Welcome to Week 8 (Oct 23-27)

 Reminders for the week



  • Welcome back to Mark Morra.




  • Last day to submit units with test – All students should be reminded in TA and in subject areas of this important date that will be upon us soon – Nov. 2!  Also, before you create a conditional zero for your subject students, please be sure to consult the Special Education Department and/or be aware of your subject student’s IEP.  If you have questions or concerns about a particular student, please consult with Guidance for extenuating circumstance issues. There will be a conditional zero memo coming later this week.

  •  Take Your Kids to Work Day - A reminder to all TA’s to please encourage your Grade 9 advisees to return their forms for TYKTW Day.

 Tips of the Week.jpg


TA Tip(s) of the week


Are your TA's getting involved?


Mary Ward has a wide range of clubs and teams that students can participate in. Involvement in these activities help the students build their support network at this school, thus strengthens our community. This week, try and ask each advisee which clubs/teams they are involved, or plan to be involved, in this year. For the ones that do not plan to participate in activities, try to encourage them to do so. Other students in the TA group can help provide information about particular activities. A list of all of the clubs and teams we offer, and their teacher moderators, will be in your mailboxes soon.


Have a great week, everyone!
