Semester two started off with us hitting the ground reading…. I mean hitting the books running… Well, something like that. Courses are already two weeks into this half of the year and a busy semester again is before us. Parents of senior students – take some time to ask your student if they know how many credits they currently have completed? Do they know which math pathways they should be taking this semester and the next year or two if they have that time left in their high school education? If they plan on pursuing post-secondary education at the trades or university level, have they spent some time looking at what classes they should have completed by then and have they started the application process for further education? For example, the end of this week is the application deadline for a couple colleges. I ask you these questions so that you can keep involved and help your high school student be prepared for their further education.
We continue to have turbulent weather this winter and February has been no different, taking a toll on our highways and their conditions. Take it easy on the roads as you travel and remind our young drivers about the same.
Elementary report cards will be going out March 7th, and next month, the second set of interviews this year will take place on March 19th and 20th. The day in lieu of those TriConferences will be on March 18th, so that means no classes for students. The report cards for the Grade 6-12 students will follow the interviews in the next month, April.
The school year calendar for next year has been an item in the news as the Ministry of Education in Saskatchewan is creating some stricter guidelines for school divisions to follow. We will email our new calendar home to you as soon as we know anything further.
That’s all for now. As always, Mr. Anderson and I would love to talk to you if you have time to drop by the office or give us a call.
Talk to you soon.
