Grade 9 Update from Midsun

Grade 9 students are off to a busy start!  They are involved in studying politics, chemistry and exponents.  Students are also proudly representing Midsun through their athletic and extra-curricular involvement.   As we prepare our students for future plans and high school study there are some upcoming events we encourage them to participate in.

Take Our Kids to Work Day
November 4, 2015

Take Our Kids to Work Day (TOKWD) is an annual event sponsored by the Learning Partnership that encourages grade 9 students to spend a day with their parent/guardian/family friend at their worksite.  It is an opportunity for students to develop an appreciation for the importance of staying in school, gaining exposure to skills required in today’s workplace, developing an appreciation for parents’ roles in making a living, and exploring career options in a practical way.  This is not a CBE sponsored event but we strongly encourage all our grade 9 students to attend.  Forms have been sent home with students and if they are attending, the form must be returned to their teacher ASAP.  Please note: the letter and form are available from the D2L shells of grade 9 core teachers.

Centennial High School Open House
November 19, 2015  7-9pm

Centennial High School, our feeder school, will be holding an open house from 7-9pm on November 19.  This is an opportunity for Midsun students to explore Centennial, meet staff and hear about courses, options, the Advance Placement Program (AP) and the Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP).  Students are encouraged to attend and see what Centennial has to offer!  Please note, if a student is considering attending a different high school, they should meet with Ms. Norcross to discuss.  Open houses will be scheduled throughout November and December at all Calgary high schools and families are encouraged to check the school websites for information on these events.

If you have any questions or concerns related to grade 9, please contact Mrs. Kaiser, grade 9 Learning Leader, via email (mekaiser@cbe.ab.ca) or phone (403-777-6430 x3045).
