FAREWELL REMINDERS

Hello grade 9 families!!

As farewell is quickly approaching I thought I would send some reminders for everyone.

Farewell is this Thursday, June 6th from 6:00pm-9:00pm.  Grade 9's need to be in their class rooms by 5:30-5:45 (at the latest).  Our ceremony in the gym will be 45min to an hour.  After the ceremony students and families will head to the learning commons for snacks and refreshments, then parents/guardians will leave and the students will have the rest of the time for a dance.  

Students need to be picked up promptly at 9:00pm

We look forward to celebrating this evening with everyone!

Sincerely,

Jen Purslow




High School Registration is happening now!!

Both Western Canada and Central Memorial came to the school this week and helped prepare out 9’s for registration.  If your child is designated to another High School (i.e Ernest Manning, or Crescent Heights) I will get a registration form from that High School and get them to the students this week.

Steps to be taken

  1. Fill out the Grade 10 Registration form – name, CBE ID, phone numbers address etc.  Students will fill out their top 5 options (they need to list 5, if they don’t the High Schools will pick for them, with no option of changing it)
  2. Return to school, in the office– to Mrs. Purslow  by Tuesday February 19th.
  3. Teachers will then put the students current mark and the recommendation for the Grade 10 level courses.
  4. Forms get picked up by the High Schools

Students that are trying to transfer High schools must register with their designated high school first.  Then they must go to the designated high school and get a transfer request.  Take the request to the preferred high school to drop it off, and see if you are accepted or not into that school.   Remember just because students want to move high school doesn’t mean they will get to.

Western Canada has 2 more options available that are not on their registration form.

  1. Math 15 – students who would benefit from brushing up on their skills from grade 9 would go to this option first semester, then continue with the streamed math second semester
  2. Learning Strategies – study and organizational skills, help with homework, and concepts they did not understand in their core classes.

I have more option information books for each of the high schools, and if the students have any questions tell them to come and see me. 

Please let me know if you have any questions!!

Students at our school are designated to Western Canada High School or Central Memorial, depending on your home address.  If you live out of this area, you will be designated to other High Schools.


The next step to getting ready for High School is that Central Memorial and Western Canada counsellors and administration teams will be coming to Mount Royal, to give a little informational session where students can ask questions and to hand out registration forms and booklets.  Students will attend the school session that they are designated too.  We will also  allow students to join their non-designated High School for information as to transferring. These sessions are during school time.
