It is hard to believe that we are in the home stretch of 2019/20. Back at the start of the year, none of us would have imagined that we would be finishing the year in the manner that we have. Despite the upheaval since March Break around the world, when I look back on this year, I reflect on the many positive things that happened at our school: the well-attended Welcome Feast, the awesome Jamie Shaw Memorial Tournament, and the successful Culture Week are some of the events that highlight this year. These are in addition to the many day-to-day successes of students and staff in 2019/20.
June 12th is the last official day of school. In the last week of school, I encourage all students to engage in our Wellness Challenges, which are posted on the school’s website. Here is the link to the first challenge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IctkFOYL9E4. We encourage all to participate to stay healthy, and have the chance at winning some cool prizes.
Report cards will go out in the mail after June 12th. Students’ timetables for 2020/21 will be sent out at the same time as report cards. As of this newsletter, I do not have information to share on what the startup of 2020/21 will look like. When I receive this information, I will be sure to pass it on to the FH Community through email. The first day of school for students is Wednesday, August 19th. In preparation of some learning gaps, we have built more support periods in next year’s schedule to provide students with greater opportunities to catch up on any outcomes that may have been missed in this last half of semester 2. There is also information on Summer School in this newsletter.
If you have not already done so, please be sure to apply for the Yukon Government student subsidy. Please visit https://sportyukon.com/events-page/news/ to fill out your application. In addition to this funding, I have attached a sheet to the email in which this newsletter was sent out which lists some of the financial supports that are available to those who qualify.
