Option Sheets and Upcoming Events

Last Chance!

Now that second semester is well underway, we would like to invite all students and parents to review their course requests for the 2015-2016 school year. To do this, log in to your account in Career Cruising and look at the Course Planner. 

If students  would like to make changes to their course requests for next year, they should book an appointment with their guidance counsellor before April 2nd. 

After this time, we will not be able to make changes until the timetabling is completed. As always, we will do our best to accommodate changes in late spring or early fall, but we cannot guarantee that desired changes will be possible at that point.

Registration for summer school (make up and reach ahead) will begin on May 1. Students will register with their guidance counsellor. A list of courses is available on the OCDSB website.

Other Important Upcoming Dates/Events:
Parent-Teacher Interviews (by appointment): Tuesday March 31
MHS Multicultural/Talent Show: Thurs April 16 and Fri April 17
Term 3 Report Cards: Friday April 24

Tell Them From Me Survey

Information for Parents

Begining next week, MHS students will be participating in the annual "Tell Them From Me" survey. TTFM is an online survey tool that the district uses to collect anonymous and reliable data about school climate, bullying, school safety and student engagement. The TTFM survey was first implemented during the 2012-13 school year for students, and repeated again during the 2013-14 school year for students and parents.  TTFM is used by schools to give students a voice - students are able to share their ideas, thoughts or concerns about their school. Student input will help make their school safe and more welcoming.
