Friday Update - November 26th

Good Afternoon,


Reports will go out with Points of Progress for Ms. Kathleen’s class, along with the grade 10s in Brodie’s Class, this afternoon. Remaining report cards will be uploaded in the coming weeks. You will receive communication from your child’s teacher advising of the date that their report card will be available online. Once your child’s report cards are available on the MyEd family portal, you will receive an email with information on how to log on and retrieve the report cards. Please find attached a letter from the School Board Office that outlines the reporting process this year. If you have any questions regarding report cards, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.

Congratulations and well done to all the students and staff at our school.  You are engaging courageously in your work of learning here at St’a7mes school.  Keep up that good work.
