Guidance update

Presentation from Thursday’s After 8/9 night

If you weren’t able to attend the info night yesterday, or would like to review information, click Choices for 9 (PPS) to view the slides.

Early next week, I will post a summary document that lists key websites and resources – this may be more accessible for those who are viewing information on mobile devices.

Secondary Info Nights

Grade 8 and 9 students received a list of all of the Info Nights that will run across the TDSB. Families are encouraged to attend info sessions for potential schools, as they are one of the best ways to get to know the features and offerings of the various schools in the board. This list is available online at Open Houses and Information Nights list. (In the dropdown list, select “Specialized Programs(All)” to view all secondary schools within the TDSB.)

Please note that sometimes these dates do change! Verify when sessions are running by checking the online list. If we are notified of any changes, I will share them via blog/Remind.

If your child was absent during period 7, they can pick up a copy of the Info Nights list from Guidance.

Take Our Kids to Work – Nov. 2/2016

Grade 9 students will do a workplace visit on Wednesday, November 2nd; students received forms and information on October 4. Please follow up with your child to see that they have the forms, and discuss with them where they will visit – either with a parent/guardian, family member, or a friend’s parent/guardian.

If no sites are available for your child, a limited number of places are available to do a workplace visit with me – we will visit and learn about local businesses.
