March has sprung upon us, and even though we have a two-week break, this month is full of schoolwork. Even though the Arctic Winter Games have been cancelled, a big thank you goes to Scott Kerby for putting many volunteer hours into being part of the AWG organizational team. We understand that the decision to cancel the AWG was made in the best interest of everyone.
We continue to have significant issues with students vaping, using substances, and cyber bullying. I have included a write up in this month’s newsletter to a useful tool for parents to address the issue of cyberbullying.
Even though we still have three months left in this school year, we have already started to prepare for 2020/21. Students have completed course selections with their guidance counselors. If your child has not completed their course selection, please make sure to contact one of our three guidance counselors. The guidance counselors have also visited our feeder elementary schools to have our incoming grade 8 students complete their course selections. Stay tuned for more details about next year in the upcoming newsletters!
To all staff and students who are traveling for the March Break: safe travels, and we hope that you have a relaxing break. For those who are staying in town to enjoy the break locally: enjoy your time in our beautiful territory!
Finally, don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead an hour on the morning of Sunday, March 8th.
