Newsletter – June 24, 2022
Congratulations to all our graduates! We were thankful to be able to celebrate your accomplishments in-person. You should be immensely proud of yourselves, your ability to pivot and persevere, and your commitment to strive for better during these challenging and unique years. Please stay connected as we love to get updates from our alumni!
Looking for resources? Don’t forget to review our Student Services Schoology Page. Under our “Resources” section, you will find file folders that contain resources that are grade-specific and a list of other documents or resources that apply to all age groups. Keep an eye out for posts about upcoming events and opportunities. We remind our Grade 11 students to take some time over the summer to complete the MyBlueprint activity, which also includes some links to post-secondary sites. Happy exploring!
Any changes to your health? Please remember to keep us updated before your return to campus in September. If you have an EpiPen or Allerject Injector, remember to bring an updated one when you return from the summer if you have retrieved yours from the Main Office storage.
