School Picture Day!

School photos will take place on Thursday September 20th. Picture order forms were sent home with students during the first week of school.

We would also like to invite all parents/guardians and students to our Fall Open House on Wednesday September 19th from 6:00-7:00 pm.  Our first PAC meetings will follow the open house.

Friday September 21st and Monday September 24th are Non-Instructional Days. 

Course Change Requests & Student Schedules

Course change request forms will be available in TAG on Monday September 10th. Students will need to complete the request form and have it signed by a parent/guardian. Every effort is made to enrol students in electives of their choice. However, some students may not be enrolled in a course due to timetable restrictions and class size limits. Certain elective choices such as Musical Theatre, Band, and Hockey Academy limit the number of available options. Course change requests will be processed in the order in which they are received but this does not mean that all change requests can be made.

Please Note: Student schedules in the MyEducationBC Family Portal are not finalized. Our team is working to balance classes and schedules are still subject to change.
