I hope your summer is going wonderfully and that you are enjoying the clear blue skies!
I am writing to re-extend the invitation to join us for Grade 8 Orientation on Wednesday, August 31st. Our original plan was to hold orientation on September 1st but there has been a shift in the district calendar and SHSS staff will be on site on the 31sr instead of the 1st.
Our orientation open house gives students the opportunity to pick up their timetable, find their locker and map out their classes. Staff will be on hand to help. This is an informal drop in event that runs from 2:30 to 4:00 pm. Parents are welcome but students can also come by with their friends and start to navigate their new school independently.
Students who can not attend on the 31st can stop by on Friday, September 2nd to pick up their timetable any time between 9:00 and 2:00. Office staff will be on site to assist.
All students will go through an orientation with their teacher on the first day of school,Tuesday, September 6th so please do not worry if the above dates do not fit into your schedulte!
I will be in touch again as we get closer to start up.
Enjoy a lovely month of Auguse!
