Please direct your grade 6 to 9 students to the link on the left side of the main blog page called CTF Option Course Registration – have them go to it and register for Term 1 CTF Courses prior to Friday September 7th OR simply go to https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfgiqDnOZFw2gF4uhI6es9uo0MCUhUaInKIfsM8896qX6dDsQ/viewform and fill in the registration form.
 
We encourage you to speak with your children about their choices and read the CTF Course Descriptions carefully and pick what they want – not what their friends are picking as we discourage switching as these courses are about exploring new avenues. Please note that some of the courses have fees attached to them and these fees will be automatically added to your child’s PowerSchool Account. CTF Option Course Descriptions can be found as a link on the the left side of the MLS Blog page or click this link https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Rif9UUpmLGQ1m0iGCLP0AkFu0WSHqIPk/view?usp=sharing.
Grade 6 Art with Ms Wayken on day 5 will be with students in group 1 this term and students in Art Group 2 & 3 will register for CTF courses. Students know which group they are in and their homeroom teachers also have a list posted. It is also important to be aware that Musical Theatre will run for 2 terms during terms 2 & 3, so if there is a grade 6 student wanting to be in Musical Theatre then he/she needs to check which art group they are in and speak to Ms Wayken so that changes can be made.
