Ward Weekly Update


For the week of Monday February 26 – Friday March 2, 2018


Hello Parents & Guardians.  Below, please find our Mary Ward Weekly Update.  This was also sent out electronically by School Connects.


Reminder: We have completed our main course selection days last week for the 2018-19 school year.  If your child has not yet handed in their signed course selection form along with their activity fee of $90.00, Teacher Advisors will continue to collect until Wednesday March 28th.  After that point, students must bring their forms and money to the Main Office.  Please see our ‘For Parents’ tab on our Portal page regarding the Board letter/policy for Activity fees. 

Academic Alert process:  Between the dates of Mon. Feb. 19 – Friday March 2nd during this time period, please look for either an electronic TA form sent if your child has received any Academic Alerts or, check the mail if you do not use electronic communication.

This week our students celebrate Spirit Week.  SAC has tweeted out the schedule.  Ask your children.  I have included the activity each day.

Grade 9 Health & Physical Education students will be participating in the ROPES course all week.  Please be sure they don’t miss out.
