Happy New Year!
I trust that you and your family had a restful and relaxing holiday season and I hope that 2018 provides you with many wonderful experiences and successes. The first few months at Vimy Ridge have been fantastic, as both the students and staff have settled in for what promises to be another successful year. Our modernization is now complete and exciting times are on the horizon for Vimy Ridge!
We are nearing the half-way point of the year and our students continue to excel in their academic and individual programs. Diploma exams for our High School students began on January 11th and the Grade 9 PAT exams are scheduled to commence on January 18th, beginning with the Grade 9 Language Arts Part A exam. Please check SchoolZone for the complete exam schedule for all courses. Good luck to all of our students!
A few important dates to remember...
- Our annual Vimy Ski Trip to Panorama leaves Thursday, February 1stand I want to wish all those attending a safe and enjoyable time on the slopes!
- Our next Progress Reports will be released to SchoolZone on February 2nd
- Professional Development Day is scheduled for Friday, February 9th – there will be no classes this day
Vimy Ridge Academy Open House 2018 is set for Thursday, February 8th, beginning at 6:30 pm. Registration for next year will be underway soon, as the months of February and March find us immersed in the student registration process for the 2018-2019 school year.
All students currently attending Vimy Ridge Academy in grades 7 through 11 will receive additional information regarding the registration process, including important dates and deadlines, during the month of February. It is shaping up to be a very busy, but exciting time of year for all of us here at Vimy Ridge!
As we begin to plan for next year, we encourage our school families to begin their planning as well. Please do not hesitate to contact one of our administrators, counselors, or visit SchoolZone or our school website for assistance in program planning, career exploration or post-secondary information.
In addition to this we will be holding a High School Orientation and Information Evening for Parents on Tuesday, February 6th, at 6:00 pm in Ortona Hall (small gym) and I encourage all parents of grade nine students to attend.
Our next School Council meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, January 17th @ 6:30pm in the General Office Boardroom.
I am looking forward to a great finish to the first semester and as always, I welcome and encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s educational experience at Vimy Ridge Academy.
All the best in 2018!
