October 6, 2017

This week was a great start to the second six weeks .  Our #1 focus is always student academic success.  The past two weeks in particular, after-school tutorials were a packed house as students were studying and re-doing exam grades trying to squeak by for the six weeks.  Please remind your student that high performers attend teacher tutorials even if they are not in danger of failing.  The second six weeks is a fast six weeks it is actually only five weeks long.

Students received report cards in their 3rd period class today. Monday is a student holiday/staff professional development day; Temple College students will have class in the morning.
