Welcome Back and Happy New Year!
We hope all our McNair families enjoyed a relaxing and fun-filled Winter Holiday season, and that our students are now well-rested and ready to return to school and finish the semester.
Semester One will run until Friday, January 25th, and Semester Two will begin on Wednesday, January 30th. There will be lots to do as the semester finishes, so please be sure to stay organized and finish strong!
A few reminders are important for our students and their families:
- Grade 11 Students will all be asked to write the Grad Numeracy Assessment on January 23rd or 24th. They will need to see a posted schedule for which day, time and computer lab they are scheduled to write in. We will give them a couple of practice assessments next week.
- Grade 12 students will be scheduled to conduct their Grad Transitions Interviews on January 21-25. They will also need to see a posted schedule for which day, time and with which staff member they are scheduled to conduct the interviews. They will also be given some information for how to prepare and practice for these 5 minute interviews next week.
- Students enrolled in English 12 and Communications 12 classes will have Provincial exams in the Small gym at 9:00 AM on January 24th and 25th, respectively.
- Students enrolled in Math 10, 11 and 12 this semester will be asked to write their Final Exam in the Small gym at 9:00 AM on Tuesday, January 29th.
There is lots to keep our students busy during the next few weeks, so please be sure to help them stay organized and healthy.
We want to wish you all a Happy New Year and look forward to making 2019 another great year at Matthew McNair Secondary School.
