Weekly Message May 8

Good day to all on this cool spring day – I think we’re all looking forward to the greener and warmer days that will surely follow. While you’re out enjoying the improving weather over the next few weeks, please continue to follow the lead of our health care professionals: keep your distance and be careful with yourself and those around you. The more we all do our part, the sooner we’ll be able to get back together in our own building. The hard work and support of everyone – students, teachers, and staff – as we move towards the end of this very different school year continues to be very much appreciated.

Notes for this week:

  • Honour Role certificates have been sent out. If you think you should have been eligible and haven’t received one, please contact us at the school. As a reminder, the criteria for the Honour Role is an 80% overall average, and the criteria for Honours with Distinction is a 90% average.
  • Students who have applied for Returning Grade 12 status will be notified in the near future.
  • A reminder: teachers will be posting marks in PowerSchool – marks will be gathered to provide a cumulative average. Your marks may fluctuate but please note that your June final mark cannot go below the March 13thmarks that students have already received.

One last thing this week: along with our Churchill grads, students all around the world will be graduating in the next few weeks. Former President Barack Obama will deliver an hour-long televised prime-time commencement address for the Class of 2020 on Saturday, May 16 – I suggest that you might want to listen in.

Have a good weekend, and be safe.

A. Rajan, Principal
