A reminder that it is ‘collaboration day’ this Friday.  Staff are in session beginning at 8:10 but classes don’t start for students until 9:50 a.m.   The school is open to students at its usual time if they wish to come in early.  M. Keenan

Principal’s Update–Sunday September 28 (Student Timetables/Collaboration Day)

September 28, 2014


Hello Parents and Students:  Please allow Ms. Fuhrmann and myself to express our thanks for your patience and understanding during a rather unique return to school this past week.  Our opening day assemblies went according to plan yet I must admit our office staff was buried in lineups as students rushed to pay fees prior to start up. Some revisions for next year are necessary.  In the meantime,   I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE parents who have not yet registered on the district ‘portal’ to do so as soon as possible as future payments (ie field trips etc.) will be required via this portal site.  It will also allow you to receive regular email updates from the school.


STUDENT TIMETABLE ISSUES:   Our three counselor/advisors:  Ms. Umlah, Mr. Kater and Ms . Griffin has been working non-stop in order to get 2 weeks worth of missed student timetable revisions done asap.  The last day for course change requests was this past Friday but we ask that you remain patient as they are dealing with numerous submissions.  I have been receiving a number of email requests from anxious parents over the past week regarding their son’s/daughter’s timetable.  While I  appreciate your concerns, I ask that you please give us a few more days as we still have some catching up to do.


COLLABORATION DAY THIS FRIDAY:  I realize it seems awfully quick, but we do have our first regularly scheduled collaboration day for teachers this Friday.  For students, this means a late start to school (9:50).  That said , students are more than welcome to come to school as usual and spend their time getting started on assignments etc.  Supervision will be provided in our learning commons (library) and the multi-purpose area will also be open for student use.


Again…thanks for your support, and welcome back.
