High School Transition

We look forward to our secondary school partners Woodbridge College and Emily Carr S.S joining us on Wednesday January 16, 2013 to talk to our grade 8 students about their transitions to high school. We will begin to explore course selection which will take place through Career Cruising in the coming weeks. Students will also hear from our secondary school partners about the respective schools (determined by your home address). This week begins the very important process of course selection for our grade 8s who begin grade 9 next September.

If you have a child in grade 8 be sure to talk to them this week about what s/he learned through the sessions. As well, please talk with your child about their initial thoughts around the courses s/he will select for high school. We look forward to working with you on helping all our students select the courses they will be most successful in at high school.

A reminder too that the Information evenings for students and families are as follows:

– Woodbridge College – Thursday January 17, 2013 at 7 p.m.

– Emily Carr S.S – Tuesday January 22, 2013 at 7 p.m.

Please let us know if you ever have any questions.
