Welcome to Semester 2!!
¬ GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS
Course Change Forms cannot be dropped off without the student seeing a counsellor. Whether you are requesting to add a course or drop a course, and even if your teacher says you can join their class, you still need to see a counsellor. The counsellors are working hard to accommodate drop-in appointments at this busy time, but it is great if you can make an appointment by seeing Mrs. Watson in the Career Centre (Room 217). Thank you!
