers in the TDSB, the Board has postponed late starts until further notice. Classes on Wednesdays will follow the regular school schedule from 8:50 am to 3:10 pm.


Consistently doing homework helps students develop self-discipline and helps them to learn to organize and manage their time effectively. Homework may consist of work specifically assigned by the teacher to be done for the next day but it should also include reading, planning for future assignments, reviewing for future evaluations and researching/preparing for major projects. Homework might also involve cleaning out knapsacks and school bags and ensuring that all papers are hole punched and in the appropriate binder. It is expected that students in grade 9 do 45 - 90 minutes per day and students in grade 10-12 do 60 to 120 minutes per day. Many subjects in high school such as math are highly cumulative and doing practice questions for homework is crucial for success. Students should be encouraged to do their homework in a visible but quiet place away from the distractions of all of their electronics.

Parents and Students in Grade 11 & 12 – Post-Secondary Information

Our Student Services Department sends out regular texts to let our senior students know about visits from University and College representatives and to make students are aware of important information pertaining to applying to post-secondary education. Parents and students can be added to the list to receive this information by texting @ecigu to 289 276 0832 or by e-mailing ecigu@mail.remind.com Please encourage your child, especially if they are in grade 12, to add themselves to this service.
