Don’t forget to book time between appointments for travel time

Representatives from Learning Clicks will be on site for Career Counselling.
Lifetouch will also be here taking family portraits, this is great for Christmas pictures.  Book your time at:403-255-5440

Our bookkeeper, Edwina Ewart will be available on the evening of the 24TH and the morning of the 26 for those wanting to pay their child’s student fees.  Debit, visa, and MasterCard are also available.

We have the opportunity to try Conference Manager , an online booking system, for our upcoming parent student teacher conferences that are scheduled for Wednesday October 24, 5:30-8:00PM. Thursday October 25, 2012 from 5:30-8:00PM and Friday Oct, 2012ober 26 from 9:00 AM – Noon. 

The site opens for booking at 6:00AM on Monday Oct 22, 2012. Each time slot is 5 minutes.  If you would like a ten minute interview, please select two consecutive sessions.  You may add any comments to let the teacher know if you have a particular concern you would like to talk about. Be sure to put travel time between interviews.

We hope that this will allow our teachers to be prepared for your interviews and make the time more productive for everyone.  Please call our office at 403-777-6430 if you have any concerns.
