McRoberts 8-11 Program Planning 2021

2021 Program Planning Instructions For Students Presently in Grades 8-11

 

Under normal circumstances (Pre- Covid 19 restrictions) the Counselling Department would be meeting with grade groups and reviewing course selection information for the next school year with you. However, given present restrictions we are unable to present information in that format. Instead we have prepared specific online grade presentations to provide you with information that will help guide you through the course planning process. 

 

On Wednesday February 10th at 6pm for students and families of students in grades 8 and 9, and 7pm for students and families of students in grades 10 and 11, we will be hosting the Program Planning Information Night (Questions and Answers).  Our hope during this event is to provide answers to any questions that you may have regarding this process.

Here is the link for this meeting:
