It has been another busy week in the secondary school. As we are now approaching the fourth week of school students are beginning to have projects completed and summative assessments. Please note, that teachers will begin to reach out to parents if they are concerned with a student’s engagement, task completion, and/or assessment results.  If you are concerned with your child’s progress, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher for guidance.
