Hi everyone,

Congratulations on finishing the first day of EQAO!

Here's a reminder of what I mentioned at the end of the day:

  • You have until tomorrow morning to submit the EQAO math review which I gave out on Friday (worth many signatures!!). Below, I will post a picture of the "Helpful Hints" that were up on the board on Friday.

  • If you haven't yet handed in your dance permission form and paid (online or cash/cheque), please do so as soon as possible. Dance begins next week.

Have a great night!

Social Studies Inquiry presentations

Good morning everyone,

I'm going to post below the list that was on the board yesterday, outlining the order in which you've signed up to share your Social Studies projects on Tuesday and Wednesday (and Thurs. if needed).

We'll have another 100-minute work period on Monday and I will be available to conference with any students I didn't have a chance to talk with on Thursday or Friday.

Please use some time this weekend, if necessary, to do the "at-home" parts some of you told me you were waiting to do (talking with family members, finding photos, etc.). I'm looking forward to learning some new and interesting things from all of you!
