Christina Powers, Secondary School Principal

Dear Parents, 

After a very unusual spring, with lots of adjustments and learning new ways to connect, our school year is quickly coming to an end.  To conclude the year on a positive note, we have the following celebrations planned for next week.  In addition to these celebrations, our academic project will be culminating on Tuesday.   I would like to extend my deepest gratitude for your support throughout this particular time. The feedback and support from our community have been much appreciated. It has been through your feedback that we have successfully maneuvered virtual learning and, as a result, have begun to think of new and exciting ways to move forward. 

A few things of note as we wrap up the school year: 

  • Please return musical instruments, textbooks, or other items to the ISY campus at your convenience.  These items can be left on the front steps.
  • Yearbooks are available at ISY for pick up.
  • Report cards will be available on PowerSchool on June 9, 2020. Please remember that since this is a culminating report for students in grades 6-10, there will not be teacher comments on this report card.  Students in grade 11 will have comments on their report cards as the  IB is a two-year program.

Please do not hesitate to contact the secondary office at if you have any questions or concerns. We are available to help you.
