As we have just passed the mid-term point of the first semester, we want to remind families to ensure you have access to the MyEd Family portal to review your daughter’s or son’s attendance and report card. In addition, we will be completing student course selection for grades 9 to 11 students for the 2020/21 school year early in the second semester.
A reminder that we host our Student/Parent/Teacher conferences on November 21 from 2 to 4pm and 5 to 7pm. We will have an early dismissal on that day at 11:55am. The bell schedule for the day is as follows:

The Junior Girls (10s) volleyball team season just wrapped up. They had a strong start to the season at the VIU tournament, finished well in the league standings and finished seventh in cities. They played in our senior tournament, taking most teams to three sets and won two of their matches!
Grade 9 Girls Volleyball
The grade nine girls volleyball team has had a very successful season and all of the girls have improved greatly! They are headed to the second round of playoffs on Tuesday November 12th at PCS. They came first in their pool for the first round and are very hopeful to do well today! No matter what they will be playing for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th. On November 22-23 the girls are headed to Vancouver for grade nine girls provincials – it will be a great learning experience for the girls so please wish them luck!!

Take Your Kid to Work Day
We would like to thank all parents/guardians and members of the community for taking our Grade 9’s to work with them on Wednesday November 6th! We would like to give a special thank you to the local Langford RCMP detachment for giving 10 of our students a great experience that day! It was a true community effort that helped to provide our Grade 9’s with the wonderful experience of exploring the world of work. Thank you to everyone for creating this opportunity for our students.
A reminder to families and students of grade 12 students that you can find information about grad events, timelines, and info through our web page found under the Student & Parent tab under Grade 12 Information.
