Toronto Catholic District School Board

THIS WEEK AT SVDP

 
Hello parents,
 
Invitation for St. Vincent de Paul Community to tune into Breakfast Television
We are filled with excitement and anticipation at having two team members of the Harlem Globetrotters visit St. Vincent de Paul C.S. this  Wednesday, March 30th.   This event will be televised on Breakfast Television.  St. Vincent de Paul C.S. Jr. and Int. Boys and Girls basketball teams and their coaches  Ms. Rajca and Ms. McInerney will also be present. The Globetrotters will be arriving at 6:10 a.m., and our teams at 6:30 a.m., televising will end at 9:00.  Hopefully the Globetrotters will be able to make a quick appearance in the yard before the bell.  Please note no filming will take place in the yard, since not all children have a signed media release form.
 
Also please be aware that the broadcasting truck although stationary will be in the yard  when students arrive for school in the morning.  A teacher will be posted by the truck, but please take a minute to remind your child/children to remain clear of the truck. 
 
We look forward to this very exciting event.
 
Please return forms by Tuesday, March 29th. See attached.

High School Applications – What’s Next?
During the week of February 8th, 2016, TCDSB Secondary Schools will begin to forward acceptance packages to the elementary schools. They will not all arrive on the same date, so it is important not to panic if your child does not come home with package on February 8th. Once you receive your acceptance package, please read the instructions very carefully and take note of any important dates and forms that need to be submitted.
Most secondary schools require that the classroom teacher or principal sign the course selection sheets. Try to remember that grade 8 teachers are extremely busy and may require time to complete forms for your child. Please be respectful of this and submit your requests early, thereby giving the teachers enough notice.
What if my child did not get into their first choice?
Students who were redirected to an alternate school because they’re choice(s) were oversubscribed, can do one of three things:
  1. Accept the redirection, thereby securing themselves a spot in a secondary school in September.
  2. Accept the redirection but ask to be placed on a Priority 2 waiting list at their original school of choice. This student will have a spot in the redirected school in September and if a spot becomes available in his/her first choice, s/he may be offered that position.
  3. Turn down the redirection and be placed on a Priority 1 waiting list at their original school of choice. If this option is chosen, then your child will not have a spot in any school for the time being. If spots do not become available in their first choice school by the start of the year, then the student will have to register at a school where spots may still be available.
Change Your Mind?
If you no longer want your child to attend the ‘first choice’ school, you may request a change of school using the Change Form. This form becomes available in the beginning of March. Please ask your child’s teacher for a form at that time. Please keep in mind that any requests can only be accepted based on the availability of space in the school.
