 Announcement 02

Term 2 Report Card Parent Communication MS/HS 

If you have any specific inquiries about their exams or second-term grades, please reach out directly to their respective teacher.

Our primary goal is for every student to thrive and reach their fullest potential. However, if your child did not pass the final exam or term, there are options available for credit recovery (see below for protocol). Students in grades 7-12 who faced challenges in the final exam or term grades will have an opportunity for recovery from March 25-28. The schedule will be communicated in advance with students and families. In the meantime, your child should attend support sessions with his or her teacher every Monday from 2:00-2:30.

We extend our best wishes for your child's success in the second trimester!
