After Gr. 8 night (Oct. 12, 6:30p) and Remind

Grade 8 students received a flyer today about the After Gr. 8 info night and Remind.

After Grade 8 night

Students and parents/guardians are encouraged to attend the After 8 night together, to learn more about transitions to High School, Optional Attendance, Specialized Programs, Credits and Course Types, and more.

Thursday, October 12, 2017
6:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the SAJH Cafetorium

In case you are unable to attend, I will post slides from my presentation afterwards.

REMIND messaging

Remind is the way that I send information and notices out to students and their families; info can be received over text message, app notifications, or email. It allows me to send more detailed information directly to the people who need it most! Personal information is all kept private. Please see the handout that your child has, or review the attached documents.

Please note that app use requires data or wifi connection, and standard rates apply for text messaging.
