Our two grade 8 classes had a meeting this morning with one of the guidance counsellors from R.S. McLaughlin C.V.I., to talk about options for course selections for grade 9. Students were given the information below on things to look for while selecting courses. Students who felt they were comfortable selecting courses did so, but no binding decisions have been made. Students can submit their final selections starting Monday, February 1st, and can submit them as late as Friday, February 26th. There is no bonus for submitting course selections earlier, nor any penalty for submitting them later (so long as they are submitted during the above timeframe). Students printed off their current course selections to take home. We asked them to have their course selections signed or initialled by a parent to show that the parents agree with the selection and the student can proceed to submit their final selection on the Career Cruising website. Again, nothing is final so far, this is just to get students and parents talking about their choices.
All of the slides below were explained verbally, and it is likely that some of the information below is not clear. Please contact me if you have general questions about course selection, or specific questions about your child.
