Gr. 8 Parent & Student Information Evening

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015 –  7:00 pm 

Gr. 8 students and their parents/guardians are welcome to attend an information night, January 13th.  You will have the opportunity to tour our school and to attend a course selection tutorial.  Please meet in the main gym for a general presentation at 7:00 pm prior to touring the school.

Course Changes for Next Year

Course changes for next year are frozen until after timetables have been created later this spring. If you are interested in a preferential course change (ie changing one elective for another), bring a note from home to give permission and you will be placed on a waitlist, or in the course if possible, once timetables have been created.

However, if you are considering a change in course type (for example college or mixed instead of university, or applied instead of academic), please bring a note from home giving permission as soon as possible. Course type changes may be difficult or impossible to make once timetables have been created. Bringing a note from home as soon as possible is especially important for course type changes in English, math and science.

Course Selection Grades 10 – 12 for 2014/2015

Students who will be in grades 10 – 12 in 2014/2015 will complete course selection online using MyBlueprint by February 12, 2014.

Students who had English (grades 9 – 12) in first semester were seen during their English class, and given instructions as well as a list of courses being offered and a link to the course calendar. If you were absent when this took place, please drop by guidance for your instructions.

Students who have English (grades 9 – 12) in second semester will be seen in their English classes on February 4 or 5, and will be given their instructions at that time. If you are absent from English class then, please drop by guidance for your instructions.

Students who need help with the course selection process or in using MyBlueprint to select courses, are invited to come to Computer Lab 331 at lunch on Monday, February 10 or Tuesday, February 11 for help.

All printed MyBlueprint course selection printed sign-off sheets are due in the guidance office by Wednesday, February 12, 2014.  Sign-off sheets received after that date may result in students being placed on wait lists for some courses.
