 Welcome to Week 16 (Dec 18-22)


We are almost there!  We have a fun filled week ahead of us full of TA activities, Christmas celebrations and of course, the annual Christmas Assembly!!


Reminders for the week:


  • A reminder that students should pick up their extra units (The Unit they are currently working on plus 1 more) for the holidays well before Friday.  As per past practice, we will permit students to hand in 2 units per course from Monday January 8th, 2018 to Friday January 12th, 2018.  After that time, we are back to the 1 unit per course per week policy.
  • Cafeteria Service will end on Wednesday. Please ensure your TAs are aware and plan accordingly.
  • If you are leaving the school for your TA Christmas activity, please ensure Angela is aware of any students who are NOT attending, and advise her of any no-shows.  In saying this, we ask that you please provide the Excursion list for your TA outings to Angela by no later the Wednesday @ 12:00 p.m.
