Guidance Newsletter Semester 2 2023

GUIDANCE NEWS 2023, Semester 2: 

The Northview Guidance Department values and appreciates the importance of the student and parent/guardian voice.  Our goal and vision is in alignment with the TDSB's Vision for Learning which centers around our commitment to equity, achievement and the well-being of our students.  We are committed to serving our students and providing a safe environment where all voices are respected and heard.

Northview Guidance has a variety of resources available for time management and study strategies to help prepare for final course projects/ culminating activities and our goal is  to give our students the necessary tools to make informed decisions for success in secondary school.  Guidance counsellors are always available to assist students. 

Student Services has completed a busy and productive first semester.Second semester begins with course selection for students.

February was course selection month. Northview students completed their course selection online through myBlueprint.This leading edge technology saves our school  resources and also provides the opportunity for immediate parent/guardian engagement to support their child’s career pathway.  As a parent/guardian, you can visit By selecting Northview Heights Secondary School from the drop-down menu on the left and following the instructions for parents you can view your child’s myBlueprint account.

We would like to thank everyone for submitting their course selection on time and for reaching out to their guidance counsellor when they had questions or needed clarification.  We see that much care and thought has gone into selecting  courses to ensure best choices were being made.

Our graduating students who have applied to post-secondary programs should continue to check their application/academic information on the OUAC and OCAS websites. Students are encouraged to see their guidance counsellor if they have any questions.

The Guidance Department wishes everyone a successful Semester 2!

Guidance Google Classrooms:

The Northview Guidance Department understands the key role communication plays in ensuring the success of our students.  In an effort to maximize important communications, we have created four individual guidance google classrooms (grades 9, 10, 11 and 12)  for all of our Northview students and ask each student to join according to their current grade level.  The This method of communication has proven to be very successful in ensuring that students are receiving immediate communications by our department.   The Northview Guidance Department has posted, and will continue to post, important messaging throughout this school year. We are requesting all students to join.  The Guidance Google Classroom codes are posted outside of the guidance office (across room 103).  We encourage parents/Guardians to view the Guidance Google Classrooms with their student.
