Winter Break Arriving Shortlyl

December has come and with it the cold temperatures of an Alberta winter. With the winter break arriving shortly and a new year to follow, December tends to be a month of reflection and anticipation. Success in school for students is supported by a similar cycle of understanding where we are currently and using this understanding to plan next steps. Although there are a limited number of class days remaining in the first semester, it is important that students remain diligent in their studies. Completing work, organizing and preparing for semester exams are all very helpful for promoting the very best outcomes. If students can find sometime over break for these activities, they will find the deadlines of semester end much less stressful. A reminder to students and families that the exam timetable attached to this newsletter has significant tutorial time. These tutorial sessions are mandatory for students that have not completed all work to the best of their ability as evaluated by the student and teacher. Students and families will know if a young person does not need to attend these days as the students mentor will con-nect with you and indicate this. Without this contact, all students should be attending these tutorial days.

Contained in this newsletter is the date of our next Parent Association/ School Council Meeting. We have a very active group of parents on the as-sociation/council. They are looking for your input as to how we can continue to support the school community of Alternative High. Please consider attending our next Parent Association/School Council Meeting. The Parent Association/School Council plans to send a form home with your student in the near future. This form will allow them to connect with the parent group directly to share information.

I hope that families are able to have some relaxing time together over the holidays. My wish for students is to have fun during their time away from school and that their choices always reflect the importance of their own safety and the safety of others. We have a few events in December that will have students and their families coming into the school. I hope to see many of you at these events. If by chance I do not, I wanted to extend my appreci-ation for your support of our school program, and wish you and your family the best of fortune into the New Year.

Dr. Don Barbor
