Early Warning Reports
Early warning reports will be mailed home for some of our students today. If you receive one or more reports it is an indication that one of more of your child’s teachers has concerns about their attendance, behaviour and/or academic performance.
If you receive an early warning report, please review it with your child and if you have any questions or require further clarification about the report please contact the school.
Late Start: Extra help/ Catch-up Wednesdays
We had a good turnout for our first Extra Help/Catch Up time. Please let your child know that it is a drop-in format. Students don’t have to attend for the full hour and they do not have to arrive right at the start. If they have just a question or two they may choose to come part way through the hour and students may visit more than one teacher during that time. Also note that coaches have been instructed that there should not be any team practices during that time to ensure that our student athletes get a chance to catch up on work they may have missed while out at sporting events.
This Wednesday, October 19th is the next extra help late start. Teachers are available from 8:50 a.m. to 9:40 a.m.
The Ontario College Information Fair
The Ontario College Information Fair is taking place this Monday and Tuesday at the Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place on Monday, October 17th from 5 pm – 9 pm and on Tuesday, October 18th from 10 am – 3 pm.
The Fair gives students an opportunity to meet reps from all Ontario Colleges and to learn about careers and related college programs. For more information go to http://www.ocif.ca/.
As part of the Career/Life Planning curriculum all students are encouraged to use the my Blueprint website to help students to identify their interests and strengths, to explore and plan education and career opportunities and to organize which courses they need to take to achieve their career goals. Ms. Anderson has been hosting the Grade 9 classes in the library to help them set up their myBlueprint accounts. Students can see their guidance counsellor for help with myBlueprint.
