Memorial Registration and Open House

 Just a quick reminder that Memorial is hosting “First-Time Parents” on Tuesday, February 28 at 7:00pm .  This evening is meant for parents seeing their first child through high school.  This will provide an opportunity for parents to become familiar with the school and to meet the school administration and counsellors.  Students do not need attend the First-Time Parents meeting.  

Also, the “First Choice Open House” evening will be held at Memorial Composite High School on Thursday, March 2 starting at 6:00pm.  Open House will start with a welcoming address in the large gym.  All grade 9 students are encouraged to attend the Open House evening together with their parents in order to make their final course selections for grade 10.

The grade  9s will be registering for their high school courses at the beginning of March so this is a great opportunity to go meet the teachers and visit each department.  We will have the green recommendation and registration forms completed at the beginning of next week.  This will help guide you on who and where to visit.
