Week of Sept 16-20

Hello Parents/Guardians

The Coal forum panel and roundtable: Thank you to all students for your participation, excellent questions and attentiveness during our recent Coal Forum Education Panel. the feedback from the presenters was that they were very impressed with our students: your kids!!!

Courses: This Tuesday (Sept 17) will be the last formal day for students switching courses. After Tuesday, a course transfer form will be needed. These forms are available from the counseling office. The forms must be used after this Tuesday for any class changes and must be signed off by a parent before the change can be made final. Parents, if you have any questions about your child’s program, please reach out to us. Mrs. Peever (dpeever@sd59.bc.ca) and Mr. Smith (msmith@sd59.bc.ca) take care of our graduation program (grades 10/11/12), and Ms. Sieber (esieber@sd59.bc.ca) works with the counseling department for students with Individualized Education Plans (IEP).

Routines: The beginning of the school year brings with it learning and re-learning routines and rules for students. Thank you to students and our parent community for your feedback and support in our new routines around cell phone use during class time. We also thank parents for your support around our school’s three Rs. Respect, Readiness to Learn, and Responsibility.

Have an awesome week ☺
