Information Evening for Parents of Graduating Students
Thursday, November 1st
Student Services is pleased to host the popular annual event. This evening is designed to help parents negotiate the sometimes confusing process of post-secondary planning and application. A sample of topics for the evening includes:
- Research tools for life after high school
- on-line applications to colleges and universities
- funding post-secondary education
We’re hoping to be as practical as possible at this event; we’ll get some hands-on experience with applications and we’ll talk a bit about next steps. This event is primarily designed for parents of this year’s graduates; we’ll be inviting grade 11 parents to a broader, “big-sky” planning conversation in the spring. Parents of grade 12s – Please check your inboxes in the coming weeks for a special email invitation!
Take A Kid to Work Day
Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018
Grade nine students are encouraged to spend the day “shadowing” their parents (or relatives or family friends) at their places of employment. This has been an amazing day for our grade nine students in past years, helping them to go “deeper in and further out.”
Grade nine classes will be cancelled for that day so that students can make the most of this opportunity.
Next Friday, your son or daughter will bring home a consent form for participation in the day; please fill out the consent form (also available as a link on the EDSBY Student Services group) and return it to the main office.
If you would like more information, please check out the Learning Partnership website.
Looking for a little support with your homework? Drop by the Grove after school Mondays through Thursdays until 4.
