Just a reminder to all members of the McNair community...
Semester One ends on Friday, January 26th. We will have Provincial Exams on Thursday, January 25th (English 12 at 9:00 AM in the Small Gym), and Friday, January 26th (Communications 12 at 9:00 AM).
Semester Two will start on Wednesday, January 31st. Students will be given their Semester Two Timetables on Wednesday, January 24th. Monday, January 29th and Tuesday, January 30th will be Non-Instructional Days as we prepare for the start of Semester Two.
We also want to advise all community members that we are having our annual Open House/Program Planning evening, in combination with our Semester Two Meet the Teacher night on Thursday, January 25th. Grade 7 Parents are invited to come and learn valuable information about what McNair can offer their child from 6:00-7:00 PM in the Theatre. From 7:00-8:00 PM, teachers and students will be in various locations around the school in our Open House, showcasing many of the fantastic things our students learn and create while at McNair. This part of the evening is also a time to see your child's new teachers for second semester. From 8:00-9:00, Grade 8-11 parents are invited to attend a workshop with Counsellors about Program Planning for the 2018-19 school year. There will also be an opportunity for prospective Grade 7 parents interested in learning about the Mini-School program to attend an information session from 8:00-9:00 PM.
This has become a great McNair tradition and we are very excited to show off many of the things we do so well. We hope to see many parents and students at our great school from 6:00-9:00 PM on Thursday, January 25th. See the attachment below for more details about McNair's Open House.
Lastly, this is a reminder to parents that on Thursday, February 8th, McNair will be introducing Flex Time, which will serve as a weekly opportunity for students to connect with teachers they need to see for extra help and catch up work. Attached is a brochure that has been shared before that explains the motivation and expectations around Flex Time. If you have any questions, please contact the school.
We look forward to seeing many of you on Thursday, January 25th.
