Update for 2017-2018
As of Aug. 23 17

1. Staffing- Richview was allocated 51.5 staff members, one less than last year. It is expect that this will not be sufficient, a request for additional staff is pending and  will result in the re-alignment of classes in late October.

2. Nutrition Program- Running for several days/wk or daily since September 2016 continues for the 17 18 school year.

6. Painting- Hallways, doors and lockers have been painted over the summer with the exception of the English/Library corridor, expected within the month.

7. Windows- We are scheduled to have several banks of windows replaced in the fall.

9. Brick Work- at various sites around the building, predominantly around the auditorium.


Summatives and Exams
We have entered the "summative season," that is the 8 weeks before the end of classes when a portion up to 30% of the total mark can be demonstrated. Like exams, these culminating activities are legally required and cannot be re-scheduled outside of school-sanctioned activities or by medical/legal notes. 

With the exception of Languages and the Arts, no courses shall require students to complete both a "summative" and an exam.
The exam period runs from June 9-22, schools cannot accommodate exams missed due to vacations. An exam schedule will be available later in the coming weeks.

Congratulations- Ontario Curling Association Provincial Champions!
Matt, Brandon, Russell and Sean of Team Garner saw the lads go from High Park to Leaside to the Land O' Lakes Curling Club in Tweed, Ontario. 

The team went 8 and 1 in the tourney and the most impressive win took place in the semi-finals in the 7th end with the game tied and Matt threw a control weight hit through a very small port to hit and stick a score- the only 2 of the game. This is the first time in the 77 years of the event that our school has won. On another matter, it is the first time in Ms. Haden-Reeves' 22 year coaching career that one of her teams has won a provincial championship. Our gratitude and congratulations are extended to our brilliant Coach!
