The grade 7 students brought home their registration forms, powerschool passwords, emergency school closure form and media release last Thursday.  We ask that you take a few minutes to review and fill out the forms paying particular attention to addresses, phone numbers and email addresses.  Please remove the powerschool information and keep for your file. Please return all the remaining forms to school tomorrow.

Powerschool passwords have be given to students in grade 8 or 9 this week that do not have working passwords.  If you as a parent would like your passwords please call the school and we will send them home with your student.  Due to privacy laws we can not give out powerschool passwords over the phone.
