Next year Complementary Subject Selection for grade 7 & 8 Students

The start of our semester has had a fine kick off with MidSun hosting basketball games all week. On Thursday, Mount Royal University Cougars played off against our MidSun Laker Senior teams in a Harlem Globetrotter style game and raised money for The Children's Hospital.  It marked the 9th year of this annual event and many of our students enjoyed cheering on as we watched some great slam dunks and alley oops! Today, we were treated to some high school basketball as Centennial High School's Howler Tournament used our gym as an alternative site. 

Look for our report cards going home on Wednesday February 12, 2014.  We have disabled teacher logic at this time to allow teachers the opportunity to enter and edit marks and comments.  With the start of the new semester brings us to planning for next year.  Grade 7 & 8 students will be receiving complementary subject selection sheets on February 24, 2014 and we ask that they are filled in, signed and returned by February 28, 2014.  If parents of grade 7 & 8 students have any special placement requests for certain teachers for their child for next year, they can send their requests in writing to by March 1, 2014.  Please let us know what learning needs your child has that prompt the request. While we cannot guarantee that we will be able to place your child with the teacher you have requested, each request will be given consideration.  At MidSun School, a team of teachers who know your child place them into their instructional group. All classes are balanced for a variety of ability levels, sex, and leadership. Consideration is given to offer students the best class placement that allows for the most of their top complementary subject selections. It is a long and complicated process but an important one that sets up your child for the most successful year possible.  

Have a great weekend!
