December 6th, 2021 Update
Dear Parents & Guardians,
We have a few updates to share with you on this winter Monday.
Return of Semester System
We have received confirmation from the school Board (OCSB) that high school students will return to a semester system for the second half of the school year. Beginning Monday, February 7th students will follow a 4-period per day schedule. We are continuing to consult with the Board and Ottawa Public Health regarding the impacts on our daily structure (lunch, breaks, etc.).
We will continue to follow the quadmester model for the five week period that follows the Christmas break. Updates will be shared as they become available.
Christmas Comfort & Joy Campaign Update
We are just past the halfway point of our Comfort & Joy campaign. Thank you to those who have already contritibed. Families interested and able to participate can still contribute until December 10th.
Throughout the campaign our Chaplain, Mr. Guitard, has been sharing anonymous stories of families in need in our community during morning announcements. Our goal is to be able to support at least 30 families. There are three ways to give. Donations can be made through School Cash Online. Gift cards are also being collected in homeroom classes. Finally, we have a donation bin available in the atrium in which non-perishable food items can be dropped off. Donations will be directed to the Stittsville and Richmond Food Banks.
High School Midterm Marks and Parent-Teacher Interviews
High School midterm marks will be shared by email on Friday, December 10th. Marks are being released just prior to the midpoint of the quadmester to facilitate hosting parent-teacher interviews prior to the Christmas break. The window for booking quadmester 2 parent-teacher interviews will open the same day - additional information regarding booking will be shared later in the week. High school parent-teacher interviews wil take place on Wednesday, December 15th, 2021.
