Activity Day: backup link to get to the form

I’m hearing from a number of students that they are having trouble accessing the form. The link is also on the school Documents folder. Students can get the link by following these steps:

  1. Go to aw.tdsb.on.ca and login with your student number and password.
  2. Make sure you are on the St Andrew’s Junior High School AW site.
  3. Click on “Documents” in left menu (if it goes to your normal google docs, repeat steps 2-3).

4. Next to “Google Drive,” click on “Student”

5. You can find the link in the “2018 Activity Day signup link” document.

6. Complete the form.

Activity Day update: new start time

Due to today’s modified lunch schedule and the fact that library computers will not be available during lunch, online signup for Activity Day will open today at 4pm, instead of 12 noon as previously announced.

Please remember that selections are due by Friday December 15 at 3:11pm. Access will no longer be available after that time.

Activity Days: new start time for form

Due to some students not receiving a complete copy of the booklet at the end of the day, the sign-up form for Activity Days will open tomorrow (Dec. 12) at NOON.

Students will receive the link to the form via their school (TDSB) email account.

Activity Days: booklet

The booklet for the 2018 Activity Days went home today with students. As some students may have been absent or may have received a copy that was missing pages, we are providing a PDF copy: 2018 Activity Day booklet.

Take Our Kids to Work – forms home Oct.5; due Oct.13

The grade 9s received the forms for Take Our Kids To Work on Thursday near the end of period 7. If your child needs a form, please have them pick one up from the Guidance office next week. Forms are due back to Ms. Wong by Friday, October 13th.

Take Our Kids to Work is an experiential learning opportunity where grade 9 students get to see a work day first-hand. Students across all of Ontario and in many provinces and territories participate in this program. All of the grade 9s at St. Andrew’s are required to participate, whether they are attending work with a parent/guardian, family member or family friend, along with a classmate at another workplace, or with a community host.

Ms. Wong is in the process of arranging a community opportunity with local businesses. Spaces are extremely limited. If your child cannot attend your workplace for safety reasons, please try with classmates or family friends first. Students who cannot find a work site to visit must speak to Ms. Wong BEFORE OCTOBER 13th.
