Tips of the Week.jpg


TA Tip(s) of the week







As we continue with super TA interviews, please remember to attach a note informing parents of our second round of parent-teacher interviews on April 23rd.



Communicate, communicate, and communicate! Please ensure that those Grade 12’s whose graduation is questionable that you have fully communicated that to parents/guardians/custodians.​






Have a great week, everyone!​
