Course Fair / Meet the Teacher
Tuesday Feb 9th
On Tuesday February 9th we will be hosting a combined "Meet the Teacher" night and Course Fair. This is your opportunity to met your son or daughter's Semester 2 teachers, as well as to learn about what courses will be offered next year. Our format will be an "open house" style in the Gym and Cafeteria, where parents can circulate to the various tables/displays to learn about course offerings and touch base with teachers. We look forward to seeing you there!
Course selection requests for the 2016-17 school year will be due to the Guidance Department by February 22. Students will receive information about how to complete the online course request at a special assembly on Wednesday. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in helping their student(s) make their requests.
