THE Q BOOK AND SCHOOL RULES
We urge all parents and students to read thoroughly all of the rules and codes in this year’s Q book. Many rules have been amended and new rules have been added. Not knowing what the Q Book says will not be accepted as a defense if rules are broken. There will be no exceptions to the rules, codes and standards outlined in the Q Book.
L.A./ Vegas 2018 Performing Arts Trip
Our school’s Annual Walk-a-thon will be held on Friday, October 27, 2017. Sponsor sheets were sent home today. We encourage your children to get a jumpstart on collecting funds during their Summer break. Let us work together to provide the best educational experience for our children. I look forward to your support.
Some girls are wearing uniforms whose hems are above their knees. Hemlines should always be worn one inch below the knee. We have also had to ask several girls to revert to their natural hair colour and some boys were sent home to rectify their hair length. Hair is to be properly groomed at all times. Makeup is not allowed. Black tennis shoes and Vans are not allowed in school. Only black leather shoes, that may be polished, are to be worn. Please refer to the Q Book for all uniform/hair policies.
CELL PHONES AND OTHER ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT
Cell phones and other electronic equipment are prohibited on campus. This includes iPods, iPhones, iPads, cameras and other electronic gadgets. Any item found or seen anywhere on campus, including down the drive will be confiscated i.e. will not be returned.
DELIVERY OF ITEMS TO STUDENTS
The staff in the High School Office will not be able to deliver money or items (e.g. Lunch Boxes, P.E. Bags, Homework and Home Economics supplies) left in cars or forgotten at home. The constant delivery of these items negatively impacts the office. Parents are asked to ensure that students are organized and that they arrive at school with all that is required.
HIGH SCHOOL TEXTBOOK SALES
Textbooks are presently being sold down the drive at the ‘The Galaxy’. Students and parents are free to purchase exercise books, neckties and P.E. Kits at their convenience.
EXTRA ACCESS CLASSES
Extra Access classes will begin shortly. These classes are held for one hour each afternoon, 3:15 – 4:15 p.m. Students can register for only one class each evening and they are advised to choose a subject in which they experience some challenges. All students on probation have to pursue at least two of these courses.
We will very shortly communicate with parents concerning the date and time for the first Parents’ Meeting. Once our results brochures are printed and ready for distribution, the meeting will be held.
THE HOMEWORK CENTRE
The Homework Centre is open each afternoon between 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. in the High School Library. Peer tutors will be on hand to assist students and, at least one staff member will be present.
GLAT results are available at the Primary Years Office. Parents of Grades 4 and 7 are asked to collect their GLAT results. Parents must sign to indicate that they have received the results. Results WILL NOT be issued to students.
